It’s been a little while since I’ve sat down and put fingers to keys. So much good is happening in my life and I find myself floating from one happy to the next.
I’m still on a hiker’s high from our 41-mile trek on the Appalachian Trail. I keep starting posts about the journey, but have yet to finish them. Soon. The AT has been a total game-changer in my life.
Our homestead continues to thrive – from the active bees to the growing chickens, the 20+ fruit trees, perennials, and the handful of annuals I’ve planted, we’re munching away daily on garden eats.
Work, while in a transition, is in a good place. I’m working around-the-clock (I’m currently taking a break from travel planning right now to write this), but I couldn’t be happier about it. I haven’t complained about work in almost 5 weeks. Though I’m sleep-deprived and moving a mile a minute, it’s sure sign that things are moving in the right direction.
Shane is happy. He’s always happy, so that’s not new, but he’s in a good place all around, too. And that makes me happy.
I’m planning work-related travel to places like Aspen, Denver, Toronto, La Jolla, L.A., and San Diego. Does that need explanation? Pinch me!
I’ve chosen to cut back on fitness classes – from 11 to 5/week. It’s been quite an adjustment, but I’m loving the time I have to dedicate to my own running and yoga practice. Marathon training is right on track.
Speaking of running, I’ve signed up for a half marathon in Chicago this summer, and a Ragnar Relay race from Chatanooga to Nashville this fall (with a group of 10 girls from my alma mater). Loving race travel–especially for these fun events.
My newest fitness class, INSANITY, is taking off like crazy and I’m so excited to share it with my fitness community (and new people). It’s so rewarding to complete a tough workout like INSANITY, but to do it surrounded by people you adore? That’s pure magic.
Summertime traditions like berry-picking, jam-making, early morning kayaking, waltzes around the homestead, and nights spent sitting under our tree are here which fills me with so much joy.
I want to kiss all of these sweet moments in my life–hold them close and not let them fade away. I’m basking in all of this sunshine and happiness and enjoying that I’m finally in a place where everything has achieved balance, order, simplicity, and loveliness.
What’s the saying? My cup runneth over.
