July 16th: Host a BBQ

What a fun thing to do! Hosting a BBQ is quite the endeavor but such a fun time.

Owning my own house has been such an adventure and has enabled me to do so many things. 

I decided to have a house party this weekend. My friend, Jared, bought me a grill as a housewarming gift, so no better time than to host a BBQ.

So many great friends turned out and we had a fabulous time. I think there will be many more of these to come at this house.

We had cornhole, a keg, some tired pups and a great group of friends!


Next time I will step it up and make some great BBQ!

April 21st: Call a Distant Friend

I think I have talked about this before, but today I revisit it. I have, by choice, moved around quite a bit. This makes for an exciting life, and I love living in and exploring new places. But the down side is my closest friends and the great friends I make along the way, I often lose contact with or don’t talk to as often as I would like.

So today I made an effort to call a friend I have not talked to in a while.

It was so refreshing! I miss my friends, especially my best ones. It reminded me how great it is to  talk to people that know me and have known me through ups and downs, tragedies and triumphs, and know what I stand for and where I come from without question. 

I ABSOLUTELY NEED TO CALL MY DISTANT FRIENDS MORE OFTEN.

February 10th: Text 5 Long Distance Friends

I have moved a few times. New York City, Key West, my hometown, and now Denver I have connected with people differently and vastly.

I am pretty bad about staying in touch. Even though I miss my friends in distant places I rarely reach out to them or talk to them because life just gets in the way.

I often think how ridiculous this is. I need to make more of an effort. So this afternoon I texted five friends that I have not talked to in a while. Hopefully it will inspire a little bit of ongoing communication.

I found this article somewhat about this topic.
