I mean…I’m THIS close to COS (18 days!). No shame.

The pup is USA bound next Thursday.

Plans are made. Flights are booked. Parents are at the ready.

Unfortunately, she has to overnight in ATL (no way around it, no matter how hard I tried), but heads to DEN first thing Friday morning.

Please send good thoughts our way on the 27th that my bubba gets home safe.

Love,

THIS was two years ago…I can’t believe it.

I packed my life for the next 27 months in those bags, said a tearful goodbye to my mom and dad and boarded a plane to DC to meet a group of people I’d be serving with in Peace Corps Nicaragua.

To think…I’ve completed 106 weeks and have less than 11 to go.

Wow.

COS conference is in two weeks! I can’t believe the end of my PC experience is coming to end within the next 4 months!

me too! I feel like we just started this crazy thing.

I’m still alive and posting…

…less than 6 months left.

Happy Birthday, America!

Today was celebrated by hanging out in the campo, eating rosquillas for breakfast…then teaching Zumba to my local fitness group.

Ended the night eating a quesoburguesa for you, of course!

Go on with your handsome self, and make 237 years old look good ;)

Success!!!

My counterpart and I put on a half marathon this weekend…the first one Jalapa has ever seen. What an AMAZING event we pulled off!

My VAST project this past weekend was amazing….and there are PLENTY of pictures to prove it.

Enjoy!

We’re proud to announce that we will begin accepting applications from same-sex domestic partners who want to serve together as Volunteers overseas!

Same-sex couples may begin the application process starting Monday, June 3.

Grant Camp = Success!

Now that THAT is done…putting my nose to the grind working on the half marathon that me and my counterpart are working on from scratch. It’s coming up in less than a month. AND GO!

Peace Corps Volunteers, trainees, and staff were just a little excited to meet President Obama in Costa Rica last week!

Ahhh! He was right next door! I wish he came up to Nicaragua (hint hint, Mr. President…)
