December Goals and Highlights
WOW- November was a month for the books. I knew that it would be busy and fun, and it definitely was! My only goal for the month was to stay healthy and enjoy my trips, and luckily I achieved that (yay for rapid COVID tests and vaccines! Just scheduled my booster!). There are so many highlights that I could share so I'll share my top 4 moments-
Hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park
I was lucky to get to see my family twice this month, including a random and fun zoo trip with my sister and nephew the day after Thanksgiving. We went to the North Carolina Zoo, which is the largest natural-habitat zoo in the world! It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun showing him all of the animals.
Visiting the beach!
One major draw to moving to North Carolina was our close access to the beach, and we finally got to visit the closest one (Wrightsville Beach) this month. It was great to go in the off-season when we had the entire beach to ourselves, and could get into every restaurant and bar with no issue! It was so much fun and the perfect relaxing end to a busy month.
Finally- the best day all month was probably Thanksgiving Day. It started with a Turkey Trot 5k that I got to do with Dan (and he actually enjoyed!) and ended at a friend's house for dinner. For a back story-right when we first moved, I met a new friend at my run club who also just moved to the area, and we quickly became close friends. Dan and I are lucky enough to get to spend a lot of time with them since they live really close, and they invited us over to spend the day with them and all of their family that was visiting. We felt so welcomed and I'm thankful for meeting such incredible people so quickly.
