happy birthday, blog!

Yesterday marked the one-year birthday for my wonderful little blog! I can't believe it's been a whole year already. This is very bittersweet because I have neglected my blog for the past few months. I've been feeling guilty and sad over it. I worked hard to maintain this on a weekly basis and since starting my full-time job in December, I haven't been able to do so 100%. I didn't want this to happen, but I know all of you can agree with me that life can just get too busy and hectic to do everything! And that's exactly what's happened. My week and weekends have been extremely busy. Any downtime I can steal away are spent taking a nap or just resting.

Since this is the "first birthday" of my blog, I thought I'd share some of the things that I've done or in the process of doing for the first time.

Bikram Yoga - I tried this for the very first time with my friend recently and although it was unbelievably hard, I really loved it. I have never sweated that much in my whole life, but it definitely was a good feeling. Very refreshing and relaxing afterwards! Hopefully I can master those difficult poses in no time!!

5K Marathon - Running a marathon has been on my bucket list for a while now and after my failed attempt last year, I am so ready to do it this year! A good friend and I will be running the 5K for See Jane Run here in the Bay Area on June 3rd. I've never been a runner and haven't been very active since my son was born so this will be quite a challenge and an accomplishment for me. I have been training for a few months and now I have a month left to go. I can't wait!!!

Wine Tasting - I've been living near Napa Valley my whole life, but have never gone wine tasting...until last weekend. It's been something I've been wanting to do, so I was really excited to go. It was a beautiful Saturday, perfect for wine tasting. I think I'm hooked now because I told my boyfriend that I want to go again with him next time and I'm even thinking of joining a wine club.
