I had a great day hanging out with the crew. The bags are stuffed. We have a few more errands to run but overall we’re ready! I’m feeling much better tonight.

From Denver With Feelings

Posted by 1 week ago 10 Comments 523 views

Hello, from Denver! Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. I can’t really blame the conference for keeping me busy. I just wasn’t in the mood. Frankly, I haven’t been in the mood for a few days now.

When was the last time you played tag? Just running around like a crazy person, egging on the “it” person, zig-zagging around the yard? Tonight we played a family game of tag and it was a BLAST! Beforehand Ryan and I went to the park. He wanted to workout because they canceled the gym class […]

OK, I don’t know WHAT’s up with me lately but I’m a hot mess. Not in a running-around-like-a-chicken-without-a-head busy way — I actually feel more in control of my workload these days and have worked hard at manage it and my stress — but in an emotional, sappy way.
