This past week I traveled to the Sacramento, the California State Capitol, for a business event. I realized that although I’ve been at the airport several times, it was never to spend time in the city of Sacramento!
The one free afternoon I had was spent walking around the capitol grounds. It is very accessible and I loved the memorials in the parks including this firefighters memorial, a veteran’s memorial and a beautiful rose garden.
I realize today is Mother’s Day and wish all you moms reading this a wonderful day. It’s nice to have all stop and think about what moms do all year long.
Around the Web
Although I didn’t get a lot of blog reading done this past week, there are some articles I didn’t want you to miss. Enjoy!
First of all, I’m a little late mentioning it but Brooke on a Diet shares why she refused to put a shirt on for Shape magazine. Good for her; they were using body shame instead of showing the real results of hard work to achieve a large weight loss.
Satisfying Eats has a recipe for breakfast casserole with spaghetti squash. It looks great and I like the idea of cutting out the potatoes.
