professional runner girl

once upon a time there was a happy little girl,
who loved to run.
not to stay in shape, but to stay sane
because while everyone was asking her questions she didn't have the answers to
the silence of the wooded trails brought her back to reality every time.
she didn't know what she wanted to be when she grew up
nor did she know where she wanted to work
or how much she was going to make for that matter,
but the reality is - none of it really matters,
unless you're happy, doing what you love.
and i do love to run.

i guess what im getting at is,
im dropping out of school to become a full time runner.
just kidding mom.

if you could have a full time job doing anything you wanted to do, what would you be doing?

it's okay to ...

order an extra ten dozen shirts for everyone and anyone, just because you designed them yourself

it's okay to ignore the serving size of only three dark chocolate dipped pretzels. the bag is small as is!

it's okay to volunteer to pick up trash first thing in the morning ... but not really want to do it

it's okay to leave the soccer game early to go home and watch Hocus Pocus

it's okay if you have over fifty bottles of nail polish but only use 1

it's okay if you bought a pair of shoes because they are beautiful but can not walk in them. shoeicide

it's okay to hyperventilate after booking a flight to Spain and realize there is no backing out for studying abroad and venturing to another country!

it's okay.
pinky promise.

Life is Beautiful. Notice it.

Sometimes you need to just slow down and enjoy what you have, right in front of you, right now.

Enjoying life, soaking up fall, embracing every second it.
"Appreciation is a wonderful thing, it makes what is excellent in others, belong to us as well."

Fall Foliage

I adore fall.
The crunch of the leaves under your new caramel leather boots.
The thick knitted scarf wrapped around your neck to keep you warm, along with the pumpkin spice coffee in your hand.
The fact that everything everywhere offers pumpkin anything from coffee to lattes to muffins and bagels and even pumpkin nut butters!
Running through colorful trails throughout Pittsburgh.
Did I mention pumpkin everything?

Here are some of my favorites that will be getting me through this October:
[I just found this peanut butter at Trader Joe's yesterday and it is AMAZING, not only does it taste better than the normal peanut butter, but it is half the calories and 85% less fat! ... you know what that means...some for my bagel, and an extra spoon for me!]
 My mom sent me a goody box from home.... of course she sent oreos, homemade shmo-made
Maxi skirts <3
Best halloween decor ever! miss you mama!

Favorite part about fall?
Any fall favorites I am missing??
