I am in such a great place in my life now, and I'm just beyond happy and grateful for everything in my life. No, I didn't overdose on a happy pills...I just decided that I had enough with the unhappiness in my life and that I was the only one that could change that.
|A oh-so happy picture seemed fitting.|
This road bike is how I plan on achieving one very cool goal - a century ride. You see in January when I was registering my team for the MS walk I pointed out to my boyfriend (don't worry - I'll get to him in a bit) that while the walk is a tradition with my friends that I actually have always wanted to do the 100 mile bike challenge. Of course this was pre-fancy bike and as soon as I though out the fact that I wanted to do that ride my boyfriend quickly responded "so do it." Apparently the universe agreed and sure enough within two weeks I had been awarded enough money for my fancy bike. I've thrown myself into cycling and I love having a new goal to work towards.
Last weekend I even competed in my very first bike race (first race of any kind!!) and had a blast. Sure, I didn't come anywhere close to first but the fact that I was out there and kicking butt was great. Oh and I totally won my age group
I've been incredibly blessed in the past year and a half and have finally learned how to enjoy life, even when things don't go as planned.
Last May, I met my boyfriend. We just celebrated one very happy year together. He's kinda the icing on the cake in my life, everything is just sweeter when hes around. As my family would say I haven't done anything but smile since he came into the picture. So meet Erik. He's basically pretty darn awesome and I have nothing but very nice things to say about him.
|That's us in NYC...fun fact - that was the first time I had ever been to NYC...since then I've been once more. Turns out NYC is kinda cool. Oh and even though it looks like he has a earring he totally doesn't - that's just a silly reflection.|
So yeah...that's life...a year and a half later after I last pushed published.
I'm not quite sure what my plans for blogging are anymore...today I had the urge to write and so I did...maybe it will happen sometime soon.
