One year ago this week, we moved from a place we loved for my husbands work, and moved into our newly built home in south Mississippi. Where has this year gone? I am not going to lie, where we now live still doesn’t feel like “home” (as in the city not the house.) We have encountered a few pretty serious personal struggles since moving, and it’s one of those situations I would love to leave in the past.
One year ago this week, we ran out first race in our new hometown, the St. Patrick’s Day 5k. It was fun to run somewhere new, but it was sad not to recognize anyone in the crowd like I did at our “old” local races.
One year ago this week, I was honored to be on the cover of New Orleans FIT magazine. It had been in the works since the end of December, and it was so cool to finally see.
One year ago this month, I begged you, my readers, not to “leave me” as I transitioned in my move and had no internet for many many days in the new house.
-Now we are looking at some personal changes in our little family’s path.
-Now we are about to run the same 5k a year later, hopefully with a faster time.
-Now I am honored to be a nominee for a Fitterati by Fitness magazine (please vote!)
-Now my readership has grown by over 30% in one year and I still love sharing my life with you guys.
If you have been reading RWS for awhile you know how much I love looking back on my life and seeing growth and change. Sometimes it’s small monthly things, and sometimes things have totally not turned out how I “planned.”
Let’s just say life doesn’t always turn out the way you plan is a big understatement. Sometimes in a negative way, but sometimes in an amazingly great positive way. Not gonna lie, 2011 was tough. I don’t talk about all of it on the blog for several reasons, respecting other people’s privacy being a big one…but so far 2012 has turned out to be kind of amazing. I really hope this trend continues of God’s amazing blessings, and I really hope I am able to share very very soon exactly what I am talking about.
QOTD: Are you doing what you thought you would be doing a year ago?
