Happy Patriot’s Day! We’re in the second year of not having the marathon to watch today, but I love that the organization is still making sure that this weekend is special for all of the participants.

Happy Thursday everyone! We had a lovely Easter celebration this Sunday and just wanted to share some pictures that I took. On Saturday, Eleanor and I baked some sugar cookies and used Easter themed cookie cutters (bunnies, eggs, flowers, sheep, etc.). David also picked us up some beautiful flowers for the kitchen. Sunday afternoon, we … Continue reading Easter Celebrations & A New B.A.A. Challenge
Another year down (and another birthday during the pandemic). Last year the big outing was to go to Rare Steakhouse at Encore, but of course, everything was shut down just a few days prior.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a safe and fun celebration. I was in bed by 11PM; to be honest I think the last time I stayed up to ring in the new year was in 2015. Woo-wee, what a doozy of a year. I think this year had more peaks and valleys … Continue reading Looking Back on 2020
Since I started running, in 2007, I’ve made it a goal to run a race every year. I ran two races after I had Eleanor in 2017 and even ran a 5 miler when 13 weeks pregnant with Lincoln. This year, I didn’t want to break that streak, and thankfully so many race organizers in … Continue reading Virtual Races of 2020

It was a really nice set up, being able to sit outside and order by texting (the weather was beautiful!). … Continue reading What a Week!
