Whew! What a busy month!
- The Buddy Man turned 4-years-old. I can’t even believe it. As Gretchen Rubin says, “The days are long but the years are short.” We had a Blippi-themed birthday party and it turned out very well. My extended family was in town and the Buddy was thrilled beyond belief. The cake was amazing!
- I was so happy to assist a friend with the planning of her wedding this year (stepping back in an old life as an Event Planner). The wedding is this upcoming weekend. Yay! But it’s been a world-wind of preparation.
- I rose to the challenge and participated in the #write31days for the month of October. The series, This Bookman: Meditations & Miscellany was a lot of fun. Thank you for reading!
- I ran the 15th annual Liz Hurley Ribbon Run. I didn’t participate last year and I hated that. I am so happy that I chose to participate this year. Even though it was cloudy. It was cold. It was raining. It did reignite my love of running in races. I’m already thinking about my next one.
I stayed sane by focusing on the priorities and letting go of things that would have taken my focus away. It was hard and I had a few lapses. But I am proud to say that, for the most part, I was able to do it. I think the 5:30 AM runs and pretty good eating habits helped.
AND I met the Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy and the author of the book I’d Rather Be Reading. It was awesome.
What have you been up to? What’s keeping you sane?
