Good Bye July!

July was a good month. An insanely busy month, but a good one. I'm in a list-making mood today, so here are the highlights:
  1. I learned how to steer a canoe by myself. You try that.
  2. I got to go to the beach with my families!
  3. I got to go to the mountains with my families and Derek :)
  4. My oldest niece turned 7. Last year, she cried when she turned 6 because she didn't "want to get old" - ughs. No such problem this year.
  5. I turned 27... ughs... Definitely feeling my niece's problem from last year.
  6. I ran 57.75 miles (total for the month)!!
  7. My research paper was accepted to be presented at the SC/MLA Annual Conference in October
  8. I guess I rescued a kitten? I didn't keep it, but I took care of it for a while.
  9. I enjoyed telling folks that Derek and I have been dating for four years now. I know we're married, but that doesn't mean we're not dating still :)


  1. Happy birthday and great running total in this heat! Keep it up!

  2. I like #9 :) Well all of them are great, but that one is the best!
