Did I tell you that I’m doing the Couch to 5K program? Somehow I got the idea into my head that I wanted to take up running, despite having next to zero athletic ability or interest, and hanging on to some baby weight (it’s not actually baby weight; it’s newlywed weight – that’s a thing right? even though I’ve been married almost 4 years?). And since my main motivator in life is not looking stupid in front of other people, I signed up to run a 5K in December, then downloaded the Couch to 5K app. Let’s just say I’m glad I gave myself 16 weeks to do a 9 week program.
Basically I’m telling you this so that you’ll tell me you were once also totally out of shape until you did a similar program and it was hard but worth it and now you’re a Runner and not just someone who shuffles along sort of quickly (which is what running looks like when I do it). Thanks!
In totally unrelated news, did you see our new series, Words to Love By? I think it’s going to be the loveliest way to end the week. Except for weekend links, of course…
Would love to wear this sweet skirt to a party.
And this dress to a fancier party.

I don’t usually pay much attention to celebrity weddings, but I’m in love with what Angelina wore to wed.
Also, a bride in separates? Beautiful.
