Happy New Year



Happy New Year! Even though every new day is full of endless possibilities, it’s nice to rip “12/31” off the calendar & see “1/1”, isn’t it?

I’m not going to sugarcoat it, 2013 was a toughie, but I made it through & so did my loved ones, for which I am very thankful. This new year will surely be filled with ups & downs as well, but I’m excited to see where it will take me. Resolutions are not really my thing, but there are goals I want to accomplish- in running, my career, writing & outlook on life in general. In 2014, I vow to myself, my loved ones & the universe: each day when I wake up I will do my best to love, to live, to laugh & BT2Me.

Where do you hope 2014 leads you?

Happiness & Blessings to all!

~Enjoy. Love. Laugh. Live & Always BT2U.~


Monday’s Perk Me Up {late edition}


A little late on today’s edition of “Monday’s Perk Me Up”, sorry about that. I guess I haven’t been feeling my perkiest self lately and had a difficult time coming up with the words to begin this week out on a positive note.  So, I turned to my Pinterest board titled “I Believe” (handy little invention, that Pinterest, isn’t it!) for some wise words to share with you.  When I’m feeling hum-drum, I try to focus on all that’s good in my life and be grateful for what I have instead of my have-nots.  Today & every day I am so very grateful for all who love and support me unconditionally. I feel blessed that I and each of my loved ones awoke to greet this beautiful day…Thank you!

What are you feeling grateful for?

Love This!…Friday


I love Fridays! Who doesn’t, right? Here’s some links to things I’m loving this week, guaranteed to help you pass the time until happy hour. Enjoy & have a beautiful weekend!

♥ It’s Friday the 13th, are you the superstitious type? What would you do if this little cutie crossed your path today?

The “real-ness” behind this post of The Day Book is fantastic. Be yourself, always, make no comparisons to others, good or bad, ‘cuz you just never know what happens behind the scenes.

Are you a runner or is there one on your Christmas list? Check out this holiday gift guide for runners on Active.com. (#’s 6, 7 & 10 are on my wish list.)

Check this clip out…Is there a Spartan Sprint race in your future? I’m signed up & training for one in January 2014! 

Want to give back this Christmas? Purchase gifts from Sevenly, an inspiring organization which partners with a different charity each week.

I went and saw The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this weekend & loved it. It’s refreshing, I think, to see so many young heroines in books & movies of late.

What are you loving this week? Please share!
