Weekly round up

It was a busy week of exploring town. I realized it was time to start finding my favorites. This involved getting a pedicure and trying lunch at Agave. It also involved taking the kids to the local tea shop after school for some amazing snacks, and now they ask to go back almost everyday.

Some photo highlights from the week:

Carnitas and Camarones Tacos at Agave

Amazing hot chocolate and shortbread at Dobra Tea

Cinnamon Pear Cider at Standing Stone Brewery

The other exciting news is that I am back for my 5th year as a Champion! I can't believe it's been 5 years and I'm so grateful to this amazing organization for supporting me all of these years. This means another year of 20% off discounts for you! As in past years I have unique codes for the discount, so if you want one, just shoot me a message and I will send you a code to use.

I'm actively searching the Southern Oregon area for races for 2016, so if you know of any great ones, be sure to let me know.

Welcome to Oregon

It's been a crazy 5 months! At the end of August we made the decision to move to Southern Oregon and by December 1st we had closed on a beautiful house in rural Ashland.

Needless to say, my blogging and race schedule took a significant hit at the end of 2015 due to an enormous work load of selling two properties and buying two others. Now that I am here and settled in I can say that all of the stress, tears and physical pain was worth it, but I never want to do it again.

The girls have settled in nicely to the community, making friends and enrolled in sports and after school activities already. They are loving the new house and even though they have awesome rooms with their own bathrooms, they take turns sleeping in each other rooms!

Now that I have an actual desk and work space set up, working from home is better than ever! I brought most of my clients with me and would love to take on one or two new clients here in the Ashland area. So if you know of anyone looking for social media help, send them my way!

I don't have a race schedule set up yet for 2016 as I'm still exploring local race opportunities and trying to get back into a schedule where I can swim, bike and run. Hopefully that will all fall into place soon.

In the meantime, enjoy some photos of our new home.
