Hello all! * Sally Jaffe Curley wrote from 30,000 feet on her way to a conference in San Francisco. She is doing well at Cardinal Health in her investor relations and corporate governance career. Husband David still commutes weekly from their home in Ohio to Boston, where he teaches at Bentley University. They recently lost their beloved dog, Grady, a Hungarian vizsla. On a happier note, they have planned a trip to London and Italy, including a special birthday (hmm, I can’t imagine which one!) in Rome. * Jennifer “Jamy” Allen is living on a small farm in Lincoln, Vt., with her husband and three daughters. * After seven years in corporate America with Goodrich Corporation, Kelly Chopus started a new job in the fall of 2013 running a large philanthropic family foundation. She’s a commuter mom with a weekday apartment in Richmond, Va., while her husband runs the household and their three teenagers’ lives (in addition to his restaurant consulting business!) from their home in Charlotte, N.C. * Ann Raible Nicholson wrote to clarify that she has finished her graduate-level certificate in project management and is now taking courses at Washington University toward her master’s in project management. As director of marketing and communications, she is rapidly entering the world of Twitter, Instagram, and Vine as she works to engage law school applicants and prospective students. While she is the parent of two 20-somethings, she would appreciate any pointers on the latest successful trends in social media, particularly for this demographic of young professionals. E-mail her at email@example.com. When she wrote, she was hoping that snow and ice in St. Louis wouldn’t derail her trip to London to visit her son (who was there for a few weeks through his studies at Bradley University). She also planned a visit to Paris, where she hadn’t been since our junior year abroad. * David Epstein has a new gig providing weather forecasts for WBUR, Boston’s NPR station, during winter and severe summer storms. He’s also writing a daily blog for WBUR. If you’re in the New England area, check out his “Weather Wisdom” column at boston.com. He offers the best weather prognosticating in the area! * Marian Schinske described visiting Pasadena a few days before the Rose Parade and seeing the area where the floats were being decorated with rose petals and organic material. A true labor of love! Back home in Northern California she had a great year with her nonprofit, NovatoSpirit, raising enough money to give 52 low-income youths athletic scholarships. * Chris Engstrom and I keep busy with work and the fun of parenting our 10-year-old. Our favorite times are usually weekend family birding outings. Yup, you heard right. Have you ever seen a northern hawk owl? We just did. We also love to travel and are very excited about a South African safari we are in the midst of planning for this summer. * So, friends, what was the highlight of YOUR year? And what are you most looking forward to in 2014? Do write and let me know.
