Summer has certainly been a little bit nutty, as evidenced here by the radio silence on my blog. But it’s all for good reasons. While I’ve certainly thought a lot about posting and getting back to blogging the past couple months…life, work, fun, enjoying summer weather, and spontaneous summer adventures have taken far bigger priority over spending more time in front of a computer screen.
June was full of good things – a work trip to Miami, a couple (really successful – see below!) fishing trips to Ft. Myers, a crazy work road trip through Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kentucky, lots of biking, weekend visits to the lake, camping with friends, a gorgeous wedding, a concert, and catching all the sunshine possible.
The fun carried on into July with spending the 4th at the lake, a cool work event at another fun lake, beginning my training for my next marathon (I’m running the NYC marathon on 11/1!), another lovely wedding, practicing and perfecting my wake surfing skills, a work + play trip to New York City, biking through the Iowa countryside with tens of thousands of happy people during RAGBRAI, and enjoying a couple weeks at home before more work travel.
Between all of this – it doesn’t leave a whole lot of free time, but I’ve been able to squeeze in some date nights, some yoga, girlfriend time, and a little down time. Here’s to adding a little more blog time to that list, while enjoying the rest of these sunshine-filled summer days.
