Even when no one is listening…

Here comes July!!

Oh, July. Warm days. Bonfires. Lightening bugs. Fireworks, Cook outs. Races galore. Water fights. Road trips. Adventure around every corner!! Yes, this month is going to be one for the record books.

June is not to be neglected. The past month was a great transition month. I felt as though the past six months of change solidified themselves with the passing of June and coming of July. I decided to celebrate becoming a better me by chopping off all my hair. No worries, all those locks are being donated to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients.

Bold new look? Check. Awesome road trip? Hell ya!

This past weekend, Amara and I headed to Tennessee for celebratory road trip. Each of us celebrating different milestones by driving to Nashville to see “Bad Books” on her 20th birthday. Hope you’re ready for an explosion of photographs…

On the road. Happy to be leaving Indiana for a bit.

What a life changing adventure! In 72 hours we made so many new connections. I truly feel like I came home a different woman. So watch out world. Amara, thank you for all the work you put into planning this trip. I love you girl! And am super blessed to have shared this experience with you.

In other news…this month was the kick start of my half- marathon training schedule. Yesterday, my best friend/cousin Victoria came down to see me for a few hours. We decided to go for a 3 mile run around town and through the trails in the park. This was her first time running outside and with a partner. Perfect weather for it too!

Those 3 miles were worth it in the end. Enjoying that wonderful feeling of accomplished soreness.

So folks, that’s been my transition into Summer. Tonight Ben and I are going to the fireworks here in Columbia City and running in the morning. And then there’s a crazy jam packed week of celebration to follow. Stay posted 🙂
