Weekend Recap: Last Day of Freedom

Weekend of March 13-15 Wow, things have really changed quite a bit in the last week. I started quarantining on Sunday and don’t plan to leave my house except for groceries until this is all over. It probably won’t make sense to do just “weekend recaps” anymore… perhaps I’ll get back to blogging randomly throughout the week? TBD. But for now, how about I recap my last days of freedom before I started staying home? I was in Atlanta for {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Skiing is the New Golf

This week, I took three days off work to head to Utah with some coworkers for a ski boondoggle. I haven’t taken a true vacation in so long (some time off at Christmas, but otherwise my last vacation was Vienna a year ago). With all the stress I’ve been under, it was definitely much needed! I flew into SLC on Tuesday morning, after some meetings got moved around and I needed to be on the ground by 1pm. I started driving from {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Friends Make Life Better

This weekend was a little bit hectic, but much better than last! I landed home from Florida (where I was traveling for work) at noon on Friday, and had a deluge of calls and meetings the second I landed. My day ended with a few meetings downtown, and a bit of fun stuff, too. The women’s professional book club I started at my office met from 3pm-5pm, and this month, we read Kim Scott’s Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without {Read More}

Weekend Recap: She Works Hard for the Money

This was a rough weekend, my friends. I’ve been trying to post more on Instagram Stories lately, sharing both the good and the bad. And honestly, I have been super stressed out with work. I thought it all came to a head in January, when my friend / coworker Elizabeth visited me for the weekend and I just completely melted down, but the stress has continued and I haven’t yet found a way out :/ Friday was a pretty brutal day {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Solo Talons and Spring Running

After last week’s mess of a time getting home from the mountains, and knowing this was President’s Day weekend, I wanted to get out to Minturn early this weekend. Fortunately, I had a lot of morning calls that were primarily listen-only, so I packed up my stuff late on Thursday night after my flight got in, then headed out Friday morning. I couldn’t leave till 9am because of some active calls from 7-9, and unfortunately, that ended up being my {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Zach’s Cabin Birthday Tradition

This weekend kicked off pretty late, as I was at my company’s Advisory Leadership conference in San Diego Wednesday through Friday, and didn’t get home until 6:30 p.m. on Friday. Unfortunately, due to some delayed flights, that meant I was late for dinner with my friends Chris and Mark. Plus, although it had been sunny and beautiful in San Diego (enough where I got to go yachting with some coworkers!), I landed in Denver to find a snowy mess that {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Superbowl Sunday in Vail

This weekend wasn’t quite as restful as it probably should have been – but I packed a lot into another weekend in the mountains! I got home from Atlanta late on Thursday night, and tried to pack up a bit so I’d have an easier time getting out on Friday morning. On Friday, I took a few calls from home, then a few from the road as I drove out to Minturn, stopping to grab a sandwich on the way. {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Beaver Creek Culinary Weekend

This weekend was much better than the last – it was packed! And full of food, wine, and fun with friends :) I got home reasonably early on Thursday from a trip to New York… and was on the same flight as my friend Sara! It was fun to catch up walking through Denver Airport when we landed, and we ended up making plans to meet up on Friday for lunch and to catch up further. On Friday, I knocked {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}

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}
