Still here!

I have not abandoned my blog...well almost, but I am back. We have been moving into our new apartment in Shadyside and let me just say how our quality of life has changed for the better. Yes our rent is a little more for a smaller space and our taxes are a bit (or more) higher but Sean and I are loving our new space and our new neighborhood or as Sean likes to say "our hood." We walk everywhere and just loving being around people. We are smack in the middle of the main shopping/eating drag on Walnut so there are always people our walking, eating and shopping. I love it to say the least!

We encountered some stress during this move and I will admit that there are still some boxes that need unloaded and some things that are not in their permanent spot, but at least they are no longer on our living room floor. We had many, many trips to Ikea to purchase new furniture that would fit in our new space and many nights building and organizing. For those of you that have experience with Ikea know how fun it is building drawer sets. My wonderful husband built our dresser and it looks great! I will try and post some pics when we are done. I also got ill, really, really ill for about 2 weeks in the middle of all the moving. Just not fair, but I am feeling better now.

It has been such a blessing for us to be here. Our dear friends the Melders just moved in the next neighborhood and it takes us 10 min to walk there, it is great! We had a July 4th picnic here yesterday and it was great!

I start back at Harmony Studio this week and I will admit I am a bit nervous to go back to teaching pilates with these brilliant teachers, but I am excited too! It is an honor to work with them and it will be good to get back into that world. It has been a while since I have taught full time and it is time I get back to it. I am sure I will catch the pilates bug again and be writing about all sorts of fun stuff to keep us all healthy and in shape. I am guilty of not keeping up with my own workouts so this will force me back into it.

I hope everyone had a lovely 4th of July!
