This was the first weekend I had back to myself after, you know, overcommitting. Friday after work, we camped for a night then early Saturday morning (like 4am) I made my way from Bartlett lake all the way down to Tempe. For those of you who aren’t fellow Scottsdale Survivors, thats about 2 hours and a dirt road or two. Worth it though, because my Dad and brother were running the Ironman and I wouldn’t miss that for the world. It was so nice to have them in town the last week. My Mom has such an eye for holiday decor and helped me turn this place into a winter wonderland. And today, Crunch and I had dog school, and we cooked for the week!
Recently, I have been SUCH a stress ball, and this weekend was the perfect antidote to that. I was reminded of what amazing friends and families we have. Friday night was such an outpouring of love from our friends, offering their time, ears and sharing a laugh with us. That coupled with the dinners and laughs we shared with my family this week, filled up my cup. I feel like the last few months have been a discovery of my balance. It took a little too much and a little too little to find out what my happy medium looks like.

What better timing than Thanksgiving week to finally have my shit together for the year. I am so looking forward to the next few months of family, friends, snowboarding, too many cocktails, and all the laughs.
