Hi! It's nice to meet you

Hi. I'm Sarah. Welcome to the very first installment of my blog. I'm glad you're here! It might be just you and me today (though my kids might visit later). You can say you were here at the beginning. I'm starting a new chapter of my life.  I've  made some plans and have a lot of ideas to share. I am an introvert and have a habit of needing things to be "perfect" before I put them out there.  But, as we all know, perfection isn't really real. I've been meaning to get this started for the longest time, and because today is as good a day as any, allow me introduce myself.

I am a mom, a wife, and an animal lover. We have 2 kids, 3 dogs and a cat, so someone is always coming or going around here. I am a physician and recently retired from a career in cardiology. We have lived in the Kenwood neighborhood of Minneapolis for 10 years now. Before that was Albuquerque, Charlottesville (for medical residency and cardiology training), Chicago (for medical school), Northfield MN (for college), Columbia MO, Boulder and Chicago (at the very beginning). Phew!

Enough about me. Let's get started!
