life as we know it

What a week!

It can't seriously only be Tuesday, right?! Wow. I'm working tomorrow and headed straight for the airport to hop on a plane to Chicago! One of the perks of being a physical therapist is that our association certainly knows how to pick locations for their annual national Combined Sections Meeting, bringing together thousands of enthusiastic PTs ready to learn about the latest and greatest. The last three years this meeting has taken me to New Orleans, San Diego and Las Vegas and I have so great memories from each city. 

On top of loving the chance to hear sessions from the leading physical therapists in the nation and learning new techniques to integrate into my practice, this conference is a chance for me to reconnect with my friends from Duke. We shared a lot in our three years during PT school and it is so refreshing to spend some great quality time with them.

Other than the fact that I've never been to Chicago and am looking forward to visiting the city, one of my very best friends, Allie, lives there! I'll be staying with her and soaking up every moment I get to see her. She is one of the people that just gets me and who I love so, so dearly. She asked me what I wanted to do in Chicago while I was there. Other than hearing about how amazing these are:

I will also be checking out this and snapping my photo for me you all to enjoy!


  1. wow... i can't even believe it's been a whole year already! seems like just yesterday we were preparing for ethiopia.

  2. Have a wonderful time, Kelly! You are truly blessed with many great friends...and they are blessed to call you a friend as well. It is always fun to reconnect with people we care about and don't get to see as often as we'd like. And, learning the latest best practices in our profession can give us a real boost. Enjoy Chicago, your friends, and the conference. By the way, the cupcakes look awesome. :) Love you. Mom
