Weekly Recap x2: 8/19 – 9/1

Hey everyone! I know I said I would be back on Monday, but truth be told, I was exhausted from all the traveling I have been doing lately, so I went ahead and gave myself an extra day. My hiatus from blogging was because Robert and I took a vacation to Austria! It was incredible and the country is beautiful; I cannot wait to recap our trip and show you all the pictures!

Also, congrats to everyone who participated in any of the events during the Disney Half Marathon Weekend; I am so excited to read all the race recaps!
