Dive Like A Spartan

This weekend I submerged myself in freezing water (at least it felt that way)…why you may ask? Because I am a crazy lady who loves fish and may have been one in my past life. When I say fish I mean anything living underwater because even the most insignificant looking species can bring tears to … Continue reading Dive Like A Spartan

Get Back to Your Roots
