First Time Paddle Boarding!

Guess what I tried yesterday for the first time? Paddle boarding! My dad was actually the one that instigated this fun outing — he wanted to try it so he asked if Matt and I wanted to join, too.

Sand Volleyball Returns!

Good morning, friends! Last night marked the return of intramural sand volleyball! So awesome. One of the few times that grad school feels just a little bit like undergrad again.

The Perfect Weather for a Walk

Good morning! We have been having some STUNNING weather here in Chapel Hill the past couple days. 65 and super sunny on Tuesday AND Wednesday — crazy, right? The only problem is that this makes it very hard to focus on school work. I compromised yesterday by relocating my “office” outside. :) I also enjoyed lunch al fresco! I had Continue Reading …
