Leaving on a jet plane

Does anyone else adore John Denver??

So, I'm not exactly leaving on a jet plane, just leaving...temporarily.
Saying goodbye to the life I know for a little bit. This weekend I'll be going to Tennessee for awhile. Just me. If life had a reset button, that's what I would call this. 

I'll write more about it when I'm able to put it all into words a little better.

So far this week I've been able to spend time with some amazing friends.

Melissa and I have been friends for over 20 years! She was my very first friend when my family moved to KY.  We have been through everything together, and she still loves me! :)
Being silly. Yes, that is what you think it is.
 My precious friend, Kat. She just recently moved to my town, and we met through our husband's, who work together. This girl. I could sit and talk to her for hours and hours. Love her to pieces.
We're going to start running together soon. I have to convert all my friends, ya know!

Yoga pants and coffee. Yes!

I even got to love on her adorable, squishy love bug. I just wanted to keep him!

I am so blessed!!
I will miss my friends and family like crazy, but I know this will be good for me. It's just what I need.

Because of my knee pain, I've been taking some time off from running. I have just been walking on my treadmill. Let me tell you, it is SO hard to walk! I have to really concentrate and not let myself start running.
 Monday I will try running again. I know TN has some gorgeous trails and parks, I can't wait to go exploring.

Anyone in TN want to run with me?



  1. A reset sounds so lovely. I hope you enjoy finding new places to run. Take care and I hope that you find the peace you seek

  2. Kudos for taking care of yourself! I find it really hard to walk on the treadmill too but I love walking outside. Sometimes even during runs I think I'd rather be walking just so I could take my time and soak it all in....and maybe because it's a tad easier than running sometimes ;) Enjoy

  3. I hope you enjoy your trip. What part of Tennessee? Looks like you and Melissa had a great time! :) I hope your knee is feeling better.

  4. yayy :) have fun girlfriend! sounds like you need the time.

  5. If I was in TN right now, I would happily walk with you, down to the corner for a cup of joe.

    1. I'm sure I could talk you into going for a little run with me! And then a cuppa joe. :)

  6. John Denver is awesome. Have a great weekend in Tennessee!!

  7. Hope your time-out brings exactly what you need. Enjoy your reset!

  8. Hope you are OK with your trip to Tennessee...
    What part of TN are you going to? My step daughter is down there & always looking for a running partner :) & you can love on my grandbabies for me :) She's in Nashville - seriously, let me know if you are around that area.
    Praying for your time away....
    PS - my brother was OBSESSED with John Denver & was so depressed when the plane crash happened

  9. Awe lady. I hope you're doing okay. Resets can be good. Thinking without the clutter of the people and places you're thinking about can be very cleansing. I hope you find some answers. And I hope Monday's attempt to run goes well!

  10. Have a great trip! I hope that the time off allows you to heal and you can start back up in some beautiful scenery in TN. I have only been down around Knoxville and the Smokey's, but yes they do have a beautiful state to run in!!!!

  11. Hope TN is just what you need girl. Thinking of you.

  12. Oh have a great time out! I hope you feel better! A break is underrated! I love John Denver!

    1. Thanks girl, I totally agree! John Denver is just amazing.
