Your song

I love a good Elton John classic as much as the next gal.

And this version just breaks my heart.
(I have a mini obsession with Ellie Goulding at this present moment in time)

Attempting to Run

I'm trying to be healthy and attempting to get fit.
I thought it was about time really.

Running scares me.
But they say you must face your fears.
So I downloaded an app called C25K which is designed to get my lazy ass of the couch, outta bed, and on the pavement to running my first 5k in 8 weeks.
And then maybe I'll run 10k, then who knows what else.
Wish me luck. 
There was a time where women running was unheard of, not allowed, bad for your health etc.
(I should have been born in that era.)
But I should be glad that others have struggled before me to make my new dream of fitness possible.

"The idea of running long distance was always considered very questionable for women because, 
you know, 
an arduous activity would mean that you were
going to get big legs...
grow a mustache...
hair on your chest...
your uterus was going to fall out..."

Coffee Understands

It's safe to say that I might have a little addiction.
I love my coffee.
And I have absolutely no plans to give it up.
I will keep on drinking.
Just as the rest of the world plans to too.
As I work through a few tough moments in life and attempt to answer some of the harder questions it seems to be asking, I take comfort in knowing that I have a nice hot cup of coffee to help me through.

A New Year.
New city.
New Travels.
New memories.
New job. 
New tears.
New smiles.
New experiences.
New laughs.
New opportunities.
New fears.
New posts.
New dreams.
New photos.

And new addictions to instagram.
(I don't know what it is about posting my photos on instagram that's so enjoyable.
But I do love documenting moments through photography and showing the world)
Plenty of 'new' to last through the year and to share here, with you.
So far, so good.
