I can't believe it's been a year already!

I was curious to see where we were and what we were doing last year, around Memorial Day.
So of course, I checked my personal "life documenter" - a.k.a. this blog.
And I came across this picture:

Memories that came to me when I saw it:

- We had just returned from Korea for my brother's wedding
- We had just decided we wanted to somehow travel the world for an indefinite amount of time, but had yet to work out any of those details
- We were SIX days shy of running a MARATHON
- I was a good 8 pounds lighter
- I had no idea what would entail for us that year
- But I was super excited to find out

Now, one year later, here I San Francisco!

Things I think about when I look at this picture:

- We have recently returned from 6 months of traveling the world
- We are now 1 week in to our San Francisco adventure
- I am nowhere near able to run a marathon again, let alone 3 miles
- I wear loose tops to mask the 8 pound gain-age (see above)
- I still have no idea what this next year will entail for us
- But am I excited? Yes. Nervous? Definitely (as you can clearly see in my weird/nervous/fake-ish smile)

Anyhoo, crazy what life throws at you, huh?
Here's to another year!
But more importantly, Happy Memorial Day to you all!
I hope you find a special way to spend it.
Even if that means spending the day in yoga pants and eating BBQ'd ribs.

  5. am I JUST finding your blog? My husband and I did the exact thing when we got married...quit our jobs, sold everything we owned and bought one way tickets to Panama...6 months later we flew back to the US from Vietnam--we were jobless and homeless too! (that was 3 years ago, but hey, not too many people do that in their lives!) Plus I'm from San Diego! Looking forward to reading up!!

  6. It´s fun to look back at old pictures and reminiscing about how life was like then.

  7. so i know this is random (and i don't know if they are hiring for what you would want to do) but you should check out peek. they are based in san fran and are all about traveling.

  8. How fun to look back over the year and reminisce on all that you've done! My husband and I are in the planning/saving stage right now until we take off in January for some travel adventures so I know what you mean about how much your world can change from one year to the next.

  9. Such a good idea to look what you were up to last year! totes stealing this idea. and i cant believe how fast time is going by. I cant believe you guys are back in the states already!

  10. Every year passed, you get a chance to start new. Happy memorial and love your black top.
