Traditions and Gardens…

During the first Fall after my father passed away, I remember one particularly gloomy and rainy weekend in late September/early October. I’d lost him in the middle of the Summer that year- and the weeks that followed were spent making arrangements, tying up loose ends he hadn’t gotten to before he’d died, helping my mother […]

Summer Vacation Part III – San Diego

Apart from Las Vegas, I think the only other city I travel to the most would be San Diego, California. I’ve been making yearly trips out that way for over ten years now- so much in fact that I can get around without a GPS/Google Maps, have my “regular” places to eat, shop and stay- […]

Summer Vacation Part II – The Mojave

When driving, it takes approximately five hours to get from Las Vegas, Nevada to San Diego, California- and it’s a drive I’ve made multiple times to and from with Kelsey over the years.

OOTD: Ruffling Feathers…

Although I’m not in any hurry for the Summer to be over anytime soon- one of my favorite end-of-the-season activities is heading up to Hampton Beach in September for their annual Seafood Festival-not only because I love a buttery lobster roll or a fresh crab cake as much as the next person- but because all […]

Mystical, Magical…

When I was a kid, Summer vacations always consisted of at least one trip to Mystic, Connecticut with my family- typically for a day spent at the aquarium, followed by dinner and ice cream at Olde Mistick Village across the street. I’d always come home happy, full of French fries and soft serve- and wanting […]
