Fast forward a year.
I have moved in to an apartment (which I love, have decorated, and even planted a small garden!), gotten a pretty crazy/cool roommate who is quite possibly even more of a nerd than I, traveled a fair amount (currently up to 145,000+ miles on Mr. Darcy!?!), seen my favorite team win their 5th NCAA championship--GO DUKE!, and been working at Parkside Pediatrics (quite possibly the best pediatric office ever) for a little over 7 months.
I'd say that makes for a pretty spectacular year on this adventure that I like to call "Life."
Many more trips planned (as my time off allows) for this summer/fall...including a big road trip, a wedding, and the Highland Games in October (for which I shall traverse across the continental USofA)...so stay tuned!
If 29 turns out to be half the adventure that 28 was, it's going to be a fabulous year!
Follow on...for the open road is waiting!
