The photo to the left is from our Everglades trip. We spent two days paddling through the intricate, mangrove-lined waterways, slept on a chickee (platform on the water), and woke up to dolphins swimming outside our tent. We learned a lot about both canoeing and teamwork after almost taking my head off three times. Craig would get going fast and we wouldn't be able to avoid low-lying branches. Naturally, I always have my camera glued to my eyeball and I didn't see them coming in time. EPIC.
It's my last day of work in Florida tomorrow. I'm headed to Disney where my awesome boyfriend is attending some fancy elite athletes USATF conference or something like that. We get to enjoy Disney World for a couple days. I'm kind of pumped- I've never been. And then we are going to Texas. We'll be all over Texas for about a week before finally arriving in KANSAS! Home sweet home. Can't wait to see everyone.
I've applied to a few jobs in San Diego, but I'm only applying for ones I really want- places I could see myself staying and growing. I'm ready to start building something, and although I have built a lot of skills and life experiences over this year I'm ready to be settled...for a little while anyway. And I can't believe Craig and I are finally going to be in the same place for the long term! YAY for that! Can't wait to see what the next few years bring. Every year I am surprised by the awesome people, places, and things I get to experience. I have a feeling it is just going to keep getting better.
