Hey There!

It's been a minute since I dropped a post, hasn't it?!  I didn't mean to stay away for THIS long, sheesh!  Where did the time go?  No seriously, how is it June already? And what have I been up to?

Same ole, same ole.  Life, the grind, family, etc.  Not much has changed on that front, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.  Considering how tricky it's been with my parents the last few years, I'll take it.

I had the opportunity to road trip to Pittsburgh recently, and I had so much fun.  It coincided with the PGH marathon, which Sarah, aka SparklyRunner, was running, and since I've always wanted to meet her, I decided to make a long weekend out of it.

Sarah was absolutely lovely and it was so great to meet her, her fiance Matthew, and a whole bunch of her friends whom I immediately liked.  Especially Lauren, Gloria and Jeff.  We chatted like old friends and it was just so much fun to meet another fantastic blend, fellow WWer, and all around sweet awesome girl.

P.S. Congrats to you and Matthew on your wedding, Sarah!

I had fun in Pittsburgh, sightseeing, walking around the city.  If you've never been, I highly recommend going.  Especially to Falling Waters.  I'll leave you with some pictures of my trip.

I dropped into CrossFit Mt. Lebanon while there to keep up with fitness. It was a really nice facility, much bigger than the gym I go to back home.

I've also been reading a lot more than I have in the past.  Books about meditation and positive thinking.   Meditation is still something I'm a novice at, but I find that taking a few minutes in the mornings to just breathe calmly and set my intention for the day helps a lot.  Helps with stress, helps me to have a better mindset and a better attitude for the day ahead of me.

So that's what I've been up to.  A little of this, a little of that.  Til next time.  :-)
