Well we are at the end of the first week of the 2nd Annual Paleo February but as usual, we couldn't let January go out without a bang. I didn't realize it at the time, but we made almost the exact same thing as last year right before Paleo February. I guess knowing that you're going… Continue reading Blueberry Donuts
This semester I am teaching a section of First Year Studies at UPIKE. It is a class that is geared toward helping students transition from high school to college and helping them feel at home on campus.

At 12:30am on Monday morning, we returned from a 5 day getaway to Colorado Springs over Andy's spring break. The American Academy of Osteopathy was having their annual Convocation there this year.

One of my co-workers also has a photography business on the side and at the beginning of October he posted that he was going to run a fall mini-session special: $35 and you get 20 digital images with print release. It just seemed like too good of a deal to pass up, especially with Christmas… Continue reading 5 Favorites: Fall Photoshoot
At the beginning of the week, the administration at the university sent out an email encouraging the faculty and staff to dress up for Halloween. I was already planning on re-wearing last year's costume to work today before I even got the email. An IT person as R2-D2... I felt like it was just too… Continue reading Happy Halloween!
