It's official, I'm a Virginia Tech Dietetic Internship alum! All seventeen interns from the DC site and the Blacksburg site, spent Friday at Virginia Tech for graduation. Here are a few choice photos from the afternoon, as well as the best road trip detour sights we've ever seen.

Northern Site Interns

All celebrations require a jump shot.  This is much harder than it looks. On the way back north, the husband decided we needed to finally stop and see Natural Bridge. After driving by for years, I'm glad we took a central Virginia detour. It is a massive sight.

 As we headed back towards the main highway....There was Dino-land.

 And then there was Foamhenge.

  Probably the most hilarious impulse stop we've made. I love FoamHenge.

 Thank you all for your support through this internship experience. I've been asked  a few times and, yes, the blog will continue! There will be no more internship updates, but you'll see lots of:

  • Nutrition News
  • Recipes and Healthy Hostessing
  • Social Media News
  • Wedding and Event Wellness
  • and the occasional food road trip.

So what comes next? The next few weeks I will be studying for my RD exam and cementing the details for life as 'Carlene RD'.

With gratitude and appreciation,
