Sporadic: /spəˈradik/ Adjective: Occurring at irregular intervals or only in a few places; scattered or isolated

This one word can sum up my life this summer.  Running – sporadic. Blogging – sporadic.  Good moods -sporadic.  The list continues on.  I can blame it only on one thing – growing a human.  At 27+ weeks pregnant – I’m officially over it.  Yes, yes, the end outcome is beyond worth it, however I’m pretty sure for the next 12 or so weeks I may just be in a less than chipper mood.

It’s not that I don’t try to be cheery, but when your back, abs, and legs ache from the moment you wake up – it’s hard to feel positive.  I made a promise to myself that I would try to not post on days that I was particularly cranky.  Why spread the negative bug around town?  It’s getting harder and harder though as days I feel good are few and far between……..[insert me sitting here feeling sorry for myself] 

Despite this negative spell I had an awesome anniversary week and a wonderful trip to Vermont. I want to hide in my house all day from this Virginia heat, but I’ll admit though for a week or so I was in a better than normal mood.
8/18 – marked another year for hubby and I. 
The weekend before we returned to Great Falls Park where we were married.  Unfortunately on the way there it started to pour and so we were unable to walk around and take our yearly family picture.
On our actual anniversary day it again rained, so no make up trip to Great Falls for another picture attempt.  I welcomed the cooler weather the fat droplets brought and was happy to stay home and pack for our trip to Vermont to celebrate the wedding of my best friend Sarah and her fiance Adam. 
It’s crazy to me how big I thought Chloe and Miles were last year, yet how small they now seem in these pictures.  Time truly does fly.  Why then oh why do I feel like it’s moving so slow now?  Here’s to not trying to wish these next 12 weeks or so away.


  1. Happy belated anniversary! I hope the good-moods start happening more often than the bad. 12weeks sounds like a long ways away but it'll pass sooner than you think.

    Congrats on the anniversary. You sould have taken the picture in the rain. That would have been a great memory!

  4. Happy Anniversary! And as you said it rained on your anniversary, I thought how perfect that was since you love rain so much! Give yourself some grace on the crabiness, it will pass. It will. And like you said, the end result will make it all worth it.

    Great memory Meredith! I do love the rain so I did think to myself that it was only fitting that it was raining.

    Shelly – I wish we could have taken a pic! My small camera is broken and in the shop so all I had was my giant camera that would have been ruined if it got any water on it :( Oh well there's always next year!

    Thank you for all the anniversary wishes!

    I always so envious of the way you got married. Perfect in so many ways and I love that fact that you can go back each year (or attempt). Glad you got some time away together this weekend :)
