2014 Wrap Up

Well, I’ve officially had my longest blogging hiatus of 3 months. Whoops! I’d like to get back to blogging regularly. For most of the fall I was working 7 days/ week and felt like I had no free time. The few hours I had at home before bed were just to shower and get ready [...]

It was my second year running the Pints to Pasta 10k, and I loved it just as much as the first year (if not more!) Last year I ran with Dan and his mother, but since he was back in Japan I went with my college friend Thomas. He’s a blast to go to races [...]

The truth has officially come out- Dan and I are married! And have been for about 3 years! Summer 2010 was a turbulent time. My marketing job wasn’t panning out as I’d hoped, Dan was moving to Japan in September and my mother was diagnosed with aggressive cancer. It was a lot to deal with. [...]

Well, the song that dominated Portland’s radio stations this summer was completely accurate- I did, in fact, have that summertime sadness. This is Dan’s cousin Josh. He passed away 2 weeks ago today. He was our funnyman and just a blast to be around. Dan and Josh at a family reunion 2.5 years ago Dan [...]
