|Shelby and I at my bridal shower last spring.|
Shelby just started a new blog and she is off to a wicked awesome start. She blogs frequently and has great content. She never misses a workout or an opportunity to try new foods. Her philosophy on food and fitness is spot on. I know she’s my sister-in-law so I’m definitely biased, but in all honesty, this girl has got it goin’ on. You will love her blog.
