And now, back to normal life.

I know that Labor Day traditionally marks the end of summer, but with this past weekend over, it now finally feels like fall. One of my dearest friends got married this weekend (I'll write more about that soon) and as she and her new husband head off to Hawaii for their honeymoon, I find myself coming home to ground ourselves in our new lives as married people.

My mom drove us back to Brooklyn this afternoon with the gifts from our wedding and I spent the afternoon and evening finding a place for everything. Now that the last hurrah wedding feast is over, I'm looking forward to eating healthier, seeking out fall fruit and (excitedly!) finding my way back to running.

Once the weather got hot earlier this year, I was less motivated to run. Plus I was busy for a while, we traveled, yada yada. But now! It's perfect weather for a run and tonight I found myself researching local races. I put together a training plan for the next 6 weeks to get back in shape for a couple of 5ks and a 10k and I'm thrilled that my excitement for running is alive and well.

Slightly unrelated: I'm not sure why it took me 30 years to get a sweater organizer, but that's the truth and tonight I hung ours in my closet (thanks, Josh!). People. GET THEE A SWEATER ORGANIZER. You are guaranteed to feel 85% more organized. It's basically the best thing ever.

Alright. Off to turn into a pumpkin and have an early bedtime. Tomorrow morning restarts running! It's going to be a little rough considering all the pie I ate last night, but you gotta start somewhere.

P.S. Blog shout-out to Abby (aka yesterday's Maid of Honor), who told me this weekend that she reads my blog. And to her mom, Gwen! I had no idea these posts got to your eyeballs and it makes me happy that they do. Here's the fabulous Abster herself:
