the first of many

the first of many

Tuesday — back to work after the long Memorial Day weekend.  I’m grateful to have a great job — but I sure did like the long weekend.  Time with my family.  Time in the sunshine.  Spending time in the garden gave me the chance to notice — my roses are about to B.U.R.S.T with color.


This evening as I made it home, after the long drive —beating the thunderstorm home — I noticed the first rose blazing pink along the walkway.  I love the tiny bit of pink amongst thousands of buds.

A promise of all the wonderful yet to come.  I think this is what every day is.  A promise of wonderful….yet to come…..

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!
