Goodbye Summer!

Summer is officially over. (Well…at least for teachers.) It has been a whirlwind of a summer, so I will post a little recap of what I have been up to this last month. First off….

I got married! It was a great day with just close friends and family. We decided to get married at Miami University in Ohio, where we both went to school. Planning a wedding from afar was a little challenging, but I am so glad we picked our old college. We had a lot of fun visiting our old favorite places. The old buildings on campus made for nice locations that required minimal decorating.

There were also beautiful gardens on campus for pictures.

Then, after the wedding, we headed back to Jersey and left for our honeymoon to….

BORA BORA! It was a very long flight, but worth every minute. It is exactly like the pictures and what you see on TV – absolutely perfect.

We stayed in one of the over-water bungalows with our own deck. There was coral right under the bungalow which made for amazing snorkeling. The water was a beautiful clear turquoise.

I ate and drank a lot and didn’t run at all. I did ride a bike once, though! I figured I can run more marathons in the future, but I probably won’t be back to Bora Bora. It was a nice little break too. Really, once you are in Bora Bora, you just feel like relaxing all the time. It’s paradise – literally.

Now, the fun is over. Back to work. I can’t complain too much though. It was the greatest summer of all time. Besides, I do actually enjoy teaching. But not only is it school time, but a new semester of grad school starts today, and marathon training is really getting intense now. Time to step it up!

How are you handling the end of summer?

  1. Congratulations!!! You are a beautiful bride and you both look so happy! Bora Bora looks amazing and you’re totally right – you can always run later but you’ll only be in Bora Bora on your honeymoon once. Good luck with the upcoming school year!
