defining adventure

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

This past Sunday my family and I had nothing on the agenda. No barbecues, no parties, no errands (we do grocery shopping on Saturdays now, don’t be jealous). So we decided to be spontaneous – on a whim, we went to the zoo. The idea just came to us, I looked up Sunday hours and […]

peeling back the layers

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

Today my yoga teacher laid out an analogy that made me think intellectually for the first time in a while, probably because these days, yoga – the third class I’ve been to in maybe a year – is the only time I have no choice but to think of nothing but the present. She told […]

capturing nemo

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

Many areas of New England saw as much as three feet of snow as the record-breaking blizzard, known as Nemo, pummeled the region. Like most New Englanders, that left Mike and I cooped up in our house, until cabin fever got the best of us. In case you haven’t seen enough photos of this epic […]

One year ago Labor Day weekend Mike and I spent our one year anniversary eating and drinking our way through the North End. Then, we ended the evening like this…   If you’ve been reading for a while you know how much I love whale watches, or really any type of nautical adventure, whether I’m […]

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Yes, I’m being incredibly in-your-face promotional about next week’s  Taste of the Nation Boston event, but you know that I wouldn’t flood my blog with things that I couldn’t care less about. In fact, this is something that I care a lot about. On April 19th, Taste of the Nation Boston will raise the critical funds necessary to […]

if bourdain came back to boston, i’d take him to island creek oyster bar

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

I bet you thought I wouldn’t follow through with my promise to continue my imaginary journey with the great Anthony Bourdain, should he ever decide to come back to Boston. Well, I know I took a while, but away we go. After a jaunt to the burbs, I’d get back into the city and head […]
