Happy New Year to my few devoted readers 🙂 New Year’s is particularly special to me as it is the day that Stephen and I had our first kiss and started the relationship I have with my future husband. You can see in the above picture the recreations of our midnight kisses from 2007 and this year. It’s interesting to see how we’ve changed physically (my hair was so long!) as well as to think of how much deeper our relationship has become and how much more I love him each and every day. We’ll be going out to Cheesecake Factory tonight for dinner like we did last year 🙂 I love him so much. And you know the best part?
WE GET MARRIED THIS YEAR!!!
That’s pretty much my new favorite phrase now that it’s 2010.
We rang in the New Year with Sandi & Chris, Nikki & Aaron, and Carmen over at the Ady/Glass Compound. We played Wii Sports Resort and Progressive Rummy, as well as enjoying some Asti and Bean Dip (The Truth- because chips just can’t handle it).
Despite the fact that I have still been unable to kick this cough I’ve had since right before Christmas, I went for a run today. It was just one of those things where I just had to start the new year off right. So, I went and ran a couple miles around my neighborhood. It felt good. It felt right. I just had to do it. I’ve taken too much time off for this cold and I just can’t keep being sedentary. If I do, it increases the chances that running won’t stick. And it has to stick. I’ve quit after 3 months before and I refuse to do it again. I don’t do New Year’s resolutions, but if I did, this would probably be it.
So, beginning 2010, here are my totals:
Since 4.10.09: 173.23 miles
Since 10.20.09: 78.79 miles
Here’s to a year full of love, laughter, running, and a new adventure for Stephen and I 🙂
