color run birmingham, 2012

so it’s officially been over a month since i last posted, but i wanted to take a minute to blog about the color run. you may remember me posting about it back in the spring.

it was meant to be my first 5k and i went crazy with excitement, began the couchto5k program, etc. then casey got sick, i got sick, and life happened. so, you can imagine my surprise when all of a sudden, september arrived and it was time to … gasp … run.

the run was scheduled for labor day, and of course it rained. has anyone else noticed how insanely wet this summer has been? i feel like i’ve worn my rainboots more than my sunglasses around here …

anyhow, turns out the rain was a blessing in disguise. it kept us cool and allowed for even more color saturation!! i even heard a few people who had obviously ran in other color run events say that they had more fun in the rain!

here are the only three pictures i managed to snap before i tucked my phone safely away to stay dry.

WOWme! Wednesday

I absolutely can’t believe it’s Wednesday again already! Where is this summer going?

Today I’m loving this guy. I took a web design class from him at UAB last spring and let me tell you, the guy is a hoot. Bonus, his art is AWESOME! I can see this print framed and matted and on my kitchen wall already. Now, to talk C into forking over the cash …

Large prints are giclee printed, signed, matted and framed. Go grab one before they’re gone. Or, you know – commission him to make something amazing especially for you!

Happy Wednesday!
