Catching up here and everywhere in my life right now; thought you might want to see a bit more of our February — or at least the parts I happened to photograph!
An old friend sent me this gorgeous, hand-carved spoon for my birthday. He’s been wearing hats I’ve knit him for close to a decade; I love that I’m going to be stirring things on the stove with his handiwork for years to come.
Um, another one of those amazing breakfast sandwiches. I’m pretty sure I snap a picture of this each time I eat it.
My smoothie matches my pants! It needed to be documented.
Cocktails and oysters. Just because, and also because I’ve got some news to share: this summer, Boh and I are headed West. I’m going to start my dream job in the fall, and I could not be more excited. (I also could not be more tired — balancing my first year of professoring with being on the job market has been exhausting.) I’m grateful every day for the wonderfulness of my students and my colleagues at my current institution. Everyone here has been so supportive of my search for a tenure-track position (I am currently a visiting professor), and even though I am thrilled about where I’m headed, I will be sad to leave this community.
Got stuck in Newark during my interview travels, which means I got an evening with this sweet dog and her owners.
This guy is getting a bit gray in the face. Love him to pieces.
Christening a new pot with brussel sprouts!
Another professor costume.
Oh, hello, Boh. Why so worried? I keep telling him that we are going to move back to the mountains, but I don’t think he gets it. His response is always something like, “is it dinnertime?”
Oh, what a nice surprise to hear from you again! And new adventures ahead. Share along the way, please.
So glad you have landed your dream job. Boh will be happy anywhere you are, as long as you feed him lol.
Congratulations on the dream job!
Congratulations! Dream jobs are hard to come by.
Congratulations on the dream job! Life is good when the work you do is something you love! Oh and it doesn’t hurt to have an adorable pup to share your journey!
Congratulations on the dream job! You’ve certainly earned it with all the years of hard work!
Congratulations on the job! I know how tough the market is for academics these days…
Well, big congrats! It’s nice when all that hard work pays off.
Wow, congrats on landing your dream job! You’ve worked hard and I am sure Boh is quite proud! Long time reader, first time commenting… :-)
