Happy friday readers! Next friday (technically early saturday morning) I am leaving Mexico which is a sentence I can’t believe I just typed. We’re going to have to process that somewhere else. But for now, some reads. One of my favorite foodbloggers, the Amateur Gourmet (and the first food blog I followed back in 2008 or 9) went to Germany as part of a Eurotrip … Continue reading Reading the internet, week 6
I’m back (after almost two weeks in America). I didn’t want to let this blog go without posts about my final two trips, which I count as one epic journey.

Last night the entire family came over minutes … Continue reading Long Days and a Week in the Life
