How are you? I've been rather busy with life, specifically giving birth to our second child and trying to get a hang of life. Life really changes after you have children and much of it is for the better, but some parts were really difficult. These parts were uncontrollable which was annoying because the only … Continue reading It’s Really Been Awhile…
It's been so darn long since I've actually posted anything. At first it was due to lack of motivation and then it was because I got a new job! I began my new job during the last week of February and it's been a whirlwind since then. I've been so busy and also stressed out … Continue reading Are you still there?

Everyday I come to work and I think of how lucky I am to be employed at the university that has provided insurance for the past couple of years for my family. It came at a very good time and in particular when my husband was in the midst of being in nursing school. It … Continue reading All work and no play?
I had two very good reasons for not posting last Thursday and Friday. My husband graduated from nursing school on Thursday evening and my sister graduated with her Masters degree in Climate Science and Solutions on Friday afternoon. On Thursday, my husband and I worked out at Crossfit Flagstaff and did half of "Murph" which consisted … Continue reading Celebrations
I wake up every day knowing that I am very fortunate to have a good job that comes with lots of benefits such as good supervisors and educational perks. I learn amazing stuff that I would not otherwise have the opportunity to. Whenever I read or hear the news and learn of unfortunate events or … Continue reading I am fortunate
