Check Out and Chill Out

I've had an incredibly relaxing time on the east coast. I'm ready to go home, but this time away has provided me with a great opportunity to to check out and chill out. I haven't done any running while I've been here. Even though it's been insanely hot and humid with record highs, if I was being honest with myself, I don't think I'd have run anyway.

I'm having another one of those checking out moments where I'm checking out and eating poorly and not working out. This one is lasting longer than I'd prefer. I think tomorrow it will be two weeks since my last run. But I don't feel terrible about it. I was talking with my friend Nikee and she said maybe my body needed the break. I don't know enough about my body to know when it actually needs a break. I mean I do, but, I think I'm still to easily persuaded just because. But I do think the break is doing good things for me.

The wedding I attended in Maine was absolutely amazing. It was beautiful and relaxing and peaceful. Here are a few of my favorite pictures of where I was:

I sat out by the water. I got bitten by mosquitoes. I thought about my father. I saw a shooting star. I ate ice cream. I picked up a hitchhiker (I won't be doing that again). I ate lobster. I ate a lobster roll. I've had more Dunkin Donuts hot chocolate than I know what to do with. I stayed up late, I woke up late.

I know it's a really tiny thing, but I had so much fun eating the ice cream cone. I can't remember the last time I had to race to eat the ice cream on top of the cone so it wouldn't melt all over my hand. Things like this remind me of growing up in New Hampshire and it's really not something that I can remember experiencing during my time in Los Angeles.

One of my most favorite things about this trip is how much time I got to spend with some of my most favorite people that I don't get to see as much as I'd like. I had such a fun time with Julio, Lindsay, Mark, Leah, John, Marisa. I laughed a ton and just felt so happy. I really have loved the time I've gotten to spend with everyone.

The fact that I got to be one of the few among Katie Grant and Jordan's wedding guest was the topping on the cake (or the blueberry pie in this case). Jordan and Katie Grand did a wonderful job at putting on a kick ass party and wedding that was truly them and so unique to who they both are. Their wedding ceremony was touching and loving and I felt so honored to be there.

At the end of all this, I hope to go back feeling as relaxed and centered as I did when this picture was taken.
