So I Took a Vacation….

So I took a blogcation….that apparently lasted a year. Wow.

I can tell you it’s been a busy, crazy, wonderful, challenging and as always, amazing year in the life. I solemnly vow to be slightly less of a slacker the next 12 months.

2014/2015 Highlights:

  • Trip to Portland, Oregon for conference education and a visit to the Cook Cousins
  • Great events for #ISUCALS
  • Highly eventful weekends of watching my favorite short people
  • Lots of trips to the home front for Damon’s last year of high school (WHAT?!?)
  • Celebration of the wedding of one of my dearest friends in the Dominican Republic
  • Removal of a gallbladder (I’m slowly getting rid of all my vestigial organs)
  • Cheering my Cyclones to a Big 12 Men’s Basketball Tournament Championship

Some of my favorite memories this year:

This was the first year Dad's trees had the color he always wanted in the fall. It was beautiful. I can't but help wish he was here to see it with us.
