Sage Synopsis v. 6

I thought it was about time that I started my Sage Synopsis Friday series back up again. It was something I really enjoyed doing for a time, so I'm looking forward to sharing these with you all. 

I'm running the Urban Bourbon Half Marathon this October and let's just say my training has been lackluster at best. I really need to start putting in some miles but I have been feeling pretty down which makes it hard to get out the door. 

I'm not really someone that's terribly prone to depression, but I have definitely been feeling the grief of our miscarriage lately. The loneliness is a hard weight to carry. It's like, all of these people are around but I still feel like I'm just floating through my days. There just aren't words to explain it. Grief sucks.

It's September which means PUMPKIN BEER. This Pumpkin Beer guide is a great place to start if you're looking for some new brews to try this fall. 

Why don't we talk about trying to conceive? This post has a lot of interesting dialogue on it that's worth checking out if you haven't had a chance to already.

I'm a researcher, so I think a lot about the intersection of my faith and science. This read from Relevant Magazine is worth checking out if you're interested in the topic or struggle with making sense of the two.

I have a list of good books that have piled up while I was studying this summer and I can't wait to get back on the reading train.

I'm totally addicted to podcasts and these crime podcasts are at the top of my list.

I discovered The Staves in 2012 during my time in Scotland and I'm still completely in love with them. Their voices are like magic. Seriously, tissues are necessary if you're a cryer. I'm really into this cover right now:

Crockpot weather is coming and I'm looking forward to soup weather. Here is one of my favorites for this time of year.

I stumbled across this post recently about life after miscarriage and I can definitely relate to the feelings of bitterness. I hate that this is my reality right now.

On a more positive note, this post from my friend Caroline's husband on the path to pregnancy was super encouraging.
