Val’s Best Summer Ever!

Val's Best Summer Ever

Job is done and it’s time to party! It’s going to be my best summer ever! Here’s a quick look at what lies ahead:

June 2: Valerie’s Unemployed and Wants to Celebrate Celebration!” – aka getting drunk at the Kerry Piper
June 5: Celebrating Scott’s b-day at a Frog
June 6: The Omen (someone want to go, please?)
June 13: Rachel Cohn (one of my favorite YA authors) and David Levithan at Andersons in Naperville
June 22-26: Backpacking Europe begins in Munich, Germany
June 26-27: Zurich & Interlaken, Switzerland
June 27-29: Venice, Italy
June 29-July 1: Florence, Italy
July 1-4: Rome, Italy
July 5-7: Vienna , Austria
July 7-9: Prague, Czech Republic
July 9-12: Paris, France
July 19-July 22: White Water Rafting & Camping
August 12: Jenny’s Wedding
August 24-28: Washington D.C./Virginia

There might be a trip to Great America in there (maybe I’ll ride a roller coaster, eep!), a wedding shower, a bachelorette party, baseball games and other miscellaneotries.

In the in between times I hope to write the Great American Novel, read all those books I keep buying, help Jenny with any wedding goodness, hang out, and, yeah, maybe find a new job. Best summer ever? Hell yeah!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
