A Reflection on the Past Year WARNING: This is a long one. I recommend pairing it with a glass of cabernet sauvignon and a hot bubble bath so long that your skin gets all pruny.

We took our show … Continue reading Left High and Dry: Literally

Yesterday, hubby and I woke up to a beautiful, sunny fall Sunday morning. In our pre-babies life, we used to go out for breakfast every weekend. Sometimes on Saturday and Sunday mornings. We love breakfast and starting our day off sitting in a busy diner enjoying 2 eggs over-medium, bacon for him, ham for me, … Continue reading Overeasy: How eggs are cooked.
