Slowly But Surely, Part 1

QCait Runs
So, I have started running. I started running as part of the weekly running club at work as an excuse to hang out with some of my coworkers outside of business hours, and also as an easy way to get myself moving post-wedding.

Our new neighborhood is essentially the other side of the world from our current digs in Oak Forest, in northwest Houston just outside the loop from the Heights. We have lived Heights-adjacent for the past 4 1/2 years, and there are lots of things I will miss. Read More! [...]

Engaged! My Houston Engagement Adventure

Star Trek Next Generation Engagement Announcement
You may have seen our Star Trek-themed announcement on Facebook… We’re engaged! My FIANCÉ (doesn’t that just feel good?) popped the question just over 2 weeks ago (2 weeks that have been a bit crazy, by the way). He proposed at the Houston Zoo, and then surprised me with a day of visiting our favorite places in Houston. It was absolutely perfect – not to mention a total surprise, Read More! [...]
