I spent all day today at a staff retreat with our new team at work. I enjoyed spending the day away from the computer and getting to know new colleagues better. In between orientation sessions and retreats, I’m really glad that I’m taking tomorrow off to enjoy a relaxing birthday!
Look what was waiting for me when I got home today – my Institute for Integrative Nutrition materials. It’s like back to school shopping was done for me and delivered to my door step. Now I’m just counting down to the start of classes on July 11!
For dinner a few nights this week I’ve enjoyed this salad as a big component. It contains greens (romaine and spinach), purple cabbage, cucumber, roasted golden beets, some frozen corn, parmesan cheese, and Annie’s green garlic dressing. One night I added a couple of crumbled tortilla chips for crunch. It took maybe 5 minutes to throw together and is perfectly light and refreshing!
After the rest of my dinner I took a nice sunset walk covering about 2.7miles while catching up on the phone with my parents. It was pretty comfortable summer night in DC and the fireflies were out in full force!
There’s no better way that I would’ve wanted to say goodbye to 25. See you in the morning with a special post!
