Don't you just love celebrations? I know I do. . . and I'm lucky that I have friends who feel the same way.
For example, last Saturday a group of us met at Michelle's house for our annual celebration of the blooming of her mimosa tree!! Because she'd had the tree trimmed earlier, it didn't produce an abundance of blooms this year, but it made the perfect backdrop for our group photo AND, most importantly, is provided a great excuse to get together.
You can see waaaaaaay up on the top of her tree were some pretty blooms. It was also a gorgeous morning. . .just look at that sky!!!
We always have a little brunch that we enjoy in lawn chairs so we can view her tree!!
Note: check out the PINK plates, napkins and utensils Michelle had for us!!
Wednesday was National Hot-dog Day.....did you know that? Well, Jana (in PINK), the leader of our Wednesday night running group knew that and she arranged for a vendor to be there and to serve us Chicago style hot-dogs after we finished our runs!! What a great way to celebrate completing a 3.5 mile run on a very hot July evening! Karen (middle) and I love hot-dogs and they were delicious!
This morning three of us from our little running group ran/walked our longest distance of the season so far. . . .EIGHT MILES!! Now that's definitely a reason to celebrate!!! This is part of our training to build up to a half marathon distance (13.1 miles) which we will run in mid October!!
