TGIF! I’m going to make this post short and sweet (just like the cupcakes soon to be stuffed in my face) as not only is it a glorious Friday, but it’s also my birthday. I already woke up before the sun to frost some cupcakes and upon doing so, took a few moments to reflect on my year. Many, if not most of my favorite moments throughout the year have been shared on The Sassy Swan so I figured a special “Birthday Favorites” that included all my favorite blog posts was in order.
“Say Yes…”. I suppose my engagement was kind of a big deal, so we’ll put that first (love you, J!)
Secret City Half Marathon. PR’ing prior to aforementioned engagement. The feeling of accomplishing something you never even thought was possible is priceless.
12 marathons in 12 months. The culmination of a year’s worth of blood, sweat, and tears. Literally. There was actual blood, sweat, and tears involved.
Biting the Marathon Bullet: Currently in the midst of training, and seriously second-guessing my decision to train during the dead heat of summer BUT I’m sure it will be worth it…right?
VA Wine Country Half, aka, J’s first half marathon. I was so proud.
Scorned at CBC. This was by far the most fun thing I’ve done for the sake of the blog. I’ve found that if I can rationalize a blog post from my actions, I’ll do just about anything – including bombarding a brewery at 11 am.
The Mayor. My all time favorite cocktail recipe.
Park City. I had such a blast out there – can’t wait to go back.
Glogg – This was the recipe I had the most fun making. I mean, I was able to get back to my Swedish roots, and then light a pot of liquid on fire!
Engagement Pics: Love love love them.
The Sassy Swan Half Marathon – My favorite half marathon with, coincidentally, my worst time. Life is funny like that.
I wish you all a wonderful day and weekend – Make it a good one!
