What I Read in October 2019

I picked up the pace on reading a bit in October, reading 8 books this month. That puts me at 67 books read in 2019. I don’t think I’ll meet my goal of 100 books this year, but I will probably come close – especially with some holiday time coming up! I’m looking forward to cozying up with some books :) 5 stars: Elevate: Push Beyond Your Limits and Unlock Success in Yourself and Others, by Robert Glazer: I’ve read Robert {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Kelly’s 35th Birthday!

Weekend of November 8-10 I would have to say my weekend kind of kicked off on Thursday last week, as two of my analysts flew into town to visit Denver for the weekend!

Weekend Recap: Back to Running!!

Weekend of November 2-3 I got back from a business trip to Atlanta on Wednesday night, and then Thursday was Halloween. As I wrote about last week, I went to my brother’s Halloween party as a 60s gogo dancer… and I reused the same costume to hand out candy at home in Superior. But before that, I had a PT appointment… and Emily finally gave me the go-ahead to start running again! I’m not allowed to do much, but Friday morning, {Read More}

Weekend of October 25-27 Can you believe we had our first snowstorm in Colorado already?!

Weekend Recap: Chicago to Denver and Not a Moment to Lose

Weekend of October 19-20 This weekend went by fast. I had workshops in Chicago on Friday morning, and since I had a lot of colleagues I wanted to catch up with, I decided to book an evening flight home to give myself a little bit more time there. I didn’t regret the decision, and had a blast reconnecting with some people I haven’t seen in months… but it did mean that I was only home for two days before I had {Read More}
