I am happy to announce that I have been much better at taking time to simply kick back and relax. This may be evident, as I haven’t posted in a little while (eek!) — sorry! My mind has just been elsewhere lately. Work is picking up, and I’ve been doing my best to get plenty of gym-time and running in before half-marathon training really kicks in next month. On Saturday, myself, Richard, and two of my girlfriends ran in the local “Color My Run 5K” — that somehow ended up only being about 2 miles…? Not going to lie, this did NOT disappoint my tired 9am legs, ha! We had a blast!

I am SUPER thrilled to announce that I won this, so Rich and I get to stay here thanks to ALL of the friends and family (and complete strangers!) that voted for my Beltie pic! Not sure when we’ll stay yet, have to check our calendars! Expect a blog post FULL of Fearrington pics following our stay, though!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

Speaking of getaways, we’re headed to Topsail Island for a weekend away from all things work, house-chores, and being woken up by these little beasts at 4:42 every morning (don’t ask).

I’m looking forward to plenty of this all weekend long…

Ew, did I just say ya’ll…
