END OF JANUARY

Now that I'm a married lady and back from our honeymoon, I've slowly been getting back into my daily routine. Planning out lunches and outfits the night before, getting up early, eating breakfast + sipping on hot coffee before work, doing the daily grind, shooting outfit photos in the January dusk, and blogging at night. Before the wedding I had a pretty good healthy eating routine going on, and now that I'm back home and settled, I plan on getting back on the groove of no dairy, no sugar, and no grains. I've also never been much of a runner, but I've been feeling so inspired by a few of my favorite ladies (Hey, Tieka & Mandy!) and I'm feeling ready to get in the game. Plus, it's been BEAUTIFUL  lately, so an outside run sounds perfect right about now (ask me again in July, HA!). I would to hear any of your running tips, and if you prefer to run on a treadmill or outside? I'm all ears!



I'm in awe that it's already the end of January! This month literally zoomed by -- I was a little busy, though! The beginning of January brought much excitement about our upcoming wedding as we packed away the Christmas decorations and celebrated the new year. I was back at work for one full week before taking off to start the wedding festivities. Scott and I both took the week of and after our wedding off so we could completely focus on each other and the wedding. I loved running last minute wedding errands and having daily breakfast dates together! We both celebrated our last few days as single individuals (HEY, bachelorette party!), and then practiced saying I do. On our wedding day, we had breakfast together and got ready to celebrate the most exciting day of our lives thus far! Our wedding was over in a flash, but we devoted our love and lives to one another, danced to Copeland's Coffee for our first dance, fed each other cake, and ran through a wall of sparklers on our way out to the door for the first time as Mr. &a Mrs. G! WOW! January truly was an amazing month!



Now that the month is almost over, I plan on jotting down a few goals to make February the best it can be. I've had a few books sitting on our shelf for months now, and a letter that needs to be written to my penpal. February will be significantly less busy than January, but I'm ready for the month of love and my first Valentine's day with my husband!

  6. First, these photos are beautiful! You're looking great!! And happy to see you back -- and CONGRATS on the big wedding! Ah! I can't wait to see all of the photos.

    As for running, right now I'm only running on the treadmill (since it's so snowy/freezing here right now!) but in spring/summer, I totally love to run outside! Plus it's better for your body since the treadmill is such a routine/mundane act and it can wear/tear on your legs. And I'd also say start small and go big! I went to "go big" immediately and suffered a shin splint, or whatever that was. Not worth it! Good luck!! xo
