Ok, so I hate “selfies” with a passion, but today requires one:
New glasses!!! I wasn’t going to just post a picture of the specs themselves. What good would that do?
I don’t wear them everyday, and don’t wear contacts, but they are good for night driving, watching movies, and reading the computer screen. Again, not an earth shattering “new”, but a new none the less 🙂 Always celebrate an update!
Last night, my wonderful friend Beth and I went for a 3 mile run, and it was awful! I am still just struggling with my asthma! It feels like I am running underwater or something and just cannot get my breath. I have been running for nearly 9 years and yet lately I have felt like this is the first time I have laced up sneakers to hit the pavement. I have a half marathon in 2 weeks that I am just going to work my way through. Not planning on any PRs this time.
It was great to just have girl time though. Beth is one of the greatest people I will probably ever meet in my life. Smart, beautiful, will always tell it to you straight, but so kind and insightful. She is the kind of person I feel that I could take any problem to and get great advice, comfort, criticism if needed, but still leave feeling loved, supported, and encouraged.
Beth is actually one of my boyfriend’s best friends. When we first started dating, he talked about his two best friends, Paul and Beth, who are married, all of the time. I finally was able to meet them about 2 months after we started dating, and I couldn’t have imagined 2 better people. Down to earth, welcoming, fun, kind, I loved them instantly. I have always said that you can tell a lot about a person by their friends, and that night I think was when I fell officially in love with Paul (my Paul, not his best friend Paul). With best friends like that, what could be wrong with the guy?
Seeing him interact with these people who are basically his family (and their adorable 3 year-old son), made me see him in a different light and appreciate him on a deeper level, and now, I consider them like my family too.
I am so blessed to have the people around me that I do. I don’t know what I have done to deserve them, but I hope it always stays that way 🙂
Happy Hump Day! Hump responsibly….
