Christmas 2018!

This post is going to have some weird twists and turns: nursing school, newborns, food, political cat memes, & zero proof that my mama was present for Christmas this year (she was though, promise). To start with, on my way home from my last hike mentioned in my last post, I stopped at Eagle’s Nest…

Tuesday, December 11th: An Evening Hike to Horsetooth Falls

A relevant work meme to start this blog post off! I got this evening off from work and headed up to Horsetooth Mountain Park for an evening hike to Horsetooth Falls with a friend and their pup. I forgot how peaceful evening hikes are, and I reaffirmed my love for cold weather hiking.

Tuesday, November 6: Election Day!

It’s election day! Colorado has mail in ballots, which makes it super simple to vote as a resident here.

Friday, October 19th: Mount Margaret & Frog Pond

Thursday, July 12: Dixon Reservoir & The HESI A2

Monday, June 4: Arthur’s Rock Trail & One Year Back in Colorado

I’ve mostly been at work throughout the past few weeks (I gifted myself two new pairs of work shoes this week after googling “best shoes for nurses.” Self love is where it’s at and I’ve been anxiously waiting by the door for the packages to arrive). BUT, I have been able to take some time…
