so, this pretty much sums up my weekend:
i ran: 14 miles of hills on a pristine, brilliant Saturday morning in upstate NY, where i had to wear long sleeves for the first 7 miles because it was only 50 degrees. the first hour of that run felt amazing; the second hour, although i was still happy to be out there, was not quiiiiite so runtastic. that’s what happens when the first half of a run is mostly downhill — you have to turn around at some point. oof.
i cuddled: this lil guy (that milk mustache!) can grin his way into my heart any day. and he now says my name — “Nawna” — and lights up when he recognizes me. i just melt. BFF baby, you too cute.
i danced: i finalllly made it to a Latin dance social upstate, which i used to attend all the time but haven’t showed my face at in moooonths. it was so much fun and i forgot how much i miss dancing! also, i discovered that there’s a whole salsa album of Michael Jackson’s hits (which my brother freaks out about every time). so dope.
i ate: the best apples. i unfortunately didn’t make it apple picking (insert sad face here) this weekend like i’d planned, but my family did, so i reaped the benefit of their hard work and had the best honey crisp apple ever (photo-worthy, obviously). i think those are my faves. & then Ry and i baked pies using our mom’s best Dutch apple pie recipe ever, and Autumn really felt like it should belong to New York for eternity.
i boated: we took the most magnificent Indian Summer boat ride yesterday and had a truly magical family day (until one of the dogs fell off into the lake and almost died of shock, which was hilarious except that she was a disaster and thought her life had ended):
Highlights from your weekend, please!
Is it Indian Summer where you live?
