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!
Tuesday night we went to see the touring Broadway musical, “If/Then.” I was excited to see it, because Anthony Rapp (of Adventures in Babysitting fame – ha!), who starred in it on Broadway, was also with the touring company. I listened to the Broadway Cast Recording a few times and I knew that there was… Continue reading What if…
I don’t remember many Leap Days of the past, but here are some ramblings… The year Marissa was born was a Leap Year. With a due-date in late February 1988, I had wondered what it would be like to have a Leap Day Baby. She had a Leap Day Baby in her graduating class, so we… Continue reading Leaps and Bounds
February is in full swing… lots of fun things to look forward to! But here’s a quick look back on January goodness…. In January I visited some new places: Bunny’s Bar & Grill in St. Louis Park – right around the corner from Marissa and Adam’s home is the local hangout. Good food! Went there… Continue reading What’s been making me happy…
I failed at the Daily Gratitude Posts on Facebook this November, so I thought I’d attempt a wrap up of the month. There is, indeed, so much to be thankful for! 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
Time just keeps “March”ing on, doesn’t it?
September 1 October 1 In 60 days I will be married. Amazing, eh? It has been a whirlwind, my mind is always a little preoccupied, and (slowly but surely) decisions are being made. Trying to keep it simple and yet throw a fun party, trying to plan a distance wedding and honeymoon week with a… Continue reading August 1
Milestones. SIX years ago June 30, I closed on my townhome. Time flies, doesn’t it? When I moved in, I didn’t have much. Two beds. Chairs. Lamps. And my old TV. Now I have more furniture than I need, my home is comfortable and my closets could likely use some culling! Six years ago these… Continue reading 6.30.14
In the name of Procrastination, I’ve been wanting to blog all week. It’s Palindrome Week, after all. 4.10.14 – 4.19.14. I love stuff like that. I’m finally giving in, with the hope that getting a blog off my chest will allow me to actually write a paper on “Larry.” So here, we go. Things that… Continue reading 4.17.14
It’s hard to believe that today is the last day of January 2014. I haven’t written my 2013 re-cap yet, I haven’t thought much about goals or theme for 2014, I haven’t even organized photos for my photo book for 2012 yet! But all the “haven’t”s are only because I have been doing so much.… Continue reading Where did January go?
