Getting the News

February 17, 2015: The date we got the letter in the mail saying that I had won a Lilly Teacher Creativity Grant to travel the west this summer. (My proposal was titled Back to the Future: Time Travelling across Western America.) Lexi took the picture of me holding up the letter. I love the pictures of her reaction to the news!

We set out on our adventure June 7th. So much to do in the next week to get ready! We will be sharing pictures and stories as we travel across the west for 5 weeks on this crazy adventure…

  1. Oh my gosh I got so excited for you not only because you won but because it sounded like it was going to be so much fun. Then I saw the date this post was published and realized this happened over a year ago! LOL But, being the dork that I am I’m still excited for you and can’t wait to read the rest of the posts about the trip! I’ve bookmarked it so I can come back later this evening to read them!

    Much love & Big smooches,
    💋 Lysa xoxo


    1. I’m not much of a blogger, but I did it last summer so my family, friends, and colleagues could follow along with the amazing trip I was lucky enough to be able to take. Thanks for reading!
