mid-week round-up

Hi friends! I’m back from Kentucky! I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since I last posted. Time flies! That means it’s time for another round-up of links…but first, let me catch you up. When we last spoke I was flying to Lexington for a much-needed visit with my Mom. We managed to pack in a lot of fun (and a lot of food!) in my quick trip. Then, she drove me down to Bowling Green. I spent the next 9 days working at the Western Kentucky University – Summer Forensics Institute in the Original Oratory lab. The lab was an absolute blast and we had a wonderful group of students who worked super hard. And in between coaching and editing speeches, I got to hang out with the other folks working at the institute…who just happen to be some of my favorite folks in the whole dang world!!! We spent every evening in fits of laughter. After a couple uneventful flights, I made my return to Miami. (Bienvenidos a Miami!) It was a great trip but I’m happy to be back with Chet and Wink!!

How has your week been faring so far? We’ve been working on getting our Save the Date cards out in the mail and generally enjoying the cooler weather. We took a quick adventure through this Nature Preserve over the weekend and it felt like early fall. A little weird in the midst of February! Florida you’re full of surprises! The other night I watched a screening copy of a documentary about Malala Yousafzai and I’m excited to share my thoughts on it tomorrow. I hope you’ll come back then! May the rest of your week turn out lovely, and here are a few links for your enjoyment…

Hello friends! I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday again. Summer is flying by! And can we talk about this weather? Summer Polar Vortex? Mayhaps for those more northern states! Down here, a girl could get use to these moderate summer climes. It was even more magnificent yesterday being by a body of water–even if it WAS just the Ohio River. ; ) The breeze and sunshine were a perfect accompaniment to lunch on a restaurant’s deck as well as a walk across the pedestrian bridge into Cincinnati’s river park. Have you been taking advantage of the lovely weather and exploring outside? I hope! But now you have my permission to take a quick break, veg out on the couch and check out these links.

Five years later his joke paid off beautifully–

Well-played, sir. 66,000 retweets and 35,000 favorites! It seems Rocky Horror fans everywhere were tickled by this punchline. Here’s Tim Curry performing the inspiration for the most patient joke in social media history.

Happy Wednesday, folks! What are you guys up to this week? I have today and tomorrow off work so we have big plans to play in the container garden, work on various projects from the comfort of the Chevy Chase Starbies and maybe head down to Berea to do some hiking around the Pinnacles.
