It’s IMPOSSIBLE to land on May 1 and not think of the song from Camelot – the Lusty Month of May (as evidenced by two blog posts in my history referencing the song!). So go ahead, take a minute and have Alexa play it for you or find it on YouTube… Ok. So I’ll forever… Continue reading It’s May!
Chris and I eat out a lot. I told Chris that in our 3rd year of marriage I wanted to eat at home more – it’s healthier, it’s cheaper, and it could be fun to cook together! But it isn’t easy. When we work our long days, we don’t eat much at home except fast… Continue reading A Foodie Post!

I am grateful for the arts – music, movies, theatre… Chris and I saw Madea at Saint Mary’s University in Winona – a translation from… Continue reading A Month of Gratitude
I’m overwhelmed. I like to blog about the “goings-on” of life, but wow. There’s been a lot going on. So, instead I’m going to give you lists of the good stuff with very little commentary – if you have questions, ask! First, I got married in NYC. I have hundreds of photos but instead I’ll… Continue reading Where have I been? What have I been up to?
It is a pleasure to walk outside at night and feel the warm summer air! Aside from all of the rain we had this week and last, we have had good June weather so far! It’s also a pleasure to have some weekends off to enjoy the summertime! But, as I’ve said before, I don’t… Continue reading 6/21/14: Summer Solstice! And summer begins…
Always so much to be thankful for! We are marching in to June and the calendar is filled with fun things on the days that work isn’t scheduled (and even on some days when work is scheduled!).
