After work, the hubby, pup and I packed up our picnic basket (most awesomest wedding gift ever) with dinner and headed over to the Virginia Tech Horticulture Garden. We ordered sushi to go and enjoyed a peaceful picnic to the sound of crickets and flowing water. Okay, and kids running around on a scavenger hunt, lol. It was nice to eat and not rush, to watch the sun as it began to set and then stroll around campus to enjoy the evening air. Simple and PERFECT.
Each year the hubby asks me what my "goals" are for the up and coming year. I have goals, dreams, ideas... I post them here pretty often. Those are things I do and are part of who I am, but I am learning they do not define me. I love my athletic goals, my career, this blog, all things running, etc. Yet above all, the pursuit of health and happiness continues to be my top priority in whatever shape or form that may come. I am blessed to have a family that cares for me and supports me, to be healthy, to be able to afford good food... to live in a town that I LOVE. Goals are good to have, birthday gifts are fun, but at the end of the day, all I need is everything I already have.
Cheers to another birthday, another year of striving towards continued health and happiness, taking one day at a time and cherishing each moment.
