Where have I been?

Living life I suppose you could say. Last time I was here there was a huge snow storm and now we are in the middle of a heat wave.  Hello Summer! To sum up my life so far.. Teaching dance class, taking dance class, choreographing for dance class.  There were some relaxing times thrown in there too don’t get me wrong. There have been visits to London..Image

Trips to Boston, Atlantic City, the Lake house,

(Oh yeah and a pretty major haircut!)

Now that the year has started to die down and summer is happening I have had more down time and just time for myself to do whatever I please.  Which means I’m super fun to be around. No really just ask my husband.

Lately, I’ve been teaching master classes all over the place and I have been having a blast meeting and working with so many new and wonderful dancers!

I am super excited about all of my new adventures and will hopefully be sharing more with you!

It’s the 1st of July…

Been in London about a week now and it has been crazy busy.  We have seen a lot of things and visited a lot of people.  We went to the Olympic site, but could only look from the outside as it was closed for rehearsals.  Still, it was nice to see where it will all be happening.  The weather has been pretty chilly here, not much like summer and it is already July!  Yesterday we attended a wedding party of a friend in Kent and the sun was shining!  Today we have a family barbecue for birthday celebrations and little Emilia! I am planning on wearing warm clothing since it is windy and rainy.  

The nice view I am lucky enough to have while drinking my afternoon coffee.  Don’t be fooled, I was showered with rain during my morning run.  It was more of a mid morning run due to some late night car trouble keeping us up til 2am but I won’t get into that.  My legs were feeling like lead, I have been so exhausted, however when that rain came down I did not need anymore motivation, I was in a full sprint.  Luckily I was already on my way back home and up the big hill (One day I will post a photo of the half a mile journey back to the house). I did still get in a good 5.5 miles though.

First run in London.

We made it to London!  After a long 3 hour delay sitting on the plane, we are here.  I am completely Jet-lagged but wanted to take advantage of the fact that it was not raining today and take a run.  I ran a few loops around Ealing Common and then back up and around Haven Green.  It was not too sunny so I had a nice breeze and manage the extremely large hill back up to the house.  It was not as bad as I expected, although I did feel like I might have puked at the top.  Here are some of the London sights!

Also, we had a visit from my most favorite niece today!!  Baby Emilia stopped by, was tired, but we finally got to meet and hold her for the first time!!
