Weekend Recap: Regrouping

I have been really stressed lately – and unfortunately, this weekend that all came to a head. On Thursday night, despite a delay in my first flight out of Charlottesville, Virginia (where I went for a recruiting trip and got to relive some nostalgia and once again enjoy one of the best meals of my life at The Flat creperie), I made my connection and got home on time. Good thing, because when I landed at Denver Airport, my coworker / friend {Read More}

Why I Love Peloton – Recapping My 100th Ride

Although I haven’t done a full post on it till now, my love for Peloton has shown up throughout my weekend recaps and on my social media over the last few months. Last night, I hit my “century ride” (100 classes) – and I got to do the ride live in the studio in New York! My Peloton Journey / Setup Stepping back… I first got into Peloton last spring, when I was in New York for a project for {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Vail “Meet in the Mountains”

It was another busy week at work, and my day on Friday was a bit crazy. I ended with an event at the office that went until 5pm… which was a lot of fun, but meant that I was leaving downtown Denver at peak rush hour! Not ideal for getting out to the mountains, unfortunately :( To my surprise, though, traffic wasn’t too bad. I only lost about 20 minutes from the no-traffic drive time, and made it to Silverthorne without {Read More}

What I Read in December 2019

I stepped up my reading game a bit in December to try to make one more push to the end of 2019, and ended up reading 8 books in the month. Not bad! That meant I finished 2019 with 81 books read – far short of my 100 book goal, but still a great amount of reading during the year. Looking forward to hopefully reclaiming my 100 book win in 2020! 5 stars: The Boyfriend Swap, by Meredith Schorr: I {Read More}

Vacation Recap: Winter Break, Week 2

I left Albany on Christmas Eve, expecting to be home by 6pm. Unfortunately, United had other plans for me :( My original flight from Albany to Chicago was several hours delayed, which pushed me to a later connecting flight as well. I didn’t end up landing until 8pm, and rushed home to drop my stuff off and change, then headed downtown for a wine date at Barcelona. Nice cozy way to close out Christmas Eve and put all the travel {Read More}

Vacation Recap: Winter Break, Week 1

Where to even begin with this recap? It’s been an amazing two full weeks off work, and while not everything played out exactly as expected, I’m pretty happy with how I spent my time. The Thursday before Christmas, I flew from Atlanta (where my client is) up to Albany (where my family is). My dad picked me up when I landed, and we hit the mall for me to pick up some Christmas gifts in store – a lot easier {Read More}
