I’m out of town yet again this week and next – I will sincerely try to get some posts up and ready to go for that time, but if I don’t, I have a reasonable excuse: I was in the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkeling. With my husband. Yeah. YEAH. I know. I’m probably snuggling with…

– Leaving the Kloof was hard. I’m not even going to pretend otherwise. It was blissful and beautiful and it pulled at my heartstrings a little to leave. Driving away, it felt like it was the last day of camp, or the morning after a really great slumber party (you know, the ones where no…

– Remember episode of The Simpsons where Marge decides to take a vacation by herself and ends up at Rancho Relaxo? Most of you are probably nodding enthusiastically. Others might have vague recollections of it. And a select few might be shaking your heads and saying, “I’ve never really watched The Simpsons.” That latter group, of course,…

– When I first starting dating Rand, during my junior year of college (for those of you keeping track at home, it was approximately a lifetime ago), I lived in a windowless apartment. I may be exaggerating slightly. It wasn’t exactly windowless – it had three, to be precise. But each and every one of…

The first day of spring was on Wednesday, and Seattle’s weather almost seems to be complying with the season. Which I guess means I’m going to cave and shave my legs. Probably. Maybe. Eh … there’s a fifty-fifty chance. You know what? I’m just gonna wait it out. If it gets warm, I can wear…

Last month, we popped down to Portland for the weekend, with our pal Chrissy in tow. We’d been meaning to head down to PDX together for a while – our friend Skye had moved back out west after living in Baltimore for the last two years. I couldn’t remember the last time we’d all been…

WTF Weds: Miracle Berries

– The other day, I was lamenting to myself (and by extension, to my long-suffering husband) about the death of wonderment in my adult years. How there were now so many known variables in our lives, so many answered questions. There were very few decisions to make. Very little was new. “I just remember high…

  • After the last train leaves, Venice becomes a ghost town. It's creepy and wonderful and obviously haunted.

  • Went to visit Mandova today, where a rich nobleman built a palace for his mistress. This room was where he took guests before the orgies. This revelation caught me by surprise, but Rand noted that there wasn't a lot else for rich people to do in the 16th century. It was mostly food and orgies.

  • And then the cute little old couple walked into the scene and life felt like a movie.
  • I will never get over the fact that hundreds of years ago my ancestors built a city on water, and it is still here. Next time I doubt myself, I need to remember that anything is possible if you are willing to get your feet wet.
