Salt Lake...the Windy City?

Tuesday, March 30, 2010
Today was soooo windy. It felt like a tornado was coming. After living in Rexburg, Idaho for three years, I've become quite annoyed with big gusty winds.. But I sucked it up and had my lover boy take my pics because it was good lighting today.

Okaaaay, I really didn't wear these wedges all day. I changed to flats at work and walking home. But to be honest, I prefer flats over heels any day! ...mostly because I like being able to run...especially since I'm always in a hurry!
