Places I’ve Been: Brighton, England

May 15

The looming stress of our upcoming move {T minus 54 days and counting} to only-God-knows-where sends me looking for my happy place at least once every hour.┬áToday, I’m remembering Brighton, England.

Clark and I call it a “do-over”. Can I have one please?

BTW, That needs to make a come-back in all S’bucks everywhere, don’t you think? {Any To Do #394: Send BBW...

This requires some creativity because our plans involve two small children who are just as satisfied going to Pet Smart to watch the fish as they would be going to the Georgia Aquarium. The only...

  Some friends of ours just returned from Israel. I have been living vicariously through their stories as I have never been to that part of the world. While Clark and I were on a date last weekend, and he told me that he wants to go… soon… as in next year… as in while our children are still small… as in I couldn’t swallow my salsa just thinking about traveling...
