A blog about a 20-something's ultimate goal to find the balance between healthy living and living life to the fullest. Come join me on this adventure where I share my struggles to achieve peace within. Here you will also find my current obsessions, recipes, and my travel adventures.
I had a Skype session with my mom this morning where she showed off her latest knitting project.
My mother is a fantastic knitter and sadly, the only thing I know how to knit is a scarf. She told me she hopes that she has grand-daughters one day that she can pass along all her skills, tools and books. I asked her why she can't just teach her current daughters!?
My boyfriend joked, "You have to start young. You're too old now to learn."
Everyone in the family has my mom's knitted sweaters (even my sister's dog is no exception.)
Look at her posing with what grandmama made for her last Christmas.
I remember in college after a particular heartbreak/humiliation. I called home every morning just to hear my mom's voice. A combination of her rambling about her day and Spongebob Squarepants got me through that particular bout of blues.
I didn't even know about the study at the time but reading the article now, I definitely believe in it.
I woke up really early this morning to do two loads of laundry, make breakfast for myself and go out for a run.
The chilly morning air was perfect.
I love looking at the layer of mist coming off of the pond.
I managed a 5.4 mile run in under 50 minutes. I could have gone for a few more miles but I'm going to aim to run again tomorrow morning.
