I’ve been thinking about the number three a lot lately.  Three has a lot of symbolism associated with it.  It is the number of points on a triangle, which represents balance.  Three represents the connection between mind, body and spirit. Three has mathematical significance as the first prime number and religious significance in many religions, especially Christianity where it represents the holy trinity. 

I’m in my third year of marriage this year and the third decade of my life.  Three also represents the points of my blog: balance through food, fitness and life.
Oh, I’ve also been thinking about three for this reason:
baby bendall
It’s the new size of our family!  The Hubs and I are pleased to announce that we are welcoming Baby Bendall this fall!

I’m excited to share my journey with you and I hope you will continue to follow me and leave your warm and thoughtful comments because I love hearing from you.  While this blog will remained focused on all things fitness and healthy living related, I will be posting about the babes from time to time since it is probably the single biggest thing going on in my life at the moment.  Thank you so much for your continued support and loyal readership!

    It’s actually kind of funny — I follow a bunch of bloggers like you and I who are in our late 20s/early 30s and married with no kids, and from time to time I wonder whose going to get preggers hahaha so do the shoes indicate a baby boy?? πŸ™‚
