    The Perfect Run

    Since becoming a new mom I’ve found my time seems to escape me, or in other terms my time is just very much not my own anymore. I’m constantly focusing on everything that needs to be done, and the manner, time and circumstances it has to be done in for the picture in my head to work out the way I want it to.

    The Mother of all Surprises: Running for 2

    I love Surprises! I love the happy feeling of something that happens unexpectedly! As adults be rarely get surprised anymore, we mostly lose that as we grow up- and I never want to lose that, little did I know that 2017 would hold for me the surprise of my LIFE! I was sitting at my desk one Thursday morning at work, I can’t exactly remember what I was doing at the time, but I suddenly realized that I had to make my monthly trip to the pharmacy. And it was like a light went on. I don’t know why I bought a pregnancy test that day, but something told me…
