 if we were meant to stay in one place we'd have roots instead of feet

The picture above was taken in Glacier National Park in 2013 on the Pitamakin-Dawson Loop where we hiked over 19 miles in one day. You can read more about the trip here.

Sometimes things happen for a reason. I have no idea why this just hit me but it did. About a year ago, my dad and I were going on a hike and when we got about 1/4 mile into the trail there were two HUGE trees blocking the trail. They were so big that we couldn't even find our way around them. What was annoying at the time turned out now to be a blessing. We left that trail and drove 45 minutes farther north to my aunt and uncle's lake house. We went out to eat with my aunt (she wasn't sick at this time) and then drove the two hours back home. Last fall Scott and I were supposed to go hiking in NC. It was actually a beautiful day and we normally don't skip our hikes on this day but we just couldn't get out of bed for some reason. We had to leave early since the hike is a three-hour drive and we just weren't able to. I was super bummed but then remembered there was a Tiny House Expo going on in Atlanta that we could go to. We went to the expo, had lunch, and then stopped by to see my aunt since she had been in the hospital. We talked to her about small houses and told her we would see her at Thanksgiving. She was taken off life support the day before Thanksgiving. As I write this tears are streaming down my face and I don't know how I didn't see this before but both of those "annoyances" turned out to be blessings in disguise and allowed me to spend more time with my precious aunt.

----- I write these posts throughout the week. I wrote the above at the beginning of the week before some MAJOR changes happened. Once again, I can't really talk about this right now but basically we are back to square one where we don't even know what state we are going to be living in. Seriously, our lives are so up in the air right now it's not even funny. We have to be out of our house in less than two weeks and we have no idea what is going on!

Before we found out we could be moving again, we did find a townhouse we liked and made an offer on it. They counter offered but we didn't accept the counter. #storyofourlife On Saturday we went and looked at a basement apartment to temporarily live and also toured a tiny house again! The pictures below are of the tiny house by Mustard Seed Tiny Homes. They are based here in Georgia and we met them at an expo a few months ago. We went by to check out the tiny house again! No, we didn't buy one...YET. :)

I shared photos below on Instagram stories and Snapchat (hesheeatclean), so if you aren't following us there you should be!

Now I have to think that all of this is playing into what is another plan for us. But then again, I really have no idea what to think right now. We will go back to last week where I posted that my favorite part of the day is when I get to go to bed. ;-)

I'm still using the Run Builder as a guide but adjusting as I see fit. I don't really run that often so I normally swap out incline training and sprints for straight runs.
