Trying to Catch Up

I feel so far behind I am not even sure where to start.

Seattle (Olympia) was amazing and everything I hoped it would be. All caution (except for the Chipotle burrito I shared with my mom and the 2 mornings I had oatmeal) was thrown to the wind in regards to food. Hello, rhubarb crisp AND pie, fresh strawberry shortcake, fresh raspberries, smores!, and loads more I can't remember. I did however exercise 5 times while I was there. Nothing crazy like more normal gym routines, but the fact that I exercised is accomplishment enough. I ran over 3 miles on 4 days and walked the 3 miles one of the other days. There is a 3+ mile loop around where I was staying so it was easy just to run that. I ran it in about 27 minutes.

The wedding was on Saturday, the hottest day of course during my entire trip. The dress fit! I think the zipper and cut of the dress just made it tricky to zip because another bridesmaid had a problem as well. The wedding was wonderful.

I am so torn between Nashville and Seattle and my job and my friends. How can I live in both places?? I seriously need to figure some things out.

It's not hard to run, when this is your view for part of the run:

My cousin Diane's daughter Aurora. She is super sweet and I threatened to take her home with me. I have a standing invitation to Portland to visit. I need to save up some vacation days!

My cousin Nicole and I at the Capitol. I can't wait to see the professional pictures. I am not crazy about my smile in this pic, but you get a better idea of the dress.

Crazy busy week. Bruce Springsteen concert Thursday night and I am heading to the ATL to see Sister Hazel and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra at Chastain on Saturday!
