Summer Highlights

Honestly, I'm not exactly sure where this summer went, but I'm sure most people feel that way.  It seems like it was just Memorial Day and now we've already blazed past Labor Day and are well on our way through September.  

I completed my blog re-design and refresh… there might be a few bugs left and a few pages that I'm still updating but I at least finished most of it, which is a huge accomplishment after procrastinating all summer.  You know how you love something until you stare at it forever and you pick it apart and just can't stand it anymore… that's how I was feeling… then I let it completely derail my writing in general among many other excuses.  

Anyways, I'm back -- refreshed, revamped, reenergized, and ready to write, explore, and share. 

A couple highlights from my summer… (I wish I had more to show, but it went so fast and most of it was work…which I love by the way - more on that later).

Summer 2014 [in 8 photos]

one:: I took up crew rowing this summer for something different and outside my comfort zone.

two:: I love my job and we have a great team working together advocating for the future of agriculture.

three:: I ran the Seattle Rock and Roll half marathon in June for TEAM in Training with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Seattle may be my new favorite city (sorry DC!!).

four:: Any free time this summer was spent with friends out at the lake as much as possible.  Beat that summer heat!!

five:: Most of my summer was spent driving around Nebraska supporting my 19 county Farm Bureaus, county fairs, parades, expos, and meetings!  I drove over 20,000 miles this summer - hello windshield time :)

six:: One of my dearest friends was married in a beautiful ceremony in Memorial Park this summer.  It was all about love, friends, and happiness.

seven:: For the first time ever, I had the opportunity to attend Omaha Fashion Week to see one friend model in a show and another debut her new line!! 

eight:: Summer is for theatre in the park on the hottest day of the year.  

I had a great summer, but no one is happier than I am for fall… bring on the cool weather, fall clothes, pumpkin candles, cinnamon lattes, and husker football!!
