Hello! -- Our First Post

Hi Everyone!
This is our first official blog post as Dr. and Mr. Franz. :) Why Noodles and Snowflakes you ask? Pretty simple...two of our favorite things. Who doesn't like to say the word noodle?! Noodle, noodle, noodle, noodle! Not to mention, they're pretty tasty. And snowflakes, well, if you know me at all, you know how much I LOVE the snow. It's a good thing too, moving to the Rocky Mountains and all!

It's been a crazy few months...
In May, I finally graduated from Virginia Tech with my PhD in Biomedical Engineering. Boy was that a long time in the making! In June, Jason left his job at UVA to join me in Maine to prepare for our wedding. On June 27th, we had the most wonderful wedding with family and friends in Bar Harbor, Maine. A week later we left for an amazing 15 days in Europe.

Tomorrow we start our drive across the country to our new home in Westminster, Colorado! On Friday I start my job as a postdoc at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, working on cartilage tissue engineering. And in late August, it will be Jason's turn to work on his PhD.

We'll be sure to keep you posted (with lots of photos) as we start our new lives in Colorado, so check back soon!

For now, we have some packing to do. :)

Jenni and Jason
