Weddings! Nature! There’s life outside of work!

I am not the best at posting things of late.  Give me break!  It’s been mildly consistent for over 6 years!

The long and short of it is that life happened.  Big time.  This cool guy Kelty said he wanted to marry me.  I said yes. (That journey’s a feminist memoir in itself that I will gladly tell whomever would like to share a nice bottle of vinho verde or malbec sometime).

Then we did a roadtrip to bring my car to Utah, I looked at tons of amazeballs Chicago venues and went to a friend’s wedding as well.  Oh, and we managed to get my soon-to-be-stepkids (!!!) on their first camping trip (to Moab! the lucky ducks!)

I have been a deliriously happy workaholic for years now, bouncing from project to project, conference to conference, country to country, with not a plan to stop.  Having a stupid happy off-hours life now as well is taking some getting used to – kinda like getting ANOTHER latte when the large one you just had, had caffeinated you just fine.  But I am doing well adjusting, I think.  Time will tell, but the extreme way that life dumps either good or bad things on me seems to be evening out.  (a gal can hope, right!?)

Long winded way of saying I am still here and I ain’t going anywhere.  I am still going to live this life harder than most of my peers.  I am just being forced to round out some of my rougher edges.  And, apparently, I will retain my awesomeness, so good deal. 😉
