Wintery Wonderland

Mother Nature is making up for lost time this winter because it’s snowing like crazy right now.

This week I’ve been substituting for the art teacher at the high school I did my student teaching at, but I’m home today because it’s a snow day! I loved snow days as a kid, but I definitely love them even more as a teacher.

Cash spent his morning whining as he paced around my apartment. This dog is obsessed with snow! After I got tired of listening to him, I bundled up and we ventured outside.

I planned to walk down to a new-to-me trail that isn’t too far from my apartment so I could let Cash run around without a leash. Unfortunately, it was a lot colder and windier than I expected and my hands were freezing even though I had gloves on. Cash was having the time of his life but was starting to form icicles on his face and snowballs on his paws. We did a loop around the neighborhood before coming in the dry off.

My plans for the rest of the day include cleaning/organizing/working out. And maybe a nap.

Cash’s plans include playing with his rope, sleeping, and wishing he were outside.

Happy Thursday! 134 days until Run to Remember!

Summer Highlights

Happy first day of Fall!! There’s not a lot that makes me more excited than gorgeous New England foliage, wearing sweaters, and hearty comfort food.

But before I get ahead of myself, I’d like to look back on the amazing Summer I’ve had.

I graduated.

Had a graduation party.

Where I got a surprise visit from my twin sister, who flew in from Alaska (This video still makes me cry).

I became a mom to a furry little monster.

Met some new friends.

And spent time with old ones.

I went to a G.Love concert.

I went shopping.

And did some more shopping.

My cousin James came home for a few weeks.

I found some awesome roommates.

And I moved to Portland.

Where I spent some quality time on our front porch.

I started student teaching.

And I ran a 10K.

And to think, I referred to this Summer as “uneventful.”
