After graduating college and landing my dream job, daily goals became a thing of the past. Realizing I needed something to strive for on a daily basis, I decided to become a runner. Inspired by BenDoesLife, this blog was started as a way to hold myself accountable for sticking to my healthy lifestyle. My journey to a marathon starts here and now. Rock on!

Forever, THIS.

Who’s coming with me?

This was taken on the ferry back to Anacortes, on which, fun fact, Macklemore was also traveling. He walked by me and Bons on the pier before we hopped on the boat, and I almost said hi but knew he probably wouldn’t remember me (and he was with his fam, not being bothered by anyone, so I thought it best to allow him his quiet time).

I met him several years ago, before he made it big, at a hip hop show where Hubs’s band was the only rock act on the bill. We shot the shiz at the bar while the boys set up their gear. If he’s anything now like he was back then, he’s a rad dude.

Yay for random Doozer facts!

Success.

There are worse ways to spend an afternoon on an island.

A few snapshots of Doozer’s day thusfar. You’re welcome.

A ridiculously gorgeous hydrangea that I may or may not have* indefinitely borrowed from a bush outside my old apartment; The view looking directly skyward inside my favorite coffee shop ever; The view looking directly outward from the ferry on which I’m currently traveling; The view looking directly at mah face; My new spid friend Cornelius who made residence in my rental car this morning (you can’t tell from the photo, but he’s insanely bright yellow and super good at checkers).

Happy Thursday, rockstars! It’s a great day to be alive.

Closed the show to a fantastic crowd this past Sunday! I’m sad it’s over, but so grateful for the experience. It was a lovely show, and I got to work with some very talented folks. Also, like my age makeup? Did it myself.

Happy Tuesday, rockstars! Tomorrow I start the journey to Aly’s wedding weekend on Orcas Island…updates and photos as I go.

It’s gonna rock.

Happy Wednesday from my accidental garden. 

I love it when God leaves me unexpected, pretty little presents. Totally rock solid awesome.

My “I’m so busy I’m delirious” face…and my new mustache coffee mug. Fun fact: The mustache is used to actually keep coffee off of legit facial hair…but I bought it for funsies.

Mustachioed men aren’t the only peeps who can have cool beverage containers. Nailed it.

Happy Thursday, rockstars! Thank you so much to those of you who’ve stuck around even though I’ve been too busy to post much over the last month…I’ll be back and posting running pictures/updates soon. After all, I have a half marathon coming up in September!

Love your faces. Each and every one of them.
