Good Things

It’s a big Saturday full of good things!

#1. It’s September 1. 

September brings not only the start of a new month but a whole new season. I find this to be a great time to stop and evaluate where you are and what direction you want to head in.

#2. It’s Gameday!

It’s the first Saturday of college football season. I can’t believe it’s already here! GO DAWGS! I hear we’re ranked pre-season #6 or something like that. Pretty sweet! 😉

#3. Visitors

My friend Miriam (of Bellaspire) is coming to visit today. She’s trying CrossFit for first time! She sent me this video of her cute puppy Baker waiting for the “oink, oink” command to eat. Love it!

What are you excited about on this Saturday? What college football team are you cheering on? 

Have a safe and happy long weekend!

    Excited for my weekly trip to the farmers’ market (despite the yucky weather), grateful for the long weekend to catch up on homework and chores, and cheering for IU, of course, since I’m a student there!

    never been a huge college football fan. probably because none of the schools I went to ever had a team. and i’ve always felt weird cheering for a team that I have no connection to. hrmm. maybe i’ll try and change that this year. suggestions?

      it is so addicting if you go to a football school. your weekends revolve around it all fall. i’m biased but i say SEC schools! we all have amazing football traditions!

    DId my first baseline for cross fit this morning.
    Ok.
    I finally get it.
    I left there feeling the old athlete inside of me who pushes herself to her absolute limit. Loving it! Happy Saturday everyone 🙂

    I’m so happy it’s September, it’s the start of my favorite time of year!!! I’m heading to the farmer’s market for the first honeycrisp apples of the season and enjoying our last day at the campground until April.

    Based on where I live, I’m technically a Hawkeye fan, but I’m really not a football person. And I look terrible in gold and black. 🙂

    Your Fitzgerald quote made my day, in a way that you can’t imagine (well, actually, I think you can). Sometimes it’s so hard to give yourself permission to start over, especially when it feels like all you do is keep starting over because you just aren’t getting to where you want. So thank you.

      candice – i am so happy to hear that you enjoyed the fitzgerald quote. i totally get the whole “permission” thing. as hard as it can be at times, we have to keep moving forward and growing to be truly happy and fulfilled.
