La Jolla, CA…
the home of new memories, pretty palms, & some of the best frozen yogurt i’ve ever consumed.
the kids were so happy to have Colts players visit their school, lead their work-out stations, and answer their questions— an easy reminder as to why i really do enjoy my job.
(related: when i received the list of players attending the event, there was one in particular i was hoping to steal for a picture. in the end, he said Hi!, i said nothing, went absolutely speechless, & missed my chance. i’m still disappointed.)
bonus points if you can successfully find Waldo (aka me) in the clip!
i saw 28 going so much differently than it did, in a good & bad way.
i was starting to get settled in my house & i was starting to get settled in work, but yet my heart was out of town for a solid 7 months of the year.
& found myself along the way.
there’s absolutely no doubt that 28 set me up for a fabulous 29,
& it all starts tomorrow (!!!)…
i was back in indianapolis working fashion retail while searching for a full-time gig.
i was somewhat lost in the city, in my mind, & in my routine.
dressed up like an Easter egg & became the talk at my Grandma’s coffee hour,
& started to lay some foundation (literally & figuratively),
27 was undoubtedly the catalyst for much needed life change.
i was living in Manhattan, Kansas, making my way through my 2nd year of graduate school.
i still had braces, hence the duck lips (gross!), i was mildly unhappy (thanks to the course load), & i missed my family like crazy.
26 was the year i graduated, i moved back to indy, & let my heart take over my mind.
i grew up a lot during that 26th year.
26 was a humbling year—
are moments i’ll never forget.
after laughing on numerous occasions and tearing up at least 3 times, i concluded that it was one of the most charming movies i’d seen in months, & i would definitely recommend this flick when it opens in a city near you on November 8th.
i mean, it’s Rachel McAdams & Bill Nighy in one film,
& SO much better than any other time travel movie i’ve seen!
go, go, go.
it’s about love, family, & living in the moment…
or as Nighy summarizes for the New York Times, “Be here now—Which is so much easier to say than to do.”
(even the men in the theater were cracking up! it’s brilliant.)
in tech news, i recently discovered my new favorite app, Key Ring!
if you’re like me, you have reward key chains from 1239048123 different stores.
they drive me nuts, yet i wasn’t sure how to get around the chaos…
enter: Key Ring.
you simply scan the reward card, search the database for the store, & you’re done!
toss all the key chains away!
when you’re out shopping, just open the Key Ring app & you’re set—
no key chain chaos required!
