The countdown has begun! Nick and I leave for Mexico in 12 days. That’s 7 more business casual days, 2 more jeans Fridays, 1 afternoon of pumpkin carving and pumpkin seed toasting, 1 happy hour, 1 Michigan football game, 1 Michigan Alumni Association board meeting, 2 Delta Gamma Alumni meetings, 50 minutes of cross training, 3 hours of strength training, and 37.2 miles to run (6.2 of which make up a 10K race). I’ve just got to get through all of that and then we are off to Mexico!
- Hi there! If you are curious to know who I am, I'm a urban planner and urban designer by my graduate education. I was an English major in college, but the grammar slowly fades from me, so forgive my grammatical errors, but please feel free to let me know if I made a mistake. I will promptly fix it! I'm a novice runner, training for my very first half-marathon. I'm recently engaged. I love to cook. I love to plan. I love to make lists and organize. I can be a bit of a control freak, but I'm okay with that. I'm also known to over-commit myself and I'm learning to say the word 'no'. I love to travel and I hate to fly, but I fly in order to travel. I reside in Dallas, TX with my fiance, Nick, and our adorable adopted Persian cat, Dr. Frederick Stonewall Jackson (or just Jackson for short); but the three of us will find a home in any city or town that this crazy journey of life takes us to.
