Honeymoon Recap + New York City Life

It has been a few months since my last post, which I dislike. “Life has gotten crazy” would be the understatement of the year.

Major updates:

1. We went on our honeymoon to Italy!!!

Doug and I flew out on May 11th and stayed one night in Florence, four nights in Monterrosso in Cinque Terre, and three nights in Siena. These were three very different, very beautiful places. We wish we scheduled one more night for Florence. Cinque Terre had the best hotel. We had a balcony that overlooked a man’s farm/garden where he grew lemon trees, orange trees, and a ton of other stuff. It also overlooked one of the main streets through our town so it was a great place to people watch! We sat out there most nights before dinner with cheese, cured meats, and a bottle of wine to share. Rough life…

Here are some pictures of our trip:

2. New NYC Life

This is taking some getting used to, but the things I love are that I work one block away from my best friend so I see her all the time, my roommates are amazing, and I like my job! The negatives are that I am constantly missing Doug and Lupe, things are expensive, and I hate the hustle and bustle 24/7-ness that New York City is.

I joined a running club, the Gotham City Runners and I run with them as much as I can make my schedule overlap with what they’re doing. The team is really nice and it helps to have people to run with every once in a while!

I ran the Queens 10k last weekend and despite the humidity I got 2nd overall female and ran 38:49. I was hoping for close to 38:00 but I’ll get there. Not too concerned about it at this point!

And finally, here are some pictures of NYC fun:
