My hubby didn't get me a parka for nothin'!

Whew!  I'm tired... but in a good way.  I decided today was the day to start my "lunch" exercises and make the most of my mid-day break.  Though 40 degrees and windy outside, I bucked up and admitted to myself: my hubby didn't get me a down Patagonia parka for nothing!  Appropriately bundled, I headed out the door to walk to my newfound favorite lunchspot: an organic cafe in an office building nearby...
