I really enjoy writing this blog, capturing both my mundane and exciting moments, but life just seems to get in the way. Time slips away, planned posts forgotten. However, I don't want this to be another abandoned diary stored away with two pages of completed thoughts. I want to keep up this memory book, recipe catalog, random thought capturer (is that a word?). So I'm back!
Here's a very brief view of what I've been up to:
Celebrated one year of marriage!
Incidentally, we celebrated in the same spot Kyle proposed!
Kyle completed the Ragnar Relay, a 200 mile continuous relay race across Maryland
|Side note: this guy ran 4 legs of the race and completed them all with sub 7:30 mile pace!|
|Hanging out in their AMAZING pool!|
|Kayaking through the mangroves|
...where my brother proposed! Thrilled to have Rosie *officially* joining our family in November of next year.
Trip to Pittsburgh to see my college roommate!
|They were fabulous hosts even if their sweet yorkie, Olive, wasn't too thrilled with her house guest.|
I completed my first 5K, a night color run with girlfriends
Halloween - or as I like to call it 'Any excuse to dress in costume'
|Pierce was a shark and we were shark attack victims|
|Mario, Luigi and Yoshi. She hates us now...|
House updates (more to come on this)
Zoe's birthday weekend in the city (she is 7! How did that happen?!)
Three Thanksgivings (and the resulting 5 pounds)
|Thompson family Thanksgiving - and Kyle sporting his Movember foo man chu to raise awareness of prostate cancer|
Holiday parties galore!
|My company party was Roaring 20's themed. Such a blast.|
|Before she conquered the stairs|
|Muddy after swimming in the river|
|First time patrolling at a bar. She found it thrilling.|
|On duty in her vest|
|Relaxing at the lake|
|8 weeks vs 5 months!|
|My little shark|
|She loves destroying toys|
|Part of Zoe's birthday was playing with 6 of Pierce's 9 siblings - impossible to get them all in one picture|
|Pro swimmer - I'll share more on this later|
|Zoe and Pierce are best buds|
|This is what she does while I'm working|
|She is a snuggler|
I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season!
