Happy Monday! How was your weekend? The weather here in Chicago was just gorgeous! We did a lot of walking and actually got the chance to break out our bikes. (It was almost like saying hello to an old friend… I’ve missed biking!) Saturday we explored a bit downtown, checked out the Cloud Gate (ie. “Bean”) sculpture, and visited the Picasso exhibit at the Chicago Art Museum. Who knew Picasso was so prolific? I had no idea he also dabbled in print-making, sculpture, and pottery.
So, today also happens to be my 26th birthday (and that’s no April Fool’s joke!). As I am officially no longer 25, I knew it was time to take a look at my 25 While 25 list. There is still a lot left to do… oops! I don’t think I’ll just get rid of the list completely, a lot of the things on there I still really want to do. Plus, I am grateful I had the opportunity to do a lot of the things that I did cross off! Below is a list of recap posts of some of my favorites. (Click on links below in blue to check out my recap posts.)
- Visit my friend Charis in Ireland
- Do hot/Bikram yoga
- Attend the Oncology Dietetics Practice Group Conference in Dallas and the Food and Nutrition Conference in Philadelphia!
- Go vegan for a week
- Do an adventure race, ie. The Color Run!
- Go on a road trip – Pensacola baby!
- Go kayaking/canoeing
I also did some big things that I had no idea were in my future last year when I made this list. The most life altering one being quitting my job at the VA Hospital in Memphis to follow Will to Chicago! A change that I am still figuring out as it has only been one month since we made the big move. Fingers crossed, I will be starting my new job soon and life will begin to find more of a normal rhythm again. Today though, I am happy to pause and thank God for blessing me so abundantly over the course of the last year! Here’s to more of the same in the following!
