I'm still here!

Life has been extremely crazy lately, hence the little hiatus from the blog. But I'm still here and trying to get back to it soon, at least to post more often than I have in the last month. So why has life been crazy, you ask?

We bought a house!

We have porch!

It wasn't easy, but we were pretty lucky when it comes to buying in the Bay Area. We had our first offer accepted and even beat a cash offer, which is pretty much unheard of. Despite some lender delays due to the snowstorm in Alabama, we closed fairly quickly and then began the long road to getting the house ready. Our realtor team was awesome and I'm pretty sure their connections and negotiation skills won us the bid.

We have been painting up a storm but still have a long way to go before we are done. Many of our non-furniture items have been moved at this point and we've had a couple of new furniture pieces delivered, but again we still have a lot of work to do. Living in two places is hard (let me state the obvious, right?)

I'm in love with this house for its older home character, tall ceilings, and the beautiful kitchen. It's the kitchen I've always wanted and I can't stop feeling incredibly lucky to have found this house! Tonight will be our first official night there with the whole family - me, Kevin, Akai, and Willow. I can't wait to bring the cats over and to see if they like the extra space as much as we do.

And although I haven't been blogging or tweeting much, I've most definitely still been running! In fact, we've had quite a few amazing trail runs lately. I'm feeling stronger on the hills again, which was tough coming back from the hip injury and basically no trail running in 2014. I'm signed up for Skyline to the Sea 50K in October and I hope everything works out this time.

To end this post, here are a few of the epic trail running photos from recent runs. Cheers to the weekend!
