So get off the internet (yes, even if it’s my blog) and go pay your respects. I suggest hanging out with a handsome soldier, if the opportunity presents itself.

The hubby and I are trying to find the humor in the fact that we’ve been at home for the last few weeks and the weather’s been uncharacteristically miserable the entire time. I mean, that’s funny, right? No. No, it’s not. And it’s not the only thing that’s been dragging me down: NASA’s footage of…

I remember reading in one of Anthony Bourdain’s books (and I can’t for the life of me remember which, so don’t ask), about the time he and his brother went to the their (deceased) father’s village in France. And as they walked the tiny streets and explored the seaside, they realized something was absent from…

Rand and I headed to Florida last month, since he had some work to do there. Heading back there is always a strange experience: I lived in Florida from the middle of second grade to halfway through my freshman year of high-school. Formative years, to be sure, sandwiched between my life in Washington. The result…

I am in a great mood this morning. A stupidly-happy, wonderful mood. Because yesterday, Rand came home. And if you read Thursday’s post about my sleepless nights without my hubby, you know what this means – that last night, I slept EIGHT AND A HALF FULL HOURS. It was awesome. So, TGIF. And TGRH (Thank…

SF Ross photo by Rojer, via Flickr.com. Kids, I’m beginning to worry. I suspect (though I have no real proof) that, like green eyes and being able to roll your tongue, being a magnet for crazy people is genetically predetermined. Such is true of my mother (though really, she may be more attracted to crazy…

  • It's hard for me to even begin to describe Rand's Uncle Doig. During the war, Rand's grandmother Ruth and her father were trying to flee Europe. They got stuck in England, where her Jewish-Austrian father was mistaken for a German, and thus an enemy combatant. He was sent to a POW camp and Ruth was adopted by an English family - Doig's family. (She and her father would be reunited after the war.) Now in his 90s, Doig remains a keeper of family lore, a hopeless romantic, and a wonderful flirt.
  • "Jeff Goldblum? I haven't heard that name in years."
  • Video games are riveting. And confusing.
  • Green tea latte and 70 degrees at 7am. We're reached peak southern California, friends.
  • So awkward that the two loves of my life would meet like this. #jeffgoldblum
  • These are a few of my favorite things.
  • The torrential rains gave way to ... slightly less rain? Alas.
  • I don't even know how to describe how lovely this place is. #edinburghcastle #edinburgh #scotland
  • Aaaand then the sun came out and everything was beautiful. #scotland #edinburgh
  • Scotland, I'd really love to explore, but I'm getting the feeling you want me to stay in and do some work today.
