An Extra Special Christmas
|December 27, 2011||Posted by Lauren under LifeontheRun|
This past week has been a bit of a whirlwind. I didn’t really plan to take a week long hiatus from social media, but right before Christmas, something completely unexpected and incredibly exciting happened.
On December 21st, EC took me up to a small town in Vermont that we both love and asked me to marry him.
The proposal was so perfect in every way. And the fact that it happened right before Christmas, my absolute favorite time of the year, made it even more special. I still get tears in my eyes when I think about it (yes, I’m a cheeseball). I was able to celebrate with EC for a day before making the long trek out to PA and celebrate with my entire family – who hasn’t been all together since my sister got married last June.
So this year, I’m feeling especially cheesy and excited about all the greatness that is to come in 2012. I am thankful for the many blessings in my life, and looking forward the new adventures of next year.
I know I don’t share a lot of my life details with all of you, and so for those of you that read Health on the Run to follow my rambles about training – don’t worry. This isn’t going to become a wedding blog. I may be chronicling some of the planning elsewhere, but we’ll see. The fact of the matter is that I can talk about running all day long to anyone who will listen. I can look at every day for the next 4 months and know exactly what I need to do to make sure that when I toe the line in Boston, I am ready to run my heart out.
But when it comes to planning a wedding? I’m clueless! I’m not one of those girls that has dreamed about her perfect wedding since she was 5 years old. I don’t even really know where to begin. All I know is that I want to spend my life with EC – beyond that, the rest is just details.
I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season. Thank you for being such a huge part of my life this past year. I am thankful for each one of you who reads this blog, and excited to share the adventures of 2012 with you all.
Regular running chatter will resume soon. Boston training has begun!!
