Killer leg workout

  Can you believe it’s already November?! I feel like I’m saying that every month because this year is flying by at a scary pace. Daniel and I just spent the weekend visiting family in Moscow (Idaho, not Russia). He and I both went to school there, and fell in love with the chill, eclectic culture.

Some back story on how we arrived at this place… We knew this was something we were going to be doing in the future, but were hoping it would be a...
