Welcome to the 5th edition of the COTTER CHRONICLES. Missed the last few? Click here and here! This post is part of a monthly series of “journal” entries focusing on sharing life updates, articles, links to love, food and recipes to try, weekly news, and so on and so on. Consider it a link love meets newspaper and of course, more coffee talk. Sound good?
Hello end of September! I could not be more excited! That means we’re hitting below 90F soon. I know, Texas is crazy. We have like 2 weeks of Fall and 8 1/2 months of summer. Kidding.. kinda. But let’s get the link party started. Not much to catch up with us anyway. I am taking a sabbatical from a lot of over works so I can just rest and be home more. I feel boring but I also really enjoy the mundane right now. That BALANCE is so needed for us anyway.
CURRENT EVENTS and TRAVEL
Like i mentioned above, not much going on. And that is Current. No events are sometimes needed. BUT!!! Wait for it..
I did get a chance to chat with one of my favorite friends on her Endurance podcast. I hate hearing my own voice but loved being able to chat triathlon and nutrition again with Endurance Planet. Check out their podcast here.
Travel, well.. I didn’t go anywhere but my friend Amanda did. YOU MUST check out her ICELAND recap and the Volcanic Hike.
Also, my friend Katie just moved from Texas to Nantucket. Read about her new life style and city HERE!
