Looking Forward

Happy May! Did you know this is my favorite month of the year? And not just because it's my birth month. I love Spring and May reminds me of birds singing, school ending, first river swims (if we were lucky!) outdoor eating, warm days and flowers blooming.  So it's a good time to be looking forward to things!

Today I'm looking forward to good weather, a nice after work run and a hearty dinner!

This week I am looking forward to meeting up with a friend for lunch and possibly volunteering for a race on Saturday!

This month I am looking forward to Mother's day with my real and honorary Mom, happy hour with friends, a friend's band playing in a local joint, a race with Broski, birthday celebrations with friends and family, a 50k race, and a mini vacation!

This year I am looking forward to rounding out one year at my current job, trips to Oregon, Canada, DC and possibly New York City, and a hiking trip to Mt. Shasta.

What are you looking forward to? What exciting things do you have going on / coming up in your life?

  2. Happy May Day! Can you remind me when your birthday is? I think it's in the 20s? I should know this!!

    Let's see... I am looking forward to taking tomorrow night off from studying. I am looking forward to seeing a friend this month who will be here for work. This summer, I am looking forward to visiting John in Raleigh, my friend Becky in DC, and my friend Allie in NYC! Hooray for cheap(er) east coast plane tickets. This year I am looking forward to the Chicago marathon in October (if I am able to run it).

  4. Happy May indeed. I never was a real fan of May until you started to put spring in perspective for me. Thanks! Today, I'm looking forward to a walk/run at lunch. This week, I'm looking forward to having virtually no plans over the weekend (much needed break)! This month, I'm looking forward to a trip to St. Louis to see Miss Nora and to go to a Cardinals game. And, this year, I'm looking forward to that trip to Italy, which we finally booked last week!

  11. It sounds like you have a lot of great stuff to look forward to in the near future! I'm looking forward to my trip to Vancouver, being done with the semester, and taking some time over the next couple of weeks to watch ridiculous things on Netflix and read novels.

  14. Happy birthday month! I always love May, because it's usually when I take a cruise - ha!

    I can't say there is a lot I'm looking forward to, which sounds awful but I'm okay with it. Possibly a mini-vacation to Orlando in July and maybe a trip to NYC in the fall (depending on finances!). Other than traveling, I'm looking forward to lots of pool time and The Great Gatsby movie!
