Food Comas and Chocolate Bunnies…

Do food comas typically last 48 hours? If you’ve ever spent a holiday at my mom’s house with my family- you’ll see that they most certainly can and often do. After last year’s Easter dinner- a beloved tradition for my brothers and I for as long as I can remember- was canceled due to the […]

A Little Break…

It’s been quite a while (last August, actually!) since I’ve taken a few days off from both working and from blogging to simply just rest, relax and visit somewhere new and exciting or familiar and comforting- and I’m about due for a little vacation to a place that meets all of those criteria.

A Month to Remember: November 2020

Time has been nothing short of an illusion in 2020, often feeling like it dragged on for an eternity when all the days- each very similar to the one before it in this age of quarantines and lockdowns- seemed to blend together into one continuous loop. As the end of the year gets closer and […]

Cold November Rain…

It’s been an absolutely crazy couple of weeks- and I’m not just talking about the lead-up to the election and the election results. It seems that the planets just aligned in recent days and brought me an abundance of surprises and opportunities- which has felt like such a rarity in 2020- and is something I […]
