Housekeeping

I've been a little...out of it this week. A little absent. Not even just this week, but for a while. Maybe that's been apparent, maybe not. Either way, it's time to make some changes around here. Nothing big, just the kinds of things that, when added up, hopefully make a difference. Check back Monday to see what I'm talking about. Sorry for being vague and weird - it's really nothing major, I promise. More of a reset than anything.

I've taken a step back from participating in the blog world this week to do some behind the scenes work and some housekeeping for this space of mine, but I can't do it all by myself. I've included a little poll at the end of this post, and if you would be so kind, please give me your feedback! You're welcome to answer anonymously, but if you feel comfortable sharing any comments, you are free (and encouraged!) to do so :)

What topics do you like to read about/would you like to see more of?

Thanks for helping a girl out! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend planned. My parents are coming to visit this weekend - I think it will be their first time here since I was in grad school! My mom and I have a spa date planned, then I'm going to take my dad on a running tour of my new digs (that sentence should tell you exactly what my relationship with each of my parents is). We'll be hiking on Saturday and then Sunday, Ben and I are running the Hokie Half Marathon! It's the first of my 3 fall half marathons but even bigger than that, it's Ben's very first half marathon! I'm so excited for him (in case the abundance of exclamation points didn't make that clear)!

  6. October 28 - got it! That will be 3 days after my half marathon so hopefully enough time for me to think about the next one.
    I know you said it's nothing major, hope everything is ok nonetheless! also I ticked everything but 'other' so I don't think I helped much haha.
