Denver! Yes, that's right. We just recently found out that Pat got placed into his top choice for residency, so we'll be heading west this summer! I'm equal parts excited and panicked. Excited because I'm pretty much done living in New England. It's been mostly a good experience but I never intended to stay here… Continue reading It’s official! We’re moving to….
Wow! I can't believe I published my very first post two years ago today! What a journey it's been...and I've still only made it as far as 2014 in chronicling my adventures. But I guess that's a good thing, because it means I have many more years of posts to write, and you guys have… Continue reading Handstands Around the World turns 2!
I can’t believe I’ve been writing this blog for a year and a half now and I still haven’t introduced you all to Pudgey! Pudgey was my very first beanie baby; I got her for Christmas when I was seven. Over the years, she’s come just about everywhere with me – gymnastics meets, camping trips,… Continue reading Introducing Pudgey

I'm just gonna come out and say it: New England isn't my favorite place. It's been a good experience for me to live somewhere different, and I've largely enjoyed my time here, but it's not a place I want to stay after Pat and I finish school. Too many people, too much traffic, too many… Continue reading Autumn in New England
Day 5. The last day of our cross-country road trip. After catching one last glimpse of Niagara Falls, my mom and I set off for the long drive across upstate New York. We drove I-90 from Niagara Falls all the way to Schenectady, before branching off onto Highway 7. This wasn't the fastest way to Connecticut.… Continue reading Eastward Bound (part III) – Ontario to the Atlantic
August 10, 2012: Moving Day. I don't think it had hit me yet that I would be spending the next few years of my life in Connecticut. I'd never been there before. I'd never been anywhere in the northeast. All I had was warnings from various people that northeasterners are rude and everyone has a Boston… Continue reading Eastward Bound (part I) – Montana to Indiana
