Monday was a day that just made my soul + heart happy. We got to spend the day with my parents and two youngest sisters; taking our time getting ready in the morning then playing around in Ashland, Oregon for the afternoon.

Ashland was such a beautiful green city with rolling green hills and a fun personality. After walking out of a local running store downtown, Landon and I were both sold which whether it'll ever happen or not feels good. Finding cities, companies, or people who mesh well with who you are [or want to be] is such a good feeling.
The best part was having my parents and sisters there, and that it felt so natural. I decided halfway through the day that maybe it was a good thing I didn't use my miles and fly home two weeks ago when I was so homesick and just wanted to be with them. The two weeks ended up flying by, we'll get to spend more time together in a few weeks, and now Landon + I still have the miles to fly up and see them when fall or winter sets in.
