Peeking in my car, you will see bits and pieces of what make me tick… my gym bag from the morning’s power yoga class, my ballroom dance shoes, the key card that gets me into my work office and a book I am going through with my study partner.
While I do love my work, there are many other things that I love to do too and I try as best as I can to 'get it all in'! Seeing the world is one of my favorite past times and after a hiatus from traveling, I am trying to be sure and get back out there! This last year I have taken up ballroom dance classes...and it is totally fun! I always thought that yoga would be too 'quite' for me but turns out that it is really a great workout and I always feel so good at the end and even if I am grimacing through parts of the class as my body does not always want to move in the direction that they recommend, it has become one of my 'go to' classes at the gym!
We are lucky here in Colorado and do not have to go far to see gorgeous mountains and take advantage of pretty perfect weather...a nice mix of all the seasons in my opinion! CO is a great place to be outdoors and so I am glad that my new ACL has done well back out on the slopes and I am looking forward to learning how to use my bike better once the snow melts (those darn clips and gears throw me for a loop!).
More important than doing any of these activities though, is spending quality time with my family and friends. Whether talking over a delicious meal, enjoying a good glass of wine, listening to live music together or heading to a new travel destination...just being together is what makes me happy!
