Found: One Blogger

I did not drop off the face of the earth after last week's triathlon . . . but I did fall out of the blogosphere's orbit. It's been a crazy week!

I turned 27, and celebrated the day by waking up to the sweetest series of notes I've ever received from my wonderful husband . . .

. . . I finished my first-ever triathlon in 1:34:53 (16:28 for the 500 meter swim, 51:11 for the 12.8 mile bike, 27:14 for the 5K run) . . .

. . . and I began my first week of the new job of elementary teaching and working with families as the school year opened up on Monday. That's largely why I haven't blogged. I absolutely love this job, but it's left me exhausted at the end of every day. I'll get into more of a routine in the coming weeks, though, and make my presence known around the web once more.


  1. Happy Belated Birthday and Congratulations on your Triathlon....a big accomplishment!

    That is great! Loving your job is so very important! :) Happy belated Birthday!

  3. Big sigh...After a whole summer of telling myself Do Not Forget Beth's Birthday...It somehow passed me by : I'm so sorry, dear. I hope it was fabulous and the year to come even more so! I miss you tons.
