hot! hot! hot!

With temps all across the country in the red danger zones, outside events have been moved or missed in my neck of the woods. I decided to rest my legs after running 5 miles on the beach in Charleston the weekend before so I only ran early Saturday morning. I decided that I would do a quick 4 mile run and didn't bring water bottle with me. Wrong, even at 8 am. It wasn't bad once I turned back for the run home as I was into the wind but I was already hurting from the run out. I don't like to complain about weather but this is bad.

The weekend trip to Charleston was awesome and exactly what the beautiful angel wife and I needed. We had a blast together as well as with our friends who live there and are the best for letting us stay with them. We took them to dinner at a new place they wanted to try 17 North, absolutely amazing with a very relaxed atmosphere, local ingredients, and the most amazing food ever. Worth a trip in itself. The next day was a walk on the Ravenel bridge which for the first time for me a little rough, probably from the drinking the night before. Was great time visiting Charleston and love spending time with the wife.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.

mountain time

Last week was spent up in the NC mountains at the parents house and we all absolutely loved it. We spent all of our time relaxing and enjoying ourselves together, can't wait for more. The trip did have a small visit to urgent care after the baby angel jumped face first into a rocking chair base. She is out of control almost all the time but such a wonderful angel at the same time and thankfully she was fine and needed no medical assistance. We all went on plenty of dog walks around the mountain with 3 little dogs needing to do their business. I went for a nice run up the mountain and not sure how someone could live up at the top. I really enjoyed the run and look forward to many more there. We spent many evenings on the deck and celebrated the 4th of July in Waynesville and with sparklers on the deck. Was a great time. I stayed up way to late every night there and carried that with me home so I have been extra tired lately.

Looking forward to tomorrow as the beautiful angel wife and I celebrate 10 wonderful years married. We are going to Charleston this weekend as our yearly getaway and are looking forward to it. So lucky to have all that we have in our life and be happy together all these years.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.
