The end of one year and the beginning of another is also exciting to me.  It’s exciting to look back over the last 365 days and look ahead at the next. In looking back over my blog, it’s crazy ridiculous to consider how its grown….and with it how I’ve grown, too.  My ‘lil ole blog has just recently hit over 60,500 views since it’s inception in January 2011….and from only a few hundred views each month to now a few thousand.

Here are a few of my favorite posts and pictures from 2012.


We started 2012 with a run and I hope to start 2013 off the same way!

How will you start your New Year?

I got all dressed up so my hubby could take some bio pictures for me.

  1. I recently stumbled upon your blog, am I am so happy I did. It is just what I was hoping to find. It is refreshing to read about a forty something, professional women, mother and wife who enjoys running, exercise and generally eating healthy. The fact that you are Christian and post about your faith is a wonderful bonus. I have enjoyed catching up on old posts and look forward to a few each day. Please keep blogging as there are some of us who can identify so much with you. You are a blessing and answer to prayer…

    • Sandy, I’m so glad you found my blog and thank you so much for your sweet comment. You have encouraged me more than you know and I genuinely appreciate it. You have also been a blessing and an answer to prayer…… 😉
