Day 354: Aug 1st - Angels among us.

Day Three Hundred Fifty-four - Angels among us.

There were several cool photo shots this morning.
 

Angel shaped cloud, or dove. I couldn't decide which. 


Alien eyeball forms in the flash of the lens.  Pretty cool.

Day 353: Thurs July 31st - it's a Thursday Selfie

Day Three Hundred Fifty-three - it's a Thursday Selfie :)


Went on a nice morning run with Izzy.  We decided to stop at the park and swing for a bit.
Though the sun started coming up, it wasn't too hot out. A great start to a beautiful morning.

Day 349, 350 & 351: Tues July 29th - The Path Ahead

Day 349, 350 & 351 -
The Path Ahead 

Living for today while looking ahead towards the future is a back and forth balancing act that again my brain struggles with, but in a good way.  Staying present moment focused can be so dang hard!  Especially when fun ideas, future possibilities and adventures fill me with excitement and hope. 
But alas, I cannot stay in the what-if places...  instead I must be at peace with life happening in the here and now, that is the best place to be.

Day 347: Friday July 25th - My must have for summer.

New to my must haves list. Much needed for long and especially hot days.
Day 347 - 
My <new> must have
for summer


Anyone who knows me, has heard me complain that I do NOT do heat well. After much research I came across these saltstick tabs. They are now on my must have for summer running and other outdoor activities.  I have noticed I feel much better during and after running, though I still have to remind myself to properly hydrate.
Is summer over yet??  :) 
Where's my dang water bottle....




Day 346: Thurs July 24th - Happy State Holiday

Day 346 - Happy State Holiday

Izzy here helping Jax to chill out on a hot day. He was mostly down with the idea, though understandably didn't love the late night fireworks close by, repeatedly growling and sometimes a startled BARK! when the blast was especially loud.  He doesn't seem particularly scared of them, just cautious, confused and sometimes alarmed, giving us the "what the hell is THAT' look from his bead.
 Overall the holiday was a fun, productive, and even at times, relaxing day off. 
Made some delicious B.L.T sandwiches and for dinner tried a new recipe - a healthy avocado cream sauce, fresh tomato, basil and garlic tossed with pasta. It was delicious!  A BIG thanks Runners World magazine for the recipe. We loved it.

Day 340, 341, 342, 343, and 344 - Tues July 22nd - There and Back Again

Day 340-344 - 
There and Back Again

I'm back. It was a nice being away. I loved being in nature, camping for the most part, fishing, swimming in the lake, light days of running, cooking good food, but most of all, hanging out with Justin and the girls without work or worries of time getting in the way.
Sunday was especially fun, we got up super early and went fishing (though we didn't catch anything), swimming in the lake, playing fetch with Jax and a stick in the water and watching our girls having fun splashing around and being adventurous. None of us wanted the day to end.
