finishing for jessi || Journey for Jessi

So I know I have been MIA these past few weeks.  I can go ahead and blame finals and all of the other end-of-semester chaos that is really quite expected by now, but I am not going to.  I know of a few low priority things I can put on the back burner when I have a lot going on, but I do not want this blog to be one.  It acts as a huge stress reliever actually and allows me an outlet to honestly whatever I feel I need to let out (that mostly being my love for food and fitness that gets suppressed by the engineering world–but that’s another story).  As my first day back to my blogging world, I find nothing more suiting than to share how my half marathon went this past Sunday.  The same half marathon I devoted to running for Jessi.

spring flings

spring flings||Journey for JessiAs I have probably mentioned before, Spring is my favorite season.  I love Easter, getting outdoors, the sunshine, the flowers, etc.  This post is just my ode to Spring and what I do to get out and enjoy it.  When I moved to Colorado a few years ago, my outlook on Spring shifted slightly–snow??

the little things

the little things--Journey for JessiI have been taking more time to reflect and enjoy the little moments in life.  You know, part of my resolutions and all that.  It is only day five of the new year, but my newly improved positive outlook on life, I can already tell, will make this year one of my best yet!  Only day five and I already feel happier, more in control of my own life and plans for my future.  I have goals, I have dreams, I am inspired!  Continue reading

chocolate pomegranate smoothie

chocolate  pomegranate smoothie--Journey for Jessi The weather has been foggy, rainy, dreary and “cold.”  Well, cold for Houston.  This always seems to happen when I come home.  I expect a break from the cold and the snow and want to come to the warm and sun, but here I am… oh well.  I am not letting it ruin my fun!

refresh

refresh--Journey for JessiWhat have I been up to?  Well, other than the new fresh-faced blog appearance (let me know what you think in the comments), I have been bounding all over the place in my studies, life, and even changes in my environment.  I feel like I am already trying to get a fresh start on the New Year fast approaching.  For now, I will focus more on getting things caught up before I reveal my New Year’s resolutions in the making, which, should be revealed not a day sooner than New Year’s Day.  Instead, here is a refresher of the new things occurring in my life.

Patriotic Fruit Bowl---Journey for Jessi

I hope everyone had a GREAT Fourth of July!  I know I had an amazing and patriotic day!  I absolutely adore holidays, and I get very wrapped up into the festivities.  Everything I did yesterday had an element of red, white, and blue to it, like my Strawberry, Banana, and Blueberry Fruit Bowl!  Yummy!
