(In honor of my new favorite blog):
Dear Mr. Martin, thanks for looking out for me & the lil guy. While you're slaving your arse off working a real job, we're lounging in our pjs with no make up on (well, me, not the lil guy of course). You're a stud. Dear January, will you make up your mind? 30 degrees and snow / sleet tomorrow and 68 degrees next week. Just dump this winter business and bring us a spring! Dear trash truck, today is trash pick up day...where are you? Dear 'Mos, thanks for the continual smiles, for sleeping 7.5 hours last night, and for being a stud like ya daddy. Dear Mikey, I can wait for our road trip this weekend! Maybe we'll find snow, antique shops, DDP & dessert (it's not technically a cheat if we're not in the state), a new car, good conversation & a day just the 2 of us?!
Love you bigger than the sky!

Quit holding your breath. We aren't quitting our jobs again to pack our belongings into a backpack for months on end. (: Our next Great Adventure is the Palmetto 200 in April! We've assembled an Ultra Team of 6 runners to complete the task of running from Cayce, SC to Charleston, SC. That means that each person on our team will be running about 33 miles each over the course of about 2 days. Our team members include me & Mike, Brock, Mel, Ben Renfrow and Zack Joiner. Stay tuned as we're training and getting ready!

On Saturday, December 29 we celebrated Mel's birthday with a birthday breakfast a local staple, The Coach House in Simpsonville before celebrating Christmas with some (more) of Mike's family. We saved our cake from breakfast (yes, breakfast) and shared it for dessert at lunch along with key lime pie and chocolate chip cookies. Thanks for sharing your day with us sweet Mel!

A lot has gone on since I blogged last. Forgive me! Life has been busy in the best sort of way. We had lots of Christmas celebrations between our two families, 2 birthdays (my GOLDEN birthday included), a trip to the lake to celebrate the New Year with the whole Martin / Tingle / Johnsen clan, and of course the everyday hum-drum of life thrown into the mix.
