This past weekend, Rye and I took a much-needed break from pergola building and tree planting at the cabin to capture some action shots of Achilles. While I pride myself on being a blog of whatever I feel like posting at any given time (and no real structure), I have not really posted the “dug photo-shoots” that we do every so often. So as today is Achilles’ 10th Birthday, I figured what better time than now to start sharing some of these photos (Also if you like doggies then I promise to share more of these posts in the future… if not then I apologize in advance for the overwhelming love and sappiness I have for Achilles that is about to follow).

There are two types of runners in this world, those that go out with just their shoes and enjoy nature (I strive to be more like this type of runner one day) and those that use technology to the max for their run. I myself (unfortunately) fall more often than not in the latter category. It is not that I do not enjoy running, but I get very much in the mind frame of trying to track every single aspect of my run so that I can know, what is working, where to improve and what I most want to focus on in the upcoming runs.

We have all been there, some maybe more than most. Those times when everything seems to be going wrong and you are lost in your own world. Maybe things just don’t seem to be working out as you intended, or you are not progressing/moving forward like you had hoped, or you’ve been facing some hardship and bad news. It seems like no matter what you do or how much you do nothing changes and you have lost your purpose.

One of my favorite parts of gardening is the planning process. Every year around Early to Mid-April I begin figuring out what exactly I am going to plant this year in the Garden and break out my spreadsheet to start filling it in for the season. This is my time to reflect back on last years season and try to fix or better my garden this year. It also just, in general, gets me excited for summer and garden fresh vegetables.

I am now convinced that 2018 is going to be the year that flies by because I have no idea where the first four months went, nevermind April (I have yet to determine if this is a good thing or bad).
April itself was an amazing month, minus the cold that latched in for a few weeks (but hey I got to catch up on a lot of Netflix so it was not a total loss). I was able to finally escape winter and go on Vacation with Rye. When we returned the weather began to warm up and dare I say it, spring may actually be here! And it was my birthday, which normally I avoid, but turning 25 was a big one for me. I also spent a lot of the month brainstorming and making some changes here on the blog, that are partially visible now, with more rolling out in the coming months. I am happy to say there are some great things coming that I am SO excited for!

It is scary to me that today I turn 25 and have now been on this earth for a quarter of a century. Birthday’s for me have always been weird. I have never been able to fully capture into words what today means to me personally (especially when trying to share it with others) and that is in part due to my discomfort in the day being all about me. Birthdays are not really a celebration for me, but more of a reflection and an introspective look into the course of the year or in general just my time here on earth. It is a day for me to plan on how to be better going forward for myself but more importantly the people around me.
