Today is my birthday. This is 35??!! What have I done today? Took my kids to school, watched some tv, and really was rather lazy. Hey I needed it after the holiday break. My gift was my kids going back to school. haha The holidays wore me out. I had plans to get a run in… write some blog posts… catch upon email…. Not much of any of it happened and I am kinda ok with it. I guess you could say it was my gift to myself was to take it easy for one day.
Most people would find something deep and moving to say on their birthday, but I don’t really have any poetic words to share. Admittedly I am even struggling to find what to write in this post. It is the new year and we should all be inspired to change our lives and plan for the upcoming year, but I am not quite there yet. Not quite sure what I want to change.
I will be doing my very first marathon in less than two weeks. This will be a huge accomplishment for me. One thing that I can check off my bucket list. I am getting more excited as the days gets closer! Follow my journey on the #houmarathon hashtag as well as that of other ambassadors. I will update soon when I get my bib number so that you can follow my progress the day of the race.
Some of my plans for this year is to be more consistent with this blog. I am already in the works to do a weekly recipe. I have to make a few so that I can write them first. Most likely it will be on Fridays. I want to know though what you would like to see me write about. More recipes? Allergy friendly foods? More fitness? More car news? As you may have seen I recently updated the look of the blog and want to make sure it is a place you want to visit and read.
I do want this next year of life to be one where I discover more of myself and who I am at 35. New jobs, new travel, new ideas. I don’t want to do things just because I feel like I should or could bring more money for our family, but do things because I want to and they interest me. I am excited for this year. I am excited for new.
So This is 35. Bring it on!!
