Last Monday was a bit mundane, but I am hoping to be back on track… not 100%, maybe not even 60%, but I am better than nothing.
This week, I am thankful, farmer’s markets. Not just the fact that they are, but for what they offer: mornings spent in the sun, bumping into friends you’ve missed, trying new foods, supporting the local farming community, good music and, best of all, memories our budding family will cherish through the cold New England winters. Rhode Island doesn’t offer a lot of “Likes” for me, but the abundance of U-Pick farms and wonderful late-Spring to mid-Fall markets brings me so much joy and so much to be thankful for.
Check out this awesome find we picked up at the Hope Street Farmer’s Market a few weeks ago!
In our community of people with dwarfism, there is a thread about positions people hold. From truck drivers to teachers, geneticists and doctors. Grad students and high school leaders. I am SO excited to know that the smaller community of people that we are a part of truly adhere to their goals and ideals. People with dwarfism can really do what they want with their lives, and don’t have many disadvantages. Sure the military might not be so accepting, but for all the doors that are closed, so many more are open. But perhaps Addie will be a blogger like me. No? … stay tuned. Addie will be typing her first blog soon (I just have to make sure there is nothing open on the computer that she could destruct when she “goes Addie” on the keyboard!).
My random? I love calling myself a runner.
The freedom and love for a sport that I do all on my own- with just some sneakers and a lot of sweat has brought me so much joy and empowerment. The feeling of accomplishment, a community of like minded health nuts (i say that with lots of love), and time I can take with myself or share with my family- and I hope to share more with you (I will be re-posting blogs from a site I no longer use from my initial days on the road. Amazing times I hope to capitalize on as I become a more confident mom-athlete). THIS post here is something I wrote for Jessica Morrison, blogger, runner, mom at 30 Something Mother Runner. I hope you enjoy learning about all the awesome facets of the Girls on the Run program, as well as check out Jessica’s site. She’s a wealth of information- about more than running, about life.
Have a wonderful Monday, Reader… no. Have a wonderful week!
