Almost two weeks ago Oliver slept through the night. That day I started working out again. It's been a long long time. I used to go in spurts, then one summer I got serious and started running and/or biking almost everyday. My goal was to run in a marathon or a triathlon. Unfortunately that year I was attacked while riding my bike on a local trail and I stopped almost completely for quite a while. (A post for another day.) By the time I decided to get back on the horse, I was pregnant with Henry and feeling awful. Then I had a newborn to take care of, then pregnant again...etc. The closest thing I've had to consistent workouts in the last few years has been walking with a friend daily to a coffee shop a mile away.
I'm excited to be back in the game and breaking a sweat for reasons other than carrying around a bowling ball in my belly. (Which is wonderful too, but I'm glad they are both on the outside now.) The game plan for now includes various Turbo Jam workouts during afternoon naps and some quick runs here and there until life becomes more consistent. (Will it ever?)
To new beginnings!

In my previous post about being "Busy Busy" I posted some photos of prints that I had made. Those are now for sale in my new Etsy shop called Print Lovely! I'm really happy to be creating again after a very long hiatus...since I took painting my Freshman year of college almost 10 years ago. I've done drawings and a painting here and there, but this feels different. It's more therapeutic now and needed and an outlet for me to do some thinking and some listening. It's fun to have the prints online because I really enjoy photographing them as well. My first few have been linocuts and I have some screen printing in the works.
