Library Makerspace Training in Sausalito, CA August 20-22, 2018

Last month, a co-worker and I had the opportunity to attend the first ever library makerspace training at the Bay Area Discovery Museum sponsored through a grant by the California State Library. It was three days filled with lots of information as well as lots of hands on activities. Below are photos taken while at the training event. I was also happy to meet and become friends with a fellow black librarian who works with the makerspace at the Marin City Library. The training was very helpful and I look forward to using our newly gained knowledge to create interesting programs for the patrons in our community.

Of course being that I love libraries, I couldn't resist getting a library card while I was in the area.

Celebrating 12 years of marriage!

It seems like only yesterday that my and my hubby got marriage, not twelve years ago. This past Sunday, we celebrated 12 years of marriage and since we're planning a big anniversary trip next month, we decided to have low key celebration by going to a used book and then we went to see the new Incredibles 2 movie. Overall, it was a great day and I'm glad to have a husband who supports me in everything I do. I big part of being married as long as we have is by constantly compromising, communicating often and making decisions which will benefits both people in the relationship, not only one person. I'm excited to see what the future holds for us!

Race Recap: Rock N Roll San Diego Half Marathon

Earlier this month, I ran my second Rock n Roll 1/2 marathon race for the year in San Diego. The course was a good mix of flat and hilly and the neighborhood course support was fabulous. Here are some photos from race day.

Race Recap: T9 Mermaid Run East Bay Virtual 5K

A couple of months ago, I signed up to complete the mermaid series T9 Mermaid Run East Bay on Saturday, May 12. Since I was working on that day, me and a friend decided to complete the run on the next day on Mother's Day. Since it was a virtual race, the race swag was sent prior to race day and it was pretty cool since in addition to the usual race swag of a shirt, bib and medal, it also included a necklace. Overall, it was a great day for a run and it was even better since I completed the virtual with my friend/co-worker.
