Updates and Follow Friday!

So after a crazy, hectic, and emotional week I have finally gained the strength to update you all on my life happenings. As you probably noticed sadly #IcelandPlanks did not take place and we came back to the states ofter only 12 hours abroad. Long story short we did not have the best initial experience in Iceland and there was a death in my spouse's family. We came to a consensus that the time we had planned to be away from family was only best spent with those we love. Since moving to Illinois in August 2012 (leaving all friends and family behind in Texas) it has been a tough adjustment which makes seeing family that much more special. Life is short and being with those who mean the most to us outweighed being thousands of miles away. We will still travel abroad in the future (looking forward to our summer in Europe in 2016) but right now we are soaking up the Texas sun and massive amounts of Mexican food.

I want to thank all of you for your kind words and positive thoughts as we processed over 48 hours of travel and losing someone we love. I am so grateful for such a loving community of amazing souls.

Short and sweet posts can only be ended by sending love to some of my fellow bloggers. Be sure to check out these amazing and inspirational people!









Hope everyone has amazing Friday! 

Happy Running!
