I suppose I’ve given away just how long I have been a fan of this beautiful game of baseball with my picture, haven’t I? That’s me at my very first Rockies game, back in 1997. Since then I have been to hundreds and can confidently say that Coors Field is my home, my favorite place on Earth.
Everything I learned about baseball I learned from my mom, Stacie, who also volunteers at the museum (you can see a more recent photo of the two of us on her page!) I love being a fan of the Rockies because, while baseball can teach you a lot of life lessons, being a fan of a team that isn’t always on top can teach you so much more. I’ve learned to respect the game and be grateful for every season, game, and minute spent at the ballpark.
When I am not watching baseball (and sometimes when I am watching from my computer) I am the Vice President of Operations for a silk flower florist in the Boulder area. I love that I get to support all varieties of couples who are getting married and also love that my work is eco-friendly as well. My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years, and at the start of our relationship he said he would never come to a baseball game with me. Well, since then he has been to 6 and now knows what channel they’re on! I love that we have been to as many games as we have, and that I can share this part of my life with him.
(Here I am present day, in case you ever need me at the museum!)
