Looking back on Summer 2014, it wasn’t too bad.
I started off in Grand Cayman at a human resources conference.
Then my friend, Don MacPherson, came to town for a wedding.
Then I saw my former boss, Vadim Liberman, in New York City.
A few days later, my other-former-boss, Matthew Budman, came to town. He brought his awesome wife, which was fun.
Scrubby got some chin acne and went to the vet.
Then I went to Orlando and saw some friends for #SHRM14.
I rescued a dog and reunited her with her owner.
I went to a wedding with some friends.
Dawn Rasmussen came to town.
My husband and I ate plenty of ice cream, all summer long, and we went to a local lavender farm. The chocolate-lavender ice cream was fabulous.
I rescued that damn dog, again.
Then, on a whim, we went to France. That was pretty great.
Then I made a quick trip to Chicago to see a client. I also saw some friends and got suckered into bowling with some HR nerds. It was really fun.
Then I went to Cincinnati for an advisory meeting. I was stuck overnight, and it became a trip from hell. Except I saw good friends, so that was nice. I should stop being so dramatic.
Tim Sackett’s family came to visit me. I was able to see my boyfriend.
I also spent a significant amount of time running and hiking in the woods. And, oh yeah, I went to the beach several times.
I ended my summer by seeing the Schmidtarelli family in Virginia. The new baby is super cute, but Mugsy is also pretty cute.
The cats had a great summer, too.
All in all, I would give this summer a solid “B.”
Hope your summer vacation was just as fun!
A “B”!? That summer looks like a solid A!
