I never really knew what people were referring to when they talked about the “lazy days of summer”, because our summers have always seemed to be more hectic and crazy than any other time of the year!
Matt and I have been crazy busy over the last several weeks since returning home from our honeymoon back in early June. We had the trip of a lifetime…I do plan to do a big blog post documenting some of our favorite memories and pictures from the trip, but at the rate that I seem to be getting things done on this blog, that might not happen for a little while! 🙂
For our honeymoon we took a 9 night cruise through the Mediterranean; Italy, Greece and one stop in Turkey. We also had a couple of days to spend on either side of the cruise in Italy (Florence before the cruise, Rome after the cruise), and you guys….it was sheer bliss. It’s been a long, long, long time since I took such a nice, long vacation and I couldn’t believe the clarity and the change in my outlook after some significant time away from work. Swoon. Take me back!
Around the house I’ve been just itching with the home renovation / home improvement bug. A couple of projects that I’m eyeing include: cleaning up / majorly refreshing our basement, having our entire house painted, changing out the ugly gold doorknobs throughout the house and potentially cleaning up / refreshing our office. If only there was unlimited time in a week!
In other news, since my last post, I’ve taken another Les Mills training for my fourth discipline! You are looking at a brand new CXWORX instructor in training (or at least the words of one on-screen!). CXWORX is the Les Mills 30 minute functional core training program….and god damn it’s hard. CX has been a real challenge for me, a self-confessed “cardio junkie”, but I’m proud of the progress I’ve made so far in the program. I’m actually filming my second take of my assessment video tonight…here’s hoping that this one is the winner!
SO….after much digress….back to our 30 Day Writing Challenge (which at this stage has turned into the 30 Year Writing Challenge….ha).
