To celebrate our 1 year anniversary, Nick and I flew down to a beautiful all-inclusive resort in Playa del Carmen for 7 wonderful days.  We ran in the mornings, spent our afternoons reading and relaxing on the beautiful white beaches, and shared romantic dinners and walks in the evenings.  Wonderful doesn't even begin to describe it.  We also found time to parasail on our anniversary, and ventured to Tulum to explore a magical ancient Mayan village on the Caribbean.  Jealous yet?
Here are a few pictures from our trip:


I'm back!

where do I even begin?  It's been almost 2 months since my last post. 2 months.  What have I been doing for the past 2 months?  Let me fill you in...


Nick is home!

I brought Nick home July 21st, and he's been home so long now that it feels like he never left.  We've frolicked in Mexico for a week (happy 1yr anniversary to us!), played in the sand of Wrightsville beach (for the 1st time in 5 years... since the day we loaded up the moving truck and headed to TN), and just enjoyed every single moment of being together again.  I don't know how I ever survived 8 months without him.  


I'm 1 week away from my 1st half marathon.

I briefly skimmed my previous posts before writing this, and I must admit I giggled every time I read about my running.  The last time I mentioned my training I was barely surviving 2-3 mile runs, and now my easy runs are 5+ miles.  My long runs on Saturday are 10-12 miles, and although painful at times I always make it.  It's amazing to see the progress I've made in just a few short months.  On Saturday I will run the Women's Half Marathon and finally reach my goal!  (I've also lost a few more pounds, not that I'm counting or anything :)


Big changes are on the horizon... hopefully.

Nick and I have spent a lot of the last 2 months thinking, and planning, and getting ready for where life will take us next (and no, I'm not pregnant).  We have a lot of big plans, and for now I'm crossing my fingers that everything falls in place the way we need it to.  When things become a little more definitive, I'll be happy to share.  


I feel like I should have a lot more to say after such a long hiatus, but my mind has gone completely blank.  Stay tuned for pictures from Mexico and details on readjusting after the deployment.  It feels good to be back!
