Unfortunately, I do not have a beautiful tan to show for my lack of posting recently. But, I am VERY well rested and ready to dive back into the blog world! Sometimes documenting your life on a day-to-day basis can be exhausting. But after a much-needed break, I am excited to be back!
Blogging is a dirty job!
A lot has happened over the past month. Taylor and I have a beautiful nephew who has captured our hearts. We are traveling back to the West Coast to see him again next weekend. (Being an aunt on the opposite coast is proving to be expensive!!!) But we are in-love and will stop at nothing to spend some quality time with our first nephew!
Aside from traveling to the West Coast, things around here have been the same. We have been spending our days in the apple orchard and spending our evenings cooking at home and enjoying our wood stove and couch.
Taylor and I recently celebrated our one year wedding anniversary! It has been so fun reflecting back over the year and appreciating everything we have created together. I would not change our life for a second!
Henry continues to amaze us. He has taken apple pruning very seriously and stops at nothing to make sure he is being helpful.
The winter around Massachusetts has been very strange. It hasn’t been that cold (which I like while I am pruning) but seems a little odd for this time of year. I am crossing my fingers it doesn’t hit us in March. I would rather have snow now, and sunshine then!
Another exciting event that is on the horizon is the Boston Marathon! I am running it this April and am very excited. If you remember, I qualified for the race last March in Napa Valley. Training has been going well, but I would be lying if I said I was in the best shape of my life. Running this winter has been a challenge, but I am always up for a good fight. Crossing my fingers I can qualify for the Boston 2013 race at the marathon. We will see!
And I’m pretty sure that sums it all up. Thanks to everyone who has continued to follow my blog. Every once in a while it’s nice to take an extended break, but I am so happy to have you all along for the ride.
I may have been away from the blog world, but I am always armed with a wooden spoon and apron. Hope your hungry!
