Favorite Things : August 25-31, 2018

favorite things

I cannot that after this weekend summer is over. It flew by. I’ll admit to being a total cliché. I love fall, pumpkin spice lattes, and hot apple cider. I’m ready for the season change, but I’m not ready with how quickly time seems to be going.

I’d say it has been a successful summer. I finished two chapters and had them approved. I raced my first triathlon and two trail races. We went to Frankenmuth, Michigan and to Nashville, Tennessee. We went camping.

This fall I start teaching my first college class. I’m nervous, which I think is reasonable. I’m also very excited. I have been waiting a long time for this moment. Tuesday is the first day. I have not been able to touch my dissertation, because I want to make sure I’m as prepared as I can be. I feel so lucky and blessed to finally be able to do this that I want it to go as well as it reasonably can.

And so, without further ado, this week’s favorite things:

I mean I don’t think I’m bored, but I have always dreamed of doing an endurance event.
