First Day of Spring!

Here's to the first day of Spring 2014!

So happy the weather is getting warmer, the snow is melting, and I'm starting to see the sunshine again. This winter has been snowy and cold enough and I'm so thankful that it's coming to an end. Plus that means only about 9 weeks of school left...yay! :)


Back into Shape

Do you ever go through a phase where you're the laziest person ever? Yes? Ok good because I didn't want to be the only one. If you said no then props to you...

So I play volleyball only for the fall season which is about August-October because playing for other teams in the spring and winter in my area is crazy expensive. When I play during the fall, it's obviously not a very long time but during that time I get to hang out with my best friends, get fit, and play a sport I love. Once the season is over everything just kind of goes downhill. (I'm going to be super sad because it's my senior year next year and my last season playing high school volleyball)

You might have recalled when I made a 'workout plan' for myself and called it the "August Challenge" last summer. That went surprisingly well for me and I did post about it and got really awesome and supportive feedback so thank you to everyone. (Since then I've taken that post down for now, but it might go back up later)

Well now I'm getting back into shape since I was pretty lazy and ate more food than I probably should have over the winter. The snow is finally melting and the snowbanks that were taller than me, I can finally see over again. :) So hopefully I can start running again very soon.

This time though...My mom is doing it with me! So I'm super excited about that and we've already completed our first week of getting back into shape. It's just going to be a 30 day workout and we hope that we'll see a difference by Easter which is April 20th this year.

I've been doing my "research" and I'm glad my mom and I are in this together. :)

Wordless Wednesday

March 7, 2014

It's the...

It's the flights to L.A. The walks in the park. The beach volleyball in summer. The tea in Paris. It's the full moon on a dark night. The long walks around the neighborhood. The deep conversations with your best friend. It's the wind in your hair while you swing. The leaves in fall. The hand-written letters. The sweet poems you read. It's the test you ace. The coffee you drink everyday. The picture you take. It's the memories you make. The TV shows you watch. The snow in winter. The food in Italy. The cards you read. It's the gifts you receive. The perfectly made bed. The sun coming through the window. The kids you love to teach. The rain in spring. It's that one time thing. The sleepless nights. The dreams you love. The clouds from an airplane. It's the trips to Spain. The songs you sing. The celebrity crush you have. The dresses you twirl in. The flowers you smell. It's the pictures you paint. The stars you look at. The candy you eat. The soft pillows you sleep on. It's the family moments. The embarassing times. The words you say. The sand on a beach. It's the highschool year book notes. The emojis in texts. The people you talk to. The homework you don't complete. The bad things. It's the positivity in life.

Annndd it's March

Hey all you crazy blog followers! I feel so sad to have abandoned my little space of the internet for so long but I have quite enjoyed my absence and also needed a little break to focus more on life. A lot has happened in the past month and I'm so excited to get back to journaling it all right here again!

I've already got some posts in drafts and thoughts and words running through my head. So to get back into the swing of things, I thought I'd do an instagram catch up! I haven't done one since Christmas time and when I was looking back at the old posts I was just kind of realizing that it is officially MARCH 2014. What!?

Time goes by crazy fast. So fast that it's ridiculous that things, and life, and worries, and people can all change in this amount of time.
