Sunny Sundays

The Chapel was quite a hike.
Straight up.
Through beautiful olive trees, green grass mountains
nothing but blue skies.
Today we ventured to Chapel Hill in Shandon.
I am not really sure how I have never been there before...
It was absolutely amazing.

The breezes smelled of wildflowers.
The church bells sang.
The sunny sun was shining oh so bright.

Sweat Sessions

Interval running on the treadmill really sucks. Running really sucks period. I have my first wedding dress fitting in T-minus 6 weeks.....YIKES. I am only up a few pounds from when I bought my dress but still.... I want to look my best. So I get SELF magazine every month in the mail, hopelessly browse through it and find a workout plan. I stick to it for ummmm about two days and then give it the finger. Welp, this time I do not have the option to give it the finger. I am going to stick too it. I know I wont' see a huge number change on the scale and I am obsessed with the number but if my clothes start fitting better I guess that means it's working.

My shins hurt. My claves hurt. My abs hurt. My arms hurt. Why didn't anyone tell me running would make everything hurt? But, when it is all said and done, I feel like a million bucks. Besides everything hurting. Go me.

And I just realized how naughty my title sounds.

Walk in the park

Unconditional love.
She is always excited to see us, wagggggging her tail.
She doesn't know what mad or disappointing is.
Life is just a walk in the park. Literally.
If only we could all live this way.
Always wagging when our significant other walks through the door.
Make them feel your unconditional love today.
It will make you feel good too.
Make their life a walk in the park.

These last few months, basically all of 2010, has been in a valley. Or at least that is what it feels like. I received an apology recently that was quite surprising and I was expecting it to bring more relief that it did. Expectations. Expectations take so much out of life. Of course there are expectations that come with certain aspects of a relationship or friendship but when they go beyond are usually going to be let down. Being let down isn't such a bad thing. I think it teaches us to stop wanting wanting wanting. And to just let life take the lead. I am always trying to plan and make the situation go the way I want it. Ok ok, control. I hate that word and I hate being associated with it but its true. I give.

My goal for today, the rest of this week, is to just let go of the expectations I have of people. Friends, family, people I don't even know. Revel in the things that really matter. My life is pretty great. I am going to start by dropping off food at the Prado Day Center. I need a little give in my life :)

Have a good day everyone!
