Sunday Gratitude.

I started running again.

It's been a bit busy around my new home. Building. Cleaning. Unpacking. Overwhelming. I realized I needed to get out and get a bit un-focused. So I started running in my new hood. And wow. I am blessed. There is something fantastic to look at each and every moment.

I know the month of August is more than half over, but I only just realized that we're in the month of August yesterday. That's how crazed my mind has been. Downloading this darling calendar from Rebekka Seale has helped me appreciate the bits of the month that are left. It's like receiving a virtual bouquet of seasonal bliss.

I've been re-grouping and prepping for the week ahead. It's time to take action, get my work plan initiated, and engage this city with all that I have. My expectations for me are stacked to the Heavens. I have to remember to take a deep breath and give myself time to adapt to the new surroundings. The new surroundings make me marvel.

Thankful today for a husband who is as crazy nomadic as I am. Thankful for my new little home. Thankful for the sun coming through my window. And thankful for excellent Thai takeout that delivers 24 hours a day!

I love New York!


  1. So now that you're living in the best city in the world... I shall be stalking your blog here and there!! Haha. I am very happy for you guys. I also wanted to throw it out there that I went to a really awesome church in NYC called Trinity Grace. They have lots of locations throughout the city, but I went to the Chelsea one. I don't know if you're looking for a church or not, but I highly recommend it. Which part of the city are you living in now?

    1. Sarah! Please, stalk away! I love that you're a New York girl! Anytime you guys want to visit you have a place to stay with us! We are on the Upper West Side. I will definitely check out that church, thanks for the recommendation!

  2. awesome... Say hello to my home state for me!

    1. Awww I didn't know this was your home state! It says hello back :-)
