I have a really good excuse for not posting for over a month: I got married!
On August 2nd, I married the love of my life: Justin.
Justin and I met on http://www.match.com/ in 2005. After being together for a year and a half, I knew he was "the one" and proposed to him on Christmas day, 2007. (yes, I bought him an engagement ring too!)
We got married in Huntington, VT near Burlington. Ninty-five of our closest friends and family were there to witness our love for each other.
The whole day was great, but it took a lot of planning and preparation. That's why I've been MIA for so long.
Also, during the time from July 2 to the 19th, I wrapped up the last experiments for my PhD dissertation. So, now all I have to do is run the stats on the data, interpret the results and write my entire dissertation. I plan to accomplish this by January 2009.
In the meantime, after our wedding, Justin and I went to Canada for a second reception and just got home this past Monday.
Then... a day later (Wednesday), I started my dietetic internship through UMassAmherst and am now on my road to my RD status by next June.
So... I've got a lot going on, but I will be back to blogging right away. Just a few last things to tie up with the wedding (mostly bills and thank you cards) and I can get into the thick of my dissertation (the writing) and complete my RD internship.
I hope everyone has had a great summer as well and is looking to a fantastic fall.
Thanks for reading my blog!
