Sunday Seven 12/2/12 (AKA I got a LOT to share)

Hello there!
Hope the beginning of December is treating you well.
It's been downright balmy here in Iowa. I wore a thin scarf yesterday as part of my outfit and I was practically sweating. We walked outside downtown on date night- with no coats!




And then today it's super foggy and a little bit of a nip in the air.



That's our bizarre weather for you!

This week, I wrapped up my NaNoWriMo novel.
I'm excited that I made my goal, but it's also bittersweet. I've really enjoyed having something to write about consistently. Blogging is not the same. BUT, I'm also glad to get back to EvenMe- sharing my life and passions through pictures and stories for you.

I started the Sunday7 series the very first month I started blogging.


It started for a couple reasons:

1. One of my favorite blogs is A Foodie Stays Fit. Every week, she does a 'Weekender' post where she recaps interesting things she read about during thee week.

2. I love lists (obviously). And the number 7.

3. I really love Sundays. I like to start out with a run and a delicious breakfast.

Followed by church and then any and all kinds of relaxing (often writing).



So, here I am, ready to share! It's been awhile since I've done a  Sunday7 post. So this is going to be a little different- instead of just 7 things, you are getting 7 topics of things.

Enjoy!
