Hey hey! Well, I would explain to you why I haven’t posted in so long but I’m afraid I would probably need another entire post for that. So much has happened! Holidays, an engagement (I LOVE WEDDINGS YAYAYAY), a semester of college finished, and an awesome couple of months.
I am currently sitting on my front porch in BEAUTIFUL weather after being stuck inside from the rain and cold for the last week. LOVE IT. Front porch sitting is my favorite past time. Well, it’s a tie between that and baking things that aren’t good for me.
I don’t really have huge news or anything. Just wanted to chat. That’s also one of my favorite things. Sitting with friends over a cup of coffee or on a front porch and just talking, learning what’s going on in their lives and just loving on them. So since I’m on my front porch, you should go get a cup of coffee and we can just have a virtual coffee/front porch date. I’ll wait. Ya good? Okay cool.
So let me just start by saying.. It’s 2014. I seriously still remember last New Years Eve like it was yesterday. Man, that year flew by. But it’s also god to look back on a year and to be a little sad to see it go. To me that shows me that it did something right. I was a little sad to see 2013 go but boy am I ready for 2014. Bring it on 2014. I am ready. When the new year comes around you always see resolutions and stuff like that everywhere and honestly I don’t think I’ve ever had a resolution. They just always seem so..weird. Wow… I did a great job explaining myself there.. maybe I need to make a resolution to use words better. I’m the weird one. Anyways, instead of resolutions this year I am focusing more on goals which now that I think about it are probably the same thing as resolutions but whatever. Humor me. I haven’t really set any concrete ones yet because I want to make sure that they are goals that are really important to me and that they are achievable. One kind of new thing that I did do however is, I wrote myself a letter. Now before you blow it off becasaus eI know it sounds super cheese ball, hear me out. I first saw the idea at the beginning of the year and I kind of thought about it a couple of times and thought it was a cool idea and stuff but I never really got into it. But then last night I just decided to do it. I sat down and I wrote a letter that I will open on New Years Day 2015. It wasn’t a big, elaborate letter. It was just stuff that by New Years Day 2015, I want to/hope to achieve and overcome and it was also just encouragement. It was actually really cool. I have had some trouble knowing and discerning who I wanted to be as a person and just where and who I want to be in the Lord. (If that sounds super lame and cliche, sorry not sorry.) And so last might I just sat down and wrote without thinking and what do you know.. it all came out on paper. So anyways, it was super cool and I encourage you to do it. If you think it sounds uber lame-o and you just want to make resolutions and do them, then all the power to you. I respect you, bro. (another resolution: stop saying bro?) I’ll let you know for sure how I really like it in about.. 355 days.
In other news, like every other impatient human being, I’m ready for spring. Notice I didn’t say summer. No. I really don’t like summer because I really don’t like being hot. and sweaty. Especially at the same time. But it kind of makes it bearable because NO SCHOOL HOLLA. So yeah, I’m just going to keep wearing flannels and Sockos until spring arrives.
Went on my first ever road trip over Christmas break. IT WAS AWESOME AND I AM GOING ON LOTS MORE. That’s all.
Hmmm, what else.. Oh!! I’m training for another half marathon. First one was a success because in case you didn’t hear.. my sister got PROPOSED TO. They were on tv. They’re kind of a big deal and it’s going to be an awesome wedding. Anyways, we, also with my awesome runner mom, are running another half in April to try to PR (personal record). Also because I need to trim down a bit before all the weddings I’ll be attending this summer. A great training schedule that use very regularly is here and you can find them all over the internet to suite you. If you’ve never run one, you should try it. I know 13.1 miles sounds like a lot but if you find someone you enjoy running with and train together, it is a blast! Trust me. And when you start running all the time.. you can eat more. HOLLA.
Well now that I have officially blabbed for half an hour.. I think thats all! I always feel so excited when January comes around. I feel so blessed to get to see another year and to know that an entire year of possibilities is ahead. I’d love nothing more that to hear your goals or resolutions or just about stuff. It’s going to be a good one my friends! Well, now my coffee is cold because I talked for so long. Your turn!
P.S. Another resolution: (didn’t I say I wasn’t doing resolutions?) MORE COFFEE/FRONT PORCH DATES. I can definitely dig that.
