Hello strangers! It has only been over a month since my last blog. My how the time has flown by! I have been super busy this summer. Also, with the new job, I’m finding it really hard to fit in blogging time. How about we just get caught up and try to do better in the next few days and weeks to come?

An Orthodox Baptism

Happy Monday! I’m a little off today because I don’t have to be at work until 2:00 and I really don’t know what to do with myself.

Gloucester Outlet Shopping

The bright side of being at home all the time (and no working) is that I have lots of free time to spend with friends and family. I also have time to get things done around the house, but that’s not nearly as much fun.

Yesterday, my sister, Michele, and I went shopping at the new Gloucester Outlets in Blackwood, NJ. We live very close

May Days

I realize I have been awful quiet around here. That is going to change. In the meantime, let’s get caught up on where the heck I’ve been!

We had a few rugby games to finish out the spring season.

I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Master’s in Medical Physics!

I’ve spent some time with family.
