In an attempt to get these posts up more often, this Recent Reads post isn't as long. However, maybe that's easier for you to consume anyway. Enjoy and leave a comment below with what you've been reading lately! 
While I don't think I can choose a favorite part of our UK trip, Port Isaac might be it. I can't describe the charming beauty of this place! It's so photogenic, and we loved walking around taking it all in. My favorite day included doing the cliff walk (which was fairly arduous and muddy!), followed by a pint of beer at The Golden Lion, and eating *fresh* lobster at The Mote restaurant right on the water. It's just gorgeous and quaint.

Let's talk running! I decided to start from scratch and do the C25K program from the very beginning. I figured it can't hurt to get back to basics and build up to running a full 5K. Then I'll build off that towards my Half Marathon next April. Today was Week 2, Day 2. Love the C25K app for this. It has the plan already built in and will ding when it's time to run and when it's time to walk. 
I thought it'd be a fun prompt to go down memory lane today and talk about childhood books! Reading has always been a huge part of my identity and I think reading great books when I was younger totally spurred that on. These were a few series I loved as a kid:
On our drive from London to Cornwall, we stopped by the neatest place! Stonehenge was on our list of to-dos, but a co worker recommended visiting Avebury instead. This is the largest Neolithic stone circles in Britain, and it's nestled in the sweetest little village. It was a great place to stretch our legs and explore. We loved chatting with the workers at the coffee shop, and definitely enjoyed a pint at The Red Lion Pub!
Going to try a slightly different format with todays recent reads post! These posts usually take me a long time to put together because I read so much, so I'm going to attempt to do some quick recaps and one sentence style reviews. Let me know what you think, or if you prefer the more detailed format. (By the way guys! This is post 21! You've got so many book recommendations under this tag! And of course you can follow along on Goodreads.)
Admittedly, I wasn't all that excited about visiting London when we were planning this trip. Cities aren't really my thing, and I definitely get more excited about visiting nature. But, boy, I did not expect to enjoy London so much! I was excepting a New York City, but it felt more like the colors and the cleanliness. Chicago, but obviously much more historical and old! Maybe if you've visited both cities you know what I mean. 
Unfortunately, we ended up sick after our Europe trip! It was awful. My doctor said it was just a terrible upper respiratory thing, but I also ended up with an ear and eye infection on top of it. I really can't remember a time being that sick in my entire life. While, we both felt terrible, it was actually kind of nice to be forced to chill at home for a week+ after traveling. I know our pugs loved having us on the couch!
