packing for costa rica

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

I haven’t started to pack for Costa Rica yet. We leave on Saturday. I have the Boston Blogger Happy Hour tomorrow night (thanks to a lovely organizer) and I’m meeting friends for dinner on Thursday night. I’m also trying to finagle some plans for Friday night because I’m one of those people that likes to […]

Look, she’s already got a great start with this travel shoe bag… [Taken by Bryce and […]

mobile travel apps

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

So it has been almost a month and I still love my BlackBerry. I am already addicted to the point of utter shame. I find myself myself placing it next to my computer just in case a message comes through, even though I can get almost all of the same messages on my computer. Sometimes […]
