life lately has been soooooooo busy… the last month flew by! I’ve already been back at work for 5 weeks and my students just completed their first month of school…. what?! I can’t believe how fast time goes by. I’ve been really busy with the start of the new school year, traveling, getting into a steady workout routine, and doing some wedding planning. I’m afraid I’m only going to be busier in October! I am grateful though for 3 days off in October (Columbus Day, Rosh Hashana, and Yom Kippur… the school I teach at observes Christian and Jewish holidays) plus 2 other days off that I’m taking to go to Georgia for a cousin’s wedding. I love having y’all follow me on Instagram to keep up with what I’m up to but here’s another glimpse at life lately with a few extra photos:
