Updates and Incidentals

Dear blog readers,

I am writing this to you from my own computer! Huzzah! After a week and a half of confusion, and thanks to the hard work of several men in my life (my uncle, dad, brother, and husband), I now have a functioning computer with a new hard drive that appears to contain all of my files. Sorting them is going to take some time, but they're all here!

This week is a bit crazy for me— I have two sisters-in-law visiting from out of town, the summer session of teaching is starting, and Zach and I are in the processing of closing on a house (so exciting!). But I am committing to start reposting blogs starting on Monday (possibly sooner, but we'll see).

Just wanted to let you all know that I haven't forgotten you, and I hope to be blogging regularly again very soon. Cheers!

P.S. To keep you entertained in the meantime, here are some pictures of me and a bear in Albuquerque.


  1. Yeah you're back!!
    Glad you got all your files recovered. I am looking forward to more of your adventure.
    Hope your health improves.

  2. Awesome news! Thought I would check back and see what I'd missed. So glad to see it's close to getting back on the trail...excited! ;-)

  3. Yes, very good news. Can't wait for Monday! ~Craig

  4. Thank you all! I have a blog all set to go for tomorrow. Just posting three times this week because my husband and I are closing on a house and moving tomorrow (after hiking/crashing at my parents' for over a year)! :D
