Hi! Welcome to my blog. Here you will find the ramblings of a gal who loves life, her husband, her children, running, teaching, sipping wine with a girlfriend, and helping others.

Life is too short not to say what you need to say, do what your heart desires, and make someone smile everyday.

As 2013 comes to a close, I have so many amazing experiences to reflect back on.  Over the past 365 days I have met so many new people, walked over 600 training miles with my bestie, started my Doctorate in Physical Therapy program. ran and/or walked a half marathon, bought a cabin in the mountains, completed the Komen 3 day - 60 mile walk for breast cancer, helped Meghan plan her wedding, helped Ashley move into her own apartment, had a blast at the King/ Hill family reunion, rescued two sweet little dogs, and have fallen more in love with my husband than I ever imagined.  I traveled to DC 3 times in 6 months for work and had an amazing time exploring at night.

The year has also come with some difficult moments.  We lost our 13-year-old golden retriever, Jesse in May.  My father continues to struggle with stage 4 colon cancer.

I am so excited for 2014.  The year will start out with a wedding - now that's what I call a start with a bang!  I have several races scheduled and have decided to volunteer more for races and events.  As for work, I have many goals I hope to achieve.  I will continue to volunteer on the committee that takes me to DC and I hope to continue growing as an accreditation reviewer for the American Physical Therapy Association.  I absolutely love teaching at the college level and hope to continue to grow as a faculty member.  And, I will be heading to the mountain every chance I get!

I wish you and your family a wonderful, blessed, exciting and adventurous 2014!  xoxo
