Weekend Recap: Double Dog Date Weekend

My work day on Friday ended in an excellent way – with a wine tasting! I had a pretty frenetic work day up until then, but it was really nice to know that there was a hard stop to the day. This event had fifty people, and I did a class on the basics of wine tasting, then we tasted a variety of Coppola wines. I had actually visited the Coppola winery when I went to Sonoma years ago, and {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Snake Training, Hiking, and an Unofficial Louisville Drinks Tour

My Friday night kicked off with a happy hour at Sanitas Brewing in Boulder with another Beaver Creek ski instructor. Tacos, quesadillas, and lots of talk about both running and skiing. It makes me excited to live in a place where so many people share my interests :) I was able to get to bed early, which meant I easily woke up at 6am to take Sadie for a quick four mile run, before hustling to shower and get out {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Starting to Return to Normal

My first weekend without my mom! And also, the first weekend it really felt like things were starting to get back to normal post-pandemic. I kicked it off with a Friday night date to Old Town Louisville. We hadn’t made any reservations, which is normally no problem, but on this beautiful summer evening where so many people were vaccinated and mask orders were starting to lift… it was packed! It seemed everyone had the same idea to get out into {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Fully Vaccinated and Last Ski Day of the Skison

It’s funny… I spent a full year not making any plans because of COVID, but now the last few months, I’ve started planning again (though usually not with other people). This weekend, though, I knew I was getting my second Moderna vaccine on Thursday, so I blocked my work calendar on Friday and made zero plans for the weekend. I was honestly kind of looking forward to my planned day off – a sick day isn’t nearly as bad when {Read More}

Weekend Recap: One Day Weekend

My Friday was work of a different kind – I had taken a few more days off this week to finish my ski instructor training at Beaver Creek! I finished up training on Wednesday and Thursday, but Friday and Saturday I was doing “audits” – where I observe other instructors teach classes to help me better learn the flow. It was interesting to see how each instructor had a very different style, but it was also frustrating not to be {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Thanksgiving Week

I normally only recap my weekends, since weekdays I typically work pretty late so there isn’t a lot to blog about. (Although I know it’s easy for you to check out my LinkedIn, I generally don’t blog about work stuff, or when I do, I try to keep it vague.) But this week was Thanksgiving week – and while I didn’t take any extra days off work, my mom and I celebrated Thanksgiving across multiple nights, starting on Tuesday. Long {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Welcome Sadie!

I didn’t have a ton of plans for this weekend before Thanksgiving, but I was looking forward to getting some quality time in with both my mom and J. However, at 3pm on Friday, an interesting call changed everything… Remember when I was fostering dogs earlier this year? I absolutely loved having a dog to run with, but I decided I wanted a dog of my own rather than a temporary dog that would eventually go to someone else. There {Read More}
