|My heart and joy|
|True Love :)|
|Noah's is on the high chair which didn't quite fit in the picture. :)|
|It's probably a good thing I can't eat any. :)|
Pink pancakes are also on the menu. (For the record, I do feed my kids a mostly healthy diet. We don't buy candy normally, but for holidays I think treats are fun).
I have always enjoyed Valentine's Day and celebrating love and the people I love in my life. I have often been described as a "mush" and as someone who wears her heart on her sleeve. I was thinking last night though about how long I went without loving myself or even taking much care of myself. My husband and my kids are still my priority, but I have a found a balance. Through running I have found love and respect for myself and my body. I have discovered and nurtured my own personal dreams and goals. I have found a passion, and a fire within myself. I found a way to care for myself, and as a result, to have more of myself to give to my husband, kids, and loved ones. I am stronger, happier, calmer, more patient, more satisfied, more confident, more energetic....more ME.
Running is the love I give to myself.
PureFlow's and enjoy some easy miles this morning before breakfast with the kids. Perfect start to a lovely day. :)
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you all are able to celebrate the people you love in your life, and remember it is important to love yourself as well.
And thanks for all the feedback and input on what spring marathon to choose. I think we have made a decision and will let you know in a day or two once everything is set.
