Sibling Love

I love everything about this picture. You can’t not smile when looking at those two.


Life is good.

Running Music

In our efforts to get back into shape, Chris and I started running again. Prior to me getting pregnant with Toby, we were both running regularly, and did several races–both 5 & 10ks. After I got pregnant, I had intentions of sticking with running for as long as I could, but I was so sick that it didn’t last very long. Chris ran off & on, but suffered a leg injury that had been keeping him from running as much as he wanted.

We registered for the Peachtree Road Race for this July 4th again and got picked to do it (through a lottery system). We knew we had to get our act together & start running more regularly.

We bought a double jogging stroller and here we are.

Our kids love it. Toby sleeps most runs & Elodie chats with Chris. He’s the one that pushes them when we run, and he’s still faster than me!

Today as I was running, I thought I’d share my running playlist in case you need some inspiration to get out, enjoy the beautiful weather, & burn some calories.

Things I Never Blogged About: Christmas 2013

Playing catch up to share memories I never blogged about.. here’s Christmas 2013.

We celebrated Christmas a few days early at home with my family, and then packed up our kids and headed north for Christmas. It takes about 16 hours with two kids between eating, potty breaks, and etc. Our kids were great travelers on the trip up. Everyone was feeling sick on the way home, so that trip was pretty miserable.

We had a great time spending Christmas  up north. Chris’s family always goes all out for Christmas and we leave feeling so blessed. I’m so glad I married into such a wonderful family. My babies are lucky and get to grow up with a pretty great family–on both sides. We loved spending time with family, playing in the snow, and teaching Toby to roll over, among many other things.

Here are some scenes from our trip up north.
