giving in

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Mike’s birthday was this week. To celebrate, we tossed around ideas that included crafting a semi-elaborate birthday dinner, which would have had to have been purchased, cooked and eaten in the few short hours we have between work and sleep.

why you like to travel

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Thank you for sharing why you like to travel with me last week. I think it’s always important to stop and really think about that so we don’t stray from taking chances or pursuing things that will make us happy simply because we get too stuck in the daily grind. I loved your responses, so […]

when you stray from the norm, you open yourself up to discovering new things

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Mike and I decided to give up meat for Lent. For a meat and potatoes kind of gal, you’d think this would be difficult, but in reality, it hasn’t been too bad. Mike and I don’t have time to cook elaborate meals on weekdays so we tend to keep it simple anyways. The real trouble […]
