Refresh Your Casual Wardrobe With These Joggers

    Totally agree on the college town atmosphere. I grew up in Durham, UK – the University there is not much younger than Cambridge and Oxford. Unfortunately, town/gown relationships are not the greatest there (working class locals in a traditionally coal mining area see many of the students as ‘toffee nosed snobs’, and many of the students do look down on the locals, you’ll regularly hear them making comments when you’re out and about). But I always loved the aspirational air of having them around, it made me think I could go to University too (which I did, as a first gen student and then masters student too, that one here in the US), and the diversity they brought. Now I work at a major University, directly with some of the students. I’ve been here for 15+ years, and will retire from here too, though that is still another 20 years away probably, I’m only 43. The energy is fantastic, the culture varied and there is always something interesting going on. I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.

    I saw the news about the Bulldogs and thought of you right away. Enjoy the celebrations!

    It totally sounds fun, but I’m wondering if – during a pandemic with huge breakout numbers and hospitals filling up – a post about crowding the streets for a parade is maybe not the best message. Everyone is feeling a bit of FOMO while trying to be careful and I would just encourage a bit of restraint as we are battling our way through crisis.

    I, too, live in a college town and totally understand the vibe. It’s energizing and fun. Altho’, I do have to say, I really do enjoy the quiet that prevails when the students are on breaks and the whole merry go round slows down a bit!

    My husband (of 50+ years,) and I moved, when we retired, back to the Illinois college town where we met. Our children also graduated from same college, and live in the area. Best of both worlds here…College events and Family involvement! The positive energy that is in the air only reinforces that this is the place to live!

    I am going to try that recipe! Yum.
    Today’s outfit is very cute. I tried my first sweater joggers and sure had to size way down. They are great for a cold weather day inside. Have a lovely weekend.

    Hi Beth, just wondering about the weather in Athens, mild Winters and hot humid Summers. Also is there lots of insects and creepy critters to deal with. I’ve been to Savannah which was lovely.
