I’m normally not big on clichés, but I make an exception for Christmas and New Year.
It’s is about being with family. It is about a new start. It is about reflection.
So I took a break from the blog and pretty much all social media. I wanted to be able to really focus on being with my family in Florida and not feel chained to my computer and my phone. It was very nice, but I’m back in action now! Please give me some time to catch up on all of your blogs though! Here are some highlights to catch you up:
Fella and I had a wonderful week in Florida with both of our families. There are a lot of different backgrounds and personalities between both families, so the fact that we emerged pretty much unscathed was a miracle.
Koda had an identity crisis and thought she was a water dog, not a pitbull. I think that she was the happiest of everyone to be in the warmth of Florida.
I had the pleasure of catching up with two of my oldest friends over a night of good food and good wine. I miss these girls dearly and can’t wait to see them in March again! And, of course, we had to go play on the creepy playset at the end of the evening.
We finally got the wedding invitations done and in the mail! It was quite a headache since the first printer severely screwed them up and they turned out red instead of blue. So happy to have this off my to do list!
I was a terrible blogger though and forgot to take pictures of one of the best parts: riding my bike outside! I’m not sure how I am supposed to convince myself to get back on the trainer now. Stupid winter.
In other news, it’s less than 16 weeks to NOLA 70.3! That means I get to officially say goodbye to off season and get my butt back in gear for training! Works cannot express how happy that makes me. I’m up about two pounds from Thanksgiving, but my original aim for December was just maintenance. I plan on being much lighter by April!
2014 has been a wonderful and challenging year. I have big plans and high hopes for 2015: a second 70.3, Fella’s first triathlon, and a wedding! I wish you all a happy and wonderful New Year!
