Friends Like These

Over the years I’ve come to realize the following about myself: I’d rather have a few good friends, than a ton of so-so friends. In this transient lifestyle, it means more to me to be able to stay connected to people who genuinely know me than to try to have to explain myself to new […]

Two Weeks of Eating in America

I’m back! I took last week off – sort of intentionally, sort of unintentionally – because I spent the previous two weeks in Denver for my Annual Meeting and then a besties reunion. I did manage to blog a bit while I was working at the conference, but when my friends were in town I […]

Throwback Thursday: Orlando

Today is the first day in the history of me working my Annual Meeting that I didn’t have a late night. I’m celebrating by writing this blog about the time I left for the meeting a week early and Sean and I went on our “Dushanbe Moon” trip to Orlando to act like children before […]

Book Review: Vagabonding

I worry I approached this book with a fair amount of prejudice. For one, I don’t like self-help books and this one sort of falls into that category. For another, Sean is obsessed with Tim Ferris, and I tend to roll my eyes heartily every time he starts a sentence with “Tim Ferris said…” or […]

My Favorite 2019 Annual Meeting Stress Dream

I leave tomorrow for Denver and ACHA 2019. This will be my fifth annual meeting with ACHA, and this year has been absolutely bat shit crazy. We’ve had just anomaly after anomaly happen to us in the last month; including the printer deciding not to work for a full week before the truck. Like that […]

National Botanical Garden of Georgia

Something I took for granted as a kid was living within walking distance to a large, expansive park. I fondly remember going to the playground, the nature center, and the botanical gardens as a kid. Sean and I even got married in those very gardens. It’s my happy place. When we moved to Annapolis the […]

Fitness Travel Essentials

I’ve got a lot of traveling coming up between now and October. All good travel, just a lot of it in a relatively short period. One thing I’ve found that really helps my mental clarity and feeling of “normalcy” when traveling or PCSing is making time for myself in the form of fitness. I always […]

Baku

Baku is only a short and smooth 55-minute plane ride from Tbilisi. I did only the tiniest bit of research before this trip since we were going to be at the track for most of our time, and I figured since Azerbaijan is Georgia’s neighbor, they would be at least relatively similar. I was so […]

Azerbaijan Grand Prix

This was a trip that’s been in the works for about seven years. Ever since we saw the Monaco¬†practice back in 2012, I knew it was only a matter of time before we finally made it to a full race weekend. It just so happens that 1) we live in a country next door to […]
