HELLO, MY DARLINGSSSSS!
First off, Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful and beautiful mommies out there!
Now… I returned from Europe a week ago. I am so sorry for disappearing off the radar for so long, I really didn’t mean to. However, I really underestimated the emotional impact my trip to Ukraine had. I will talk about this some other time, but I really needed to take a break and I feel that I am ready to be back. *WOOP WOOP!!!*
I know you all would like to hear about my trip to Europe; however, today I’d like to tell about the AWESOME weekend I had!
My hubby and I went to a cottage with our friends. And let me tell you, they are an amazing bunch of people, I love them with all my heart… to the moon and back… twice! Haha! *You see? I AM generous!*
Recently, one of the couples got a super adorable pup, a mix of boxer and pitbull. They called her Stella, and she is the cutest thing EVER! I mean, look at her!!!
Needless to say, Bella and Stella are best friends now! *Why wouldn’t they be? LOL!*
*Aren’t they SUPER CUTE?!?!*
When we woke up on Saturday, we were pleasantly surprised by the sun and warm weather because the forecast predicted showers. The guys considered playing soccer in the backyard, but then we all unanimously decided to go for a hike to Montagne Noire (Black Mountain). I wasn’t aware, but on October 19, 1943, a B-24 bomber crashed near the summit of the mountain. It’s a very sad story because all 24 military men, who were heading home, died in the crash. Not only that, but the plane was found almost 3 years later (read more here). According to Global News, it is the worst accident in the history of the Royal Canadian Air Force.
The nature was simply breathtaking!
It was about a 12-13 km hike (back and forth, obviously). So as you can imagine, the dogs had a blast! Unfortunately, we didn’t see the remaining wreckage of the plane, even though the crash sight was only about 300 meters away: there was too much snow and it would be too dangerous to bring our pups there.
*I took this picture on the way back; but it was about knee deep at the place we got to.*
I feel like this weekend with my family (my hubby & Bella) and friends up north finally brought my mind back to a positive place.
The Spartan Race is only a week away, and I feel like I am not in the best shape for it. Last month was somewhat of an emotional roller coaster and I haven’t done any running at all. That being said, I have remained active and I am super excited for this 13+ km race, and can’t wait for the day to come!
Has this ever happened to you? What do you suggest I do in order to get my body ready *somewhat ready* with only 7 days left? *Let’s be real, I am not expecting miracles here! lol! I simply want to enjoy the experience.*
