365 Days of Happiness — 2 days in one! (119 & 120/365)

365 Days of Happiness — 2 days in one! (119 & 120/365)

The past two days have felt like ONE enormously long day –so that’s how we will account for it. ¬†2 days in one ūüôā

The drive to Florida was 16+ hours — smooth sailing, not aggressive like some trips in the past. ¬†The traffic wasn’t bad either — UNTIL we got to Florida. ¬†Jacksonville (or Jville as we call it ūüôā ) is undergoing long-term road construction and we hit it right at 545pm¬†Friday night. ¬†N.I.C.E. is all that needs saying.

Then we hit the I-4 construction. ¬†Ah-hem, I’m corrected — the ULTIMATE I-4 construction project. ¬†Two lanes of traffic moving 5 miles per hour. ¬†Hey — that was my marathon pace. ¬†I could’ve kept up :0 ¬† That’s the bright side. ¬† When we made it past the 2+ hour delay, the flashing lights told the story of an 8-car crash. ¬†Horrible. ¬†I suppose our delay was really just an opportunity for us to open the windows and breathe in some fresh night air. ¬†In the grand scheme of life on Friday night…. we were lucky and blessed. ¬†Perspective is a teachable moment every single day.



Saturday was G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S! ¬†Tonight — we jumped in my mom’s pool with our clothes on. ¬†Hey — some things are just TOO GOOD to wait for! ¬†#ChooseHappiness365 (119 & 120/365) ¬†#FirstTimeForEverything

Ciao for now….Diane


About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
