I know, I know. Long time no post. Life got INSANELY busy last year and this year looks like more of the same.
Much has happened since my last post. We lost some relatives and church friends, so there were funerals to attend. 😦
But on the other hand, we gained some family members. Two of my twenty-something relatives got married, so there were two marriages to attend. And two new people joined the clan. 🙂
The second marriage involved a trip to Tennessee. I liked Tennessee. Gorgeous mountains and the people there were so hospitable. I also got to see one of my aunts, who I hadn’t seen in a very, very, very long time. It was an amazing experience to catch up.
I went to England to visit my friend, H. It had been six years since I saw the family (they were here in 2011) and about 11 years since I was last in England. I missed you, England.
I got to set foot in Ireland on the way. I wish I could have gone beyond the airport, but alas, it was not to be on this trip.
I had an absolute blast romping around England with H.’s family. We saw magnificent homes with incredible gardens, beaches and even a castle. I also saw the house of one of my favorite writers, Agatha Christie.
And oh, the libraries! The libraries! (Did I mention the libraries???) 😉
I intend to do some blog posts related to that trip in the near future. I have quite a few photos.
After the trip, I came back and went to the International Association of Business Communicators conference in DC. I met marketers from all over the world. I had an insane amount of fun talking and sharing marketing experiences with everybody and made some new acquaintances. I also have stories from that conference as well.
Currently, I’m taking an online class in Web analytics, on my way to achieving a certification in e-commerce. It seems a natural progression. Doing all the work for this class takes up much of my spare time, but I hope to get some blog posts out as well.
I’ve also been reading some amazing books that I can’t wait to tell you about. Stay tuned!
