Getting caught up AGAIN

I feel like a stranger in a strange land. I haven’t regularly posted about my travels for so long that I couldn’t even remember how to log in. (My last post was fall 2020…a lifetime ago.) I am looking forward to getting back in the groove, with at least a few back-posts about places I’ve visited in the past year. And then, who knows? I’m hoping to start doing more serious travel in the coming months.

My life, along with everyone’s, changed suddenly in March 2020. That month coincides with buying a new house. The entire next year was just strange…coworkers working from home, making a magazine without ever leaving my desk to do an interview, photo shoots with masks. Routines shattered.

In June 2021 I left my job at the Iowa State University Alumni Association, a communications position I’d had since April 1997. Now it’s been a year at my new gig, as director of marketing and communications for the Ames Convention & Visitors Bureau, now known as Discover Ames. We launched a rebrand in May. It’s been quite year!

The year has included SOME travel, though I still haven’t been on a plane since December 2020.

My plan is to post a few quick travelogues – through Iowa and elsewhere in the Midwest – within the next couple of weeks, and then start fresh with new adventures. Wish me luck!
