First, a little about where Enjoy Buffalo is headed. I have fallen behind on posts (20 draft posts?! How did that happen?!) and have decided to begin posting some of my adventures out of order so that I can keep the blog more relevant. Does that mean I will be writing about Garden Walk over Christmas break? Yes, probably...almost certainly.
This fall I began pursuing my MBA degree part-time, I joined the board of a fantastic non-profit, I was selected to speak at TEDxBuffalo, and I am still working full-time and enjoying Buffalo to the fullest. I am completely thrilled to be involved in all those things, but they do take up a wee bit of my time now!
I update on Twitter (@enjoybuffalo) and Facebook (/EnjoyBuffalo) with great Buffalove daily, so please check out those platforms as well to find out about upcoming events, see pictures of what I'm up to, and read positive press about Buffalo.
These are the major events I am dedicating my time to in October. They each showcase some great work being done in Buffalo, and are each being held in a uniquely Buffalo location. I am helping organize the second two and I highly recommend them! Say hello if you make it out. :-)
