…And just like that it’s almost May! I think the last time we had a “coffee date” on LWA was in January so another is long overdue, wouldn’t you say?! So far, 2017 has truly been the best year and I wanted to highlight some of my favorite pictures and moments! Shall we begin? 🙂
As most of you know, I teach middle school math as my full-time job. Back in March the News & Observer stopped by my classroom and wrote a front-page article on how I implemented March Madness in a lesson on probability. As an educator it is important for me to show my students how math can be fun and relatable! You can read the article here. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better I received a call from Good Morning America about a short feature on the show! You can watch the clip here.
Aside from work things in my personal life has been pretty awesome as well:
- I’m going to be a bridesmaid in my roommates wedding…EEK!
- Hunter welcomed the cutest lab puppy into our lives. Her name is Caddie and Gunner and I are so excited to have a new buddy to play with!
- I finally got over my fear of boats and went sailing for a weekend…I even slept on the sailboat! It was the most incredible experience and I’ve been itching to do it again ever since.
- Less than 22 days from now I will be on a plane to the Dominican Republic and I cannot contain my excitement. Hunter and I are going with some close friends and I know it’s going to be a blast. I would, however, like to take a moment and talk briefly about body positivity. I’ve been discouraged lately trying on bathing suits for my trip because I am having a hard time accepting that I’ve gained a little (healthy) weight. It’s natural for everyone to feel down on themselves every now and then, but I’ve come around and I know that I am beautiful no matter what size I am! Just wanted to share some love today and let you know that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL TOO! 🙂
