Postcards from the Scottish Highlands

Postcards from the Scottish Highlands

So many pictures can’t describe the beauty of the Scottish Highlands, but hopefully they make an impression. After getting a glimpse of the eastern side of the country last summer, Mom couldn’t wait to go back and see more, and I was more than happy to oblige. Truth […]

Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday! I’m not going to lie that it feels so good to be home, as much as I love love being out and about in the world, I also love lazy weekends, with fall Saturdays that involve meal prep, Crawley time and college football. […]

A Day in Edinburgh

A Day in Edinburgh

It’s time to tell a story, and aren’t travel stories just the best ones to tell? This trip, #OurMilesThroughtheIsles, almost didn’t happen. Mom and I had been talking about it, but not yet planning it, since last year.  However, when she got sick in February, this […]

Hello, Sunday.  Mom and I are heading home from #OurMilesThroughtheIsles adventures, in tact, but with perhaps a few more grey hairs for each of us. I managed to successfully drive on the left, accident free! Now, for the long day home. A few nuggets managed […]

Hello, Sunday. Hello, September! It’s here! And while the weather may not be getting you in the zone just yet, college football no doubt is, so let’s cook up some of Mom’s best chili and get it going. Speaking of Mom, we’re in Scotland at […]

Peach Upside Down Bread Pudding

Peach Upside Down Bread Pudding

We’re coming to the end of summer! What? How? WHY? I mean, I love me some fall, some cozy blankets, warm non-pumpkin-spice beverages and the prospect of cozying up to a nice fire watching the snow fall outside sooner rather than later.  I haven’t taken […]

Hello, Sunday. Hello, friends! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve been around, but I’ve gotten a bit of normal back before I pack it up again for my trip with Mom later this week. ICYMI, we’re heading to Scotland, where we’ll be driving […]

This is 37

This is 37

Hey guys. Thanks for being patient with me during the last month. It’s been a crazy whirlwind of life and sometimes, you all draw the short straw. But, now that life has returned to some semblance of calm and normal, food will once again come […]

Summer Squash Chilaquiles

Summer Squash Chilaquiles

You guys. I’ve been running around like a crazy person all week and I am so over it. Oh, hey, I turned 37 and between my actual hustle and my two side ones, this one took the hit. I apologize. Part of the issue was […]

Hello, Sunday. I’ve had such a nice weekend celebrating my birthday (37 this week…yup) with my friends and family. Tennis, eating, swimming, eating, cake…all the things that make having a summer birthday great. Even if it’s not your birthday, I hope your weekend was full of […]

See the World: Ann Arbor

See the World: Ann Arbor

Ya’ll, I’ve lived in Ann Arbor for over a year and I can’t even believe it.  I guess time flies…well, you know how it goes. For the girl who swore up and down back in 2007 that I’d live in Chicago until my twilight years, […]

See the World: A Weekend in San Diego

See the World: A Weekend in San Diego

Hey dudes and dudettes!  Sorry, I must still be feeling those California vibes (though, no one that I met in California talked like that, so maybe I’m feeling the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle vibes). Anyhoo, I spent essentially one weekend in San Diego and managed […]

A Night in Paradise, Vietnam

A Night in Paradise, Vietnam

When planning our trip, Lettuce, Yam and I decided that we’d obviously need to unwind from our frenzied itinerary, so we booked ourselves into luxury, the perfect way to spend our last night in Vietnam before parting ways back to reality and the dreadfully long […]
