My whole summer is pretty much booked according to my planner.
This is the first week this month that I am not away for a few days traveling for work and I am enjoying sleeping in my own bed.
Next week I am off to Boston and New York for a night each. The following week I am home. The week after that I am in New York again for three nights. The week after that New York again for two nights. Then July winds down with a family beach getaway.
August is not looking any slower. In fact, according to my planner, I can probably take a deep breath come.... October. Crazy, right?
I am thrilled because I was recently chosen to be a Hope Coach who will motivate the Northeast division of the company I work for with our annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign. I even get to go to Memphis in August to visit St. Jude hospital! It is a charity near and dear to my heart as we watched my son's 4 year old cousin battle terminal brain cancer when the boys were just little tots. It was a devastating experience and I am overjoyed to have a chance to motivate and inspire people to help this great cause. I will also be part of the St. Jude walk in November in the New York area, so any of you that are close by and interested in meeting up and walking for a great cause let me know and I will share the details as they unfold.
By the way...I've missed you guys.
