In no particular order:
Visiting Europe with friends in July 2002.
Taking CB "Churro Bear" aka Hampton home from the humane society in 2005. He has brought me so much joy with his wiggly butt. :)
Meeting my wonderful, wonderful, L in 2009. CB loved him at first meeting (a rare thing) and so did I. Since then, everything has been better with him.
Playing clarinet professionally in Mexico- including a concerto! February 2008
Living in the Yucatan, Mexico from 2006-2008 was a blast!
Graduating from St Leo college with a degree in Accounting in 2011. (and finally getting a "real" job)
Graduating from U. South Florida in 2004 with a music performance degree.
Convincing L to run his first half, RnR San Jose 2009! Which spiraled into Bay 2 Breakers and a host of other events we ran together.
Hanging with my mom in Chicagoland. So nice to finally have her visit where I live. 2012
Seeing this guy happy back in the USA after leaving him in Mexico for 4 months while I got things figured out. July 2008
Hot air balloon ride in Napa for my birthday with L- July 2010. Magical.
Wine tasting in napa. 2009-2011
Hanging at Chrissy Field. And of course moving to the SF bay area. July 2008- January 2011
Spending time with life long friends and making new best friends along the way.
Seeing my dad achieve his lifelong dream of getting his BQ at the RnR Phoenix 2010, and then being able to share in his Boston experience in 2011. He is the main inspiration for me running.
Driving route 66 to move to Chicago from SF bay area. January 2011
Surviving our first Chicago "snopacalypse" blizzard of 2011.
Probably the 1st photo I took of Chicago as we drove in from 5.5 days on the road. I'm still in awe of this city just as much as the first day- over 1.5 years later.
I'm ready for this new decade and all of the amazing memories that will come with it!
Tchau 20's, olá 30's!
