Wait... I have a blog?

It happened. I promised myself it wouldn't, but it did. My blog went the way of the many, many diaries that proceeded it. Ugh, for shame!

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! 
Trip to Miami to see friends
Hanging out in their AMAZING pool!
Kayaking through the mangroves
Family trip to the Poconos

...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. 
And throughout all this time, our main focus has been our wonderful Pierce! She is six months old now and a ball of energy. Her training is going exceptionally well, but I'll likely do an update on that in another post. Here are a gazillion pictures to hold you over.
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!
