Travel in a 100 Posts

As I was putting together posts from my most recent trip, I realized that I was about to hit my 100th post. I started this blog as a way to record a month long trip to India for my children when they get older. But now, 2+ years later, it’s turned into a therapeutic way…

My Last Free School Year

This year, as everyone gets ready to go back to school,  our household also went out and bought new lunchboxes, backpacks, and other supplies.  My son this summer made the transition from his pre-school classroom to a Kindergarten – Prep classroom,  where he will spend the next year gaining the skills he needs to go…

Granite Hot Springs Pool

It’s a short ride, only 10 miles off the main road.  Okay, 10 miles of dirt road.  That you really should travel at 20 miles a hour on, though my best friend (who grew up in these parts and was driving a Honda Element, not a rental Jetta), said you can go faster.  I will…

Baptising A Babe

The whole trip to Wyoming happened because I was honored with a special request by my best friend, to be a godmother to her beautiful daughter.  It was a special service, performed by the same pastor who married her, in a small chapel dedicated to Saint Hubert the Hunter in a tiny corner of Wyoming…

My “Me-Time” Vacation

I really wasn’t expecting it to be this way, it was supposed to be a normal New Jersey trip, filled with too many people to see, and the kids out of their element and clinging to me.  But as luck would have it, a few things worked in my favor this time around.  The main…

Family Reunion

A family reunion is always an amazing thing.  Unfortuantly, due to Hurricane Andrew, one family from South Carolina was not able to make it.  Cousin, you were trully missed.   However, we still had quite a group, so I thought I would use some pictures to highlight the day: * All photos were captured by…

2 on 1 – Mama Flies Cross Country Solo

It was the dreaded 5:30 pm flight to the East Coast.  But this time my husband is already there.  After 1 week without him, I was more than ready to give up my single parenting duties.  But to do that, I had one more challenge.  A 5:30 pm solo cross country flight required serious logistics and…

My Expensive Little 2 Year Old

4th of July this year promises to be epic.  My cousin is having a huge pig roast to celebrate her oldest daughter graduating high school and going to college.  Her parents, sister and her family, and brother are all coming in from Honduras to celebrate.  My mom’s sister, her kids, and her kids’ family decided…

A Night in the North End

After three hard days of non stop meetings, difficult presentations, and an all day training, I was ready for a break.  So when a co worker also visiting Boston from San Francisco suggested we go to dinner I was more than willing.   My fellow colleagues from San Francisco were not as familiar with Boston (not…
