Italian Kitchen

We recently took my boyfriend’s Mother for her birthday dinner at Italian Kitchen. I am the only one who’d eaten there before and, not that I didn’t enjoy the company or my meal (because how could I not?), but I was sooooo excited about dessert that it was a bit of a challenge to remain […]

Morning Commute

I take the train to work each morning. Much of the ride is in a tunnel underground, so the view is non-existent. Emerging to this beautiful sunrise has to be a sign of a good day to come, right?

My parents, wanting to take advantage of the recent warmer temperatures and break in Autumn rain, had their trailer riverside for one last hurrah of camping over the weekend.
