And how are you?

June 28, 2013

One of my daily reads, Beauty & The Beard, introduced me to this new blogging trend going around called “Currently.” The idea is to post about things you’re thinking about and doing. I love this idea, as a way to round up what's really inspired me recently! This will probably be the longest blog post you get from me, ever, but hopefully you’ll find some of it inspiring as well! 

Reading: City of Women and Women’s Health Magazine. I actually just finished City of Women by David R. Gillman, but was surprised by how much I enjoyed the book, so I wanted to share. The book is about a women in Berlin in the 1940s during the height of WWII. She's a model German soldier’s wife, but behind this fa├žade is a woman of passion who dreams of her former Jewish lover, now lost in the chaos of the war. (sourceIt took about 100 pages to really get into the story, but once I was there I couldn’t put it down! And thank goodness for that, my Delta flight home was delayed by at least 3 hours so I was very glad to have a thrilling book to read. As far as Women’s Health goes, it is probably the only magazine I still consistently buy. I love the balance of content between fitness, recipes and lifestyle improvement tips. I updated my skin regime from an article in their March 2013 issue and it has done wonders for my skin!

Listening To: Miley Cyrus’s new song…ok, hear me out. When I first heard the song I was annoyed off the bat that another musician was trying to be Rihanna, and don’t get me started on her music video. I’m on a big kick to get back in shape and have started running again. Turns out “We Can’t Stop” is my new choice of song for running. It’s got a great beat and the lyrics help when you want to stop running.

Thankful For: My family. I just spent a week at the beach with my parents, sister, brother-in-law and bf. I'm thankful that we love to spend time together AND for my nephew who is due in a little less than a month! I can’t wait for a new family member.

Thinking About: Ben Franklin. One of my coworkers has started providing our team with a daily theme, and today's is Ben Franklin. He pointed out how every day Ben Franklin would ask himself "What good shall I do today." A great idea, right?

Looking Forward To: July 4th weekend in Atlanta. I’ll be going home to visit and celebrate my dad’s birthday, and run the Peachtree Road Race. I can’t wait for ribs and my favorite Mexican Restaurant, Jalisco.

Do your own!
