getting to europe may be cheaper than you think, at least for now

Friday, November 14th, 2008

Now blogging at Europe String, this week Christine Gilbert uncovered something amazing. Flights to Europe are going for under $600!

cupcakes you can feel good about

Last Sunday a quick stroll for lunch with Lisa turned into a meander around Davis Square in search for some ice cream.
