Jennifer Blake: Hello, September.

Hello, September.

September 1, 2015

Oh my, I cannot believe how long of a break I took from blogging, it was completely unintentional but I have to say it was totally worth it. Summer just went by in the blink of an eye and I am soaking up every last second of it. So much has happened since the last time I actually blogged regularly (like last February??) and I am excited to be back in this little space, sharing my story. 

So where are we now? We are in our new apartment (1 month today!), still in NH and still both working our butts off full time in the field we went to school for. I remember sitting in grad school always wishing it to be over so I could start working and now that I have been fully employed for just over 6 months, I want nothing more then to be back in class. Funny how that works.

If you remember I was commuting anywhere from one hour to an hour and a half from my moms house while we lived with her and doing that commute in the winter. It was exhausting. Now that we are back towards the seacoast our commutes are pretty manageable, we found a middle ground and we both have about a 40 minute commute on a good day.

I have jumped back on the band wagon from my winter hiatus of running and I am training for reach the beach in September, as well as a half marathon in the white mountains in October. I have a trend of building up a solid mileage base spring-fall and then losing it in the winter, but not this time, I am motivated to be an all year round runner, even if that means running on a treadmill this winter.

We have a vacation planned at the end of September to Minnesota and Portland, Oregon. We are pretty excited to escape for a bit and explore two totally new places. We will also be celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary! Where does the time go, seriously.

Other then settling into our new place and our new commutes not too much else is new. I have so much new content and so many stories to share, so keep coming back, I promise I am here to stay.
