Weekend Recap: Chicago Sell Weekend and Friendsgiving


Weekend of November 16-17 This was a very short weekend for me, as I had work events in Chicago through Saturday morning. But I managed to pack a lot in! My week of travel was crazy – six cities in six days. However, thanks to a big snowstorm in Chicago on Monday, that leg of my trip got canceled, so I headed straight to Atlanta (my Tuesday destination). Oddly enough, knocking just one city off my list and spending two nights in the same place made my week feel a lot more reasonable. (And next week, I’m traveling to Atlanta …

Weekend Recap: Upstate New York Halloween


Weekend of October 25-27 Can you believe we had our first snowstorm in Colorado already?! I woke up on Thursday morning to find a few inches of snow… but I was flying out of town and off to upstate New York, where the fall foliage was still in brightly colored splendor. I flew into Syracuse, and had a work call come in before I had even made it off the jetway. With back to back calls the entire time on my drive from Syracuse to Ithaca, I arrived in Ithaca absolutely starving at 3pm, having not yet eaten lunch. I …

Vacation Recap: MidwEx Experience Camp


Two weeks ago, I once again had the opportunity to spend a week volunteering with Experience Camps. Experience Camps is a nonprofit organization that organizes free one-week sleepaway camps for grieving children who have lost a parent or sibling. Last year, I volunteered at the Southern California location (CalEx); this year, I had the opportunity to help Experience Camps open a brand new camp in Michigan (MidwEx). I’ve been pretty swamped since getting back to reality, but over the weekend, I got a thank you video from ExCamps… and teared up hearing the kids say thank you directly. (Click here …

Weekend Recap: Vail Brew Fest and SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch


My weekend started off on the disappointing side – with rainy, cold weather that made me cancel plans to go to my work’s annual Promotion Day. Promotion Day is always one of my favorite days of the year – when we announce and celebrate all those who got promoted (we have one time of year for performance reviews / promotions, though we of course provide real-time feedback all year long). However, our Denver celebration was scheduled to be outside on a lake with boating and paddleboarding – fabulous when Colorado is having its usual sunny warm summer weather, but miserable-sounding …

Weekend Recap: Munich!


Weekend of May 18-19 Flight prices to get from Florida to Colorado were crazy leading up to Memorial Day weekend, which I guess extended to the weekend before this year. So I decided to take advantage of being on the East Coast and keep heading east… over the pond to Munich, Germany, where I met up with Craig and a group of his friends for the end of their European tour. We had a blast! The trip started out rather ominously. I had a 4:30pm flight out of Miami, and since 4:30pm ET is 10:30pm Central European Time, I planned to go …
