It’s been awhile.

I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since I’ve written a blog! Needless to say, a lot has happened over the past six-months. 4-birthdays, a summer vacation, a new school year, wonderful visits from family, and that doesn’t even begin to cover it all!

BUT. I can honestly say I’m the happiest and most content I’ve been in a long time, on a personal level. I’ve taken a lot of time to focus on me, and my goals. I’ve been in the gym 5-days-a-week, and I feel stronger and more confident than I have since I can remember.  I run an 8-minute mile and lift weights daily. ((I have my soccer legs back, you guys!)) I’ve been focusing on fitness, rather than weight loss, and the difference is amazing. I just feel better. I’m working out for me, and that change in mindset has done wonders.

And I’ve also gotten very close with some amazing, genuine, and fun people, whom I absolutely love having in my life. We’ve had many fun times that include great conversation, great food, and an abundance of wine. =)

And the kiddos are getting so big! McKenzie turned 7 and Bennett turned 2 in August. McKenzie is doing very well in school, and is currently loving soccer. She even scored the first goal of the season! And Bennett—let’s just say he’s a little handful! He’s so strong-willed and knows exactly what he wants. But they have great fun together, and they’re beginning to play really well. It’s fun to see! ♥

Anyway, I’ll be better about blogging, I swear!
