There is a beautiful lake a few minutes from me and my brother’s apartment. For living in that area since August, it’s a wonder why I have not been over there yet. Sure, I drive by it and I wave and stuff… but my brother got a bike for Christmas from his lurvely lady and he is always riding over to the trails and he tells me how awesome it is. Daniel and I have been trying to get over there together for the past week or two but this North Texas weather! It’s a replica of Katy Perry’s first hit single back in 2008, you know the one. Then finally the weather was so bomb yesterday, --it was on point-- Daniel met me at my apartment after I got off work and we threw on some tennis shoes, grabbed our shades and started walking toward the lake. It was so gorgeous outside, just the smell of the trail pavement and lake water made me want to sing! We walked for two hours straight --no, not running // we don’t work out that often, baby steps people-- and by the time we made it back to my place, I felt so good. I mean, duh, my legs hurt and the three flights of stairs up to my place was like the scene when Louis Stevens sillywalked for the egg race, but my insides felt great.
Maybe it’s the depressing weather we’ve been getting or maybe not having my iPhone is finally starting to get to me --COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANT, PEOPLE-- but I was in such a funk! Yesterday seriously upped my mood and view on life as of late. I can’t wait to get back out there. Daniel and I decided a patio was crucial yesterday --even if we had just walked five miles-- so we headed to an amazing one for happy hour and enjoyed wine and the wind. Then we polished our night off with Torchy’s Tacos and Catching Fire - he hadn’t seen it yet and I was like “oh my glob, okay, alright, come on, let’s go, this is happening, this is what we play for”. He loved it, duh.
If I can’t make it to the trail today I will just have to hop on a treadmill at the apartments and enjoy the scenic view of the dog park as puppies poop. Can’t wait. This is what I’ll be doing!
I'm Alyssa, thanks for stopping by! A few things: I enjoy laughing, making youtube videos and thrift shopping. Currently listening to "Everything Now" by Arcade Fire. I like my coffee black and my preferred method of maxin' & relaxin' is with my husband and pup.
