Congratulations to Brynn, who won my giveaway! Didn't win and still want a clutch?
As soon as I get the greenlight, I'll post a link to mom's Etsy. If you're really super ridiculously interested and you can't contain it, email me and I'll see what I can do. ;)
I loved wearing this outfit. It was the perfect combination of comfortable and dressy -- and I think the lace added a fun girly edge to the black and white. Furthermore...it was a total best friend approved outfit. When she saw my outfit she said (and I'm confident enough to quote her here) "This is the cutest I've seen you look in a while!" I'm hoping that was a relative statement, but I kind of agreed with her.
I've felt really off my game -- personally, work-wise, and clothing-wise for a few weeks. A big part of that has been that I've been sick for three weeks (probably flu, too stubborn to try to work out sub plans...I know, I know). I'm on the tail-end of it (still coughing), but I haven't been able to run as much as I desperately want (and need) to. I've been doing Pilates and Yoga, but the furthest I was able to run was a little over three miles. It was incredibly frustrating to feel like I was set back that much in terms of running, but not being able to get outside and just run really set me back mentally (and physically). Even though it wasn't the smartest thing to do while I'm hacking up a lung, Fins and I went for around a 10K run this past weekend. I was in tears by mile one, not because I was in pain or hated it, but because of how happy I was to be running again. I spent the run thinking of all the things for which I'm thankful and I just enjoyed it completely. I even pulled a PR out of the run! I can't explain it, but I finally felt like I was centered again. I really believe that running has made me a better person and I need it in my life now (Fins wanted me to mention that I also feel that way about him...just in case that wasn't obvious).
Do you guys feel that way about something in your life...or am I now one of those obnoxious runner people?
