I wish you could meet my sister, Whitney.
Simply put, she is amazing.
She knows every line to every Seinfeld episode ever written. She has run a marathon without breaking a sweat (okay…..maybe she huffed and puffed a time or two), adopted a dog refugee from Hurricane Katrina and left home to star in an off-Broadway play. She makes lampshades out of old photography slides and boxes out of record albums and covers soap with felted wool and occasionally creates an embroidered tray or two.
So when Whitney called me to ask me to pin where I walk…..
….who was I to argue with this Seinfeld-loving-soap-making-lamp-shade-creator sister of mine?
Here’s where I walk.
On a gravel path down by the lake near the rocks and the beach.
With the sailboat marina in the distance and tiny little fishing boats dotting the horizon.
And my playlist set to “I Would Walk 500 Miles.”
With super cute pink tennis shoes.
So we salute you, Whitney, my pink tennis shoes and I.
And your Walk It. Pin It. Win It. contest.
I’m happy to participate.
I just have one quick question.
Do I get extra credit if I walk with lipstick on ? 🙂
PS Here are the details on Whitney’s contest (she’s the Digital Communications Director for a division of The American Heart Association).
PPS Let me know if you take a picture! I would love to pin them to my Walking Inspiration Pinterest Board.
PPPS I Instgramed these photos. I truly heart Instagram, but I think I’m saving my infatuation for another post.
