I remember when I used to write these posts every single week, no matter what and here I am, writing my second 'Currently...' post of the year.

My poor, neglected little blog here has been pulling at my heart strings. I'm itching to get back to writing consistently, reading other blogs, and sharing my travel stories both as a resource and a keepsake.

I still owe you my posts from our March trip to Dubai! So, for the month of July, I'm giving myself a challenge - 30 days of working on my blog - not posting every day, but doing something to invest time into this little corner that has been so much a part of me for the last seven (yes, seven!) years.

I hope you'll stay along for the journey! Now, onto today's business...

Currently... Planning our summer vacation. The Pilot and I are both desperately in need of some time away. (I know, I just spent weekends in Dublin and San Francisco) but we aren't taking our anniversary trip in September because of back to back weddings, so we're taking it now. After weeks of hemming and hawing, we finally decided where to go! I can't wait to share all the details!

Feeling... unsure. This has been a loaded question lately. May was a really hard month and I'm still reeling from everything that happened. These little weekend getaways have been every bit about getting away to take my mind off of things and I'm hoping that our vacation will help me to reset and start to feel at peace with my new normal.

Reading... I finished a book last night and am thinking about starting either "The Tiger's Wife" or "The Devil in White City" today. Has anyone read either?

Thinking about... everything I need to get done before we leave for vacation. Our apartment still isn't completely unpacked...yes, since we moved in six months ago and I really want to come back from vacation without anything home-related on my to-do list.

Watching.. Jane the Virgin. Oh my gosh, what?! I just finished Season 3! Does anyone watch this show? I need to talk about it. Season 3 was a roller coaster that left me with way more emotions than a TV show should be capable of!

Working on... getting back to running. Until last week, I hadn't run in six weeks. Yup, me, the blogger behind Planes, Trains, and RUNNING SHOES, hadn't run in nearly two months. I'm telling you, life has been tough lately. After almost two weeks of not running more than two miles, I finally made it up to three this week. Yup, that's an accomplishment for me these days. Seven-time marathoner right here.

Planning... our vacation!

Needing... a massage...so badly.

Wanting... to have everything in our house magically be done so that we can take a true staycation. The Pilot and I talked about a staycation this summer but I felt like it would inevitably turn into a marathon of work, which I really don't want.

Loving... The Pilot. He's been my rock these last few weeks and I don't know what I would do without him.

Don't forget to link up tomorrow for the Beyond Words Book Club! 
We're discussing Margaret Atwood's, "The Handmaid's Tale".

What's on your 'Currently' list lately?
