photos at dusk

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

Taking great photos is something I have always struggled with. For me, it’s kind of like learning a new language. I tell myself that one day I’ll study those photography books that Mike has stacked so nicely into our bookshelf, ready for me to open and learn the art of the perfect photograph. One day […]

Buildings form steps up to Coit Tower, which stands tall in the distance, and the sun sets as the city’s flashing lights peak through side streets, ready to light them up after the sun takes its final dip into the horizon.

higher ground

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

A main road in my hometown has a special section that is on a hill. When in a car at speeds around 50 MPH, if you look up at the right time, you can see the Boston skyline in the distance – a whole 15 miles away. Yesterday, even though we expected rain, Mike and […]

mobile travel apps

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 […]

raising a glass to favorite places

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

My kitchen cabinets do not look like Martha Stewart’s. They are filled with hand-me-down plates and bowls, cheap wine glasses from Bed Bath & Beyond and random mugs, wine glasses and cups. Last night I realized that my eclectic collection paints a picture of different places and every time I pour a beverage, I am […]

Monday, May 25th, 2009

I was very excited when Andi of Misadventures with Andi asked me to write up a guest post for her while she is on vacation. She has a great blog that is worth checking out, if you don’t read it already. So, in addition to getting ready to go to a barbecue on this lovely […]

travel deals are everywhere

This week, Camels & Chocolate alerted me to the fact that Virgin America‘s Boston launch could mean some great deals out of Boston – she wasn’t kidding. But, Virgin America isn’t the only one offering travel deals lately… Beginning 2/12/09 you can fly with Virgina America from BOS to SFO to LAX from only $139.00 […]

beyond the fountain and between the glass

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

I always wondered what the story was behind throwing change in a fountain and making a wish. Is there an old fairy tale of which I am unaware? The strangest part is that as a child, I followed suit by way of social norms just like everyone else. But when did it get beyond the […]
