It's Currently 2015!

What happened to the second half of 2014?!
I really fell of the grid.
But, life was crazy. Good crazy. Sad crazy. All kinds of crazy.

That's what's so awesome about a "new year."  You get that preverbial "clean slate" to start all over with.
So I'm starting with a blog post.  Is there any better way to kick off the year that with a currently that's chock full of wishes & resolutions?
I think not. #Imayevenhashtaginthispost

Listening: Acapella makes my heart so happy!

Loving: My mother in law got me the most amazing blanket (ever) for Christmas.  "Because you're always cold!"  {Sooooo TRUE!}
*Brrr!* I better stay under this blanket #alldayeveryday

Thinking: Today is the LAST day I'll be 29! WHAT?! 30, seems like such a ridiculous number.  I mean, regrouping all of those ones into a ten is... I dunno! What is it? I have no words for how strange it seems in my head.
I've been thinking all morning about all of the amazing things that will happen at 30.  My first half marathon (hopefully), the possibility of an incredible vacation, maybe feeling a little wiser now that I'm in a new decade, &....

Wanting: I get my husband back after I turn 30!!! So very soon he will finally be home from his latest deployment. I am Thrilled. Elated. Ecstatic!
Joy! Joy! Joy!

Needing: I've been running for a few years now, but one of the reasons for my blogging absense is that I've been running a LOT more in the past few months.  Unfortunately, my holiday damper was the realization that I definitely pulled one of those important knee muscles.  I've been on a running break to allow it to heal, but I'm clearly impatient.  Why won't it heal faster??? I have a 10-miler next weekend & a half marathon in February.  If you're reading this, please say a healing prayer! There's lots of power in that.

YES: This year, my only resolution is to finish what I start.  For example, if I start reorganizing the kitchen cupboards, I will not leave everything on the counters for daaaaays.  Imma get. it. done.
(I'm hoping my knee heals ASAP so this can apply to the races I've got coming up, too!)

MAYBE: I run a lot.  I do yoga-esque workouts often.  I lift weights 1-2 times a week.  I'd really like to think about doing more with weights in the gym this year. ...We'll see!

I WISH: I wish & pray & pray & pray for GOOD HEALTH! Not just for myself, but for my family, friends, & all of YOU!

What are you ready for in 2015???


  1. Ahh! I see you teach in Delaware! You're close to me! I teach in Jersey! :) Please thank your husband for his services! I will be praying for your knee to recover. I highly suggest running a half-marathon! I ran one last April (2014). I hadn't trained too much leading up to the marathon, and the day before it I was considering dropping down and just running the 8K. But I woke up in the morning and told myself "I'll do as much as I can. I paid for it - so let's see how far I can go". Sure enough, did it within 2 and a half hours (without training). I would encourage you to go for it, only after your knee recovers. ;)

    p.s. - Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy early birthday! I LOVE my 30's and I'm sure you will too! I'm 34 and things seem to get better each year - seriously! I can imagine that for someone as active as you describe that your knee injury is difficult to deal with. Prayers that you heal quickly! Happy 2015!

  3. Hopefully 30 is wonderful for you! I am turning 30 later this month and am feeling pretty good about it too! 30 is the year I get married! Enjoy the rest of your break!
