Quiet mornings after busy weeks call for the classics.

Exploring new parks and admiring my 35 week shadow bumpie. My 60" legs are pretty impressive too.

Scenes from the Week

Birthday Celebrations and a Visit with the Minimalists.

Yesterday was a fun day of celebration. My hubby’s birthday. I love birthdays. I used to not give them much thought and truthfully, I don’t really think too much about my own, but my hubby and kids are a whole different ballgame. I love how we approach the day: not with a focus on giftContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: The strangest marathon I didn’t run

Ok, I had the craziest dream last night. I’ve been thinking a lot about some of my goals and plans for after baby comes. I guess I’ve been thinking a lot about running, racing and my ultimate goals and my brain needed to do something with all that mojo. I had a dream that IContinue Reading

Random musings from a First Trimester Pregnant Lady

Remember those old chain emails that used to go around? Fill out these questions and send them to all your friends and miraculous things will happen?! Yeah, those. I used to LOVE doing those. Not because I believe in the karma of them (for the record, nothing miraculous or horrendous happened to me as aContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: The studying edition

With my exam coming up on Thursday, I’m entering into crunch time (and possibly panic mode) to get my studying time in while going to work and not neglecting my kids or home too much. This will be a very high caffeine week. I make no apologies for that. Come Thursday afternoon, I will beContinue Reading

My Quest for Simplicity and Healing

This year has been a year of transition for me. I went back to work in February, I committed myself to a whole bunch of running awesomeness and finally “came out” as a vegetarian to my mother (last week…still not 100% sure how that’s gone over. It’s a complicated thing). One of the biggest transitionsContinue Reading
