365

I went out of town with my love for the weekend.

I got dressed up. Tried escargot at dinner (like a seafood tasting mushroom). Bought books and yarn and lipstick. Took a nap.

I spent it laughing and joking and dream sharing with my partner.

It was pretty much perfect.

Tomorrow I turn 35. I have a whole list of things I want to do. But I’ve decided to slow down.

And focus on just one.

I know that I’ll still take on other projects and get overwhelmed and want to throw everything away. But this year – one thing is going to be constant.

Do you know Jules? I’m just going to put it out there and say I love this woman. I’ve never met her in real life but it’s kind of my goal (if she doesn’t put a restraining order out on me first). She’s pretty much the most awesome person I’ve met in blog world. She reads – a lot. She has this awesome William Morris Project. She does weekly recaps of happy things. I just love her and want to copycat her all the time which brings me to my point. This last year she decided to do a 365 Body, Mind, Spirit challenge. I usually say “bah” to the whole 365 thing BUT it’s Jules and I love her and always want to copy her. So I’m going to, at least partly.

All that to say:

For 365 days, I will walk/run/jog. It might be a mile – it might be ten (probably not ten), but I will lace up my shoes and move. One caveat, Jules walks outside every day. She also lives in California. I do not. When it’s below zero, I’m lacing up my shoes and heading to my nearest treadmill. In the interest of honesty, I want you to know that.

Happy Monday!! What are you looking forward to this week?

  • Ha! I adore Jules too! I already know I'll fail at a 365 day plan, but every time I think about skipping the gym I think, "dude, Jules is walking EVERY DAY. I can go to the gym." Best of luck with your efforts 🙂
