Life Lately

This is cool.

You may, or may not, have noticed that I've been pretty sparse with my posts lately. Life has just seemed to pick up - I'm enjoying it, but definitely missing my daily time for reading and writing blog posts. It's been a while since my last post where I just wrote about life. So here's one to catch you all up. 

In a list form.

  • Since February I have given up meat. I've also given up most animal products in general. Cheese is a hard one, though. I've really tried to focus on a whole foods, plant based diet. If you'd like to hear more about this, let me know. I'd love to elaborate and share!
  • I recently passed the one year mark at work! One year! I'm so thankful for my job, the things I've learned, and the people I've met.
  • Chris and I have started house hunting! That's right! Hopefully in the next couple of months we will be moving into our own place - we're SO excited!
  • I've started running. I've already written a post about this, but I'm considering a half marathon in the fall. It's scary (and I've kind of taken a couple weeks off), but I'm excited for something to work towards.
  • A few weeks ago I met with a best friend of mine in Atlanta and took her and her fiance's Save the Date photos. I've been a fan and lover of photography for years and I'm finally taking a step forward with the possible pursuit of it becoming a hobby on the weekends! I'll share those photos with you all soon!
  • One of my other best friends (I mean, fraannnds) is actually moving down here to Alabama. We had a speech therapist position open up at my hospital  - she applied, was offered the job, and accepted! I'm beyond ecstatic for her to have this opportunity and to have a familiar face here with me!

So those are some of the main things going on right now - we've also had weekend trips, weddings, graduations, visitors, and other odds and ends keeping us busy, but needless to say, things have been nonstop and I'm happy I could take a minute and share some of these things with you! Hope you all are well!

You have a lot on the go, so everybody will understand if you can't post regularly, and when you do - it's always a treat!

I would love to hear about your switch to vegetarian/semi-vegan! I'm a long time reader and have been considering the switch as well and would love some pointers!

Is that a local (you're in the Bham area, right?) 1/2 marathon? I'm trying to give myself a goal to work to (that will get my butt running!), and a 1/2 would be perfect.

Sounds like a lot of great stuff going on lately!! It was right around this time last year that I decided to register for my first half marathon in the fall of 2011. It was wonderful, and now I'm hooked on running and all things working out! I say do it! And congrats on a year at your job!!
