This spring has been a whirlwind of adventures! From Ohio to Washington and places in between, there has been a lot of travel and adventures! Boxing related trips for the most part some personal things as well. Met so many great people and had a lot of fun! Since March, I have been on trips to Ohio, Iowa, Texas, Washington, Minnesota, Missouri and I am leaving for Utah on Sunday.
I love to travel! I enjoy seeing new places and exploring wherever we may be. The adventure cabin (our RV) has helped in that pursuit. It’s been an incredible 16 months for us since we made the trek to Kansas for a project my husband was working on here. Kansas has been good to us! We’ve met incredible people, made friends for life and left our mark on the place, I think.
On that note, I am excited to announce We will be permanently relocating to St Louis, MO at the end of the month! My husband has been offered a position with a great company and he has accepted the offer. A new city to explore, and put down some roots. Last weekend, we got to play House Hunters (ala International style – as we had two days to find a house to buy!), and found a great home that we love in a cute South Saint Louis neighborhood. I am excited to have a new home base, get back to gardening, start working with local clients who would like some guidance becoming plant-strong and become part of the vibrant and diverse community that St Louis has to offer. Looking forward to the Soulard Farmers Market, exploring the parks, possibly getting a CSA share through Maude’s Market and possibly a community garden plot. I am hoping to get an opportunity to work with the Whole Foods Market Town and Country as well – maybe teaching some classes and contributing to Engine 2 -28 Day Challenges there.
Until then, I will be in Salt Lake City, UT – for the Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions with Cam F. Awesome and a few other amazing boxers from the KC Golden Gloves program. I will be there all week, and you will find me at the Whole Foods there daily – grabbing some plant-strong grub! After Salt Lake, I am proud to announce that I will be speaking at the Farms 2 Forks event in Chicago on behalf of Engine 2 Extra. To be speaking at an event with Rip, Jane & Ann Esselstyn, Dr. Esselstyn, Dr. Campbell, Dr. McDougall, Doug Lisle, Jeff Novick and more is just incredible. I am excited to share what we do at E2X and I look forward to meeting so many new friends.
