Cherry Blossom 10-Miler Recap

cherry blossom 10 milerHiii! Okay, I promise I’m still alive… it’s been awhile though. Between work, family life, and my little “side hustle”, things have been pretty crazy. Oh, not to mention that fact that our house has been a germ factory for over 3 weeks. The three of us have had some sort of cold or infection nonstop. There was a period of about 10 days where no one got much sleep. Honestly, I don’t know how anyone with non-sleeping kiddos does it. I was a MESS. Lindsey can attest to it. I practically broke down one day last week. There’s a reason sleep deprivation is a torture tactic, ya’ll. Anyway, we are all mostly (fingers crossed) healthy, and back to sleeping once again.

Maybe it’s that Harper is 15 months old, and no longer the fussy, newborn who needs constant holding and attention? Gosh, she’s the furthest from that now. Miss Independent. Wonder who she gets that from? 😉 Maybe it’s that I’ve finally started to push the guilt aside and make that time (with reassurance from my hubs that it’s okay). Or maybe it’s because I’m truly focused in on my One Little Word for 2017, which is “self”. Whatever it is, it’s made me feel a bit more like myself than I have in a long time. (more…)
