Lately

I apologize for my absence lately. Between starting a new job, finding a place to live, and adjusting to life back in Fayetteville, I’ve not had much time to spend in front of my computer. The hubs is back at his old job working as a legal assistant, while I’ve taken a job in Public […]

New England Lobster Rolls

New Englanders take their lobster rolls seriously. There’s a science to this meal, and everyone has their own solution. Some like it warm, and some like it cold. Some like their meat frisked with mayo, and others like it naked¬† with a side of drawn butter. Some like only tail meat, while others enjoy the […]

Je T’aime, Paris

For as long as I can remember, I have loved all things Paris. I can’t recall what started this obsession, but when I was 13 years old, I decided to paint my room hot pink, decorating my walls with Parisian icons. During holidays, I’d always receive French-related gifts, and I started studying the language in […]

Lemon-Rosemary Butter Cookies

The weather was unseasonably cool here last week. With highs only reaching 80 and nightly lows dropping into the 50’s, the weather had me craving winter squashes and toasty drinks. As much as I love the fall, and as happy as I was about the weather, I was feeling a bit cheated. It has been […]

Herb-Infused Simple Syrup

There’s a lot that I love about being back in the South. The people are friendlier, for one, and I don’t always feel so rushed to get things done. ¬†People move a bit slower around here, which often annoys me, but it’s a nice change of pace. I went to the post office the other […]

Hello From Venice

Setbacks are bound to happen while on vacation. They never fail. Although we’ve had a few close calls, we’ve always been able to work with the snafus that have threatened to ruin our day. We almost got stranded in the middle of nowhere Germany one night, but after a mad dash, we hopped our train […]

Hello From Switzerland

Since my last post, we’ve visited the beer capital of the world, drank a liter at the Hofbrauhaus, saw a concentration camp, visited a fairy tale castle, and hiked the Swiss Alps. The Bernese Alps are the kind of place where you wouldn’t be suprised if a deer talked to you, if a bird sang […]

Hello From Germany

It’s hard to believe that 10 days have passed since we left the states. Our days have been filled with museums, monuments, and lots of great food. We’ve seen some of the world’s best artwork and architecture, and have dined on some of the most delicious cuisines. We are becoming professional picnickers, and our settings […]

Sauerkraut and Goodbye

Last night we locked the door to #20 one last time. We stood and stared at the empty space, reflecting on the moments shared in our sweet little home. Closing my eyes, I saw an apartment filled with beautiful memories. Maybe it’s because I’ve never moved much before, or maybe it’s because of the things […]

Meet Cate

This is Cate, my darling and talented friend. Isn’t she precious? Cate is one of those people who you just long to be around. Her happiness is contagious, and her kind spirit won me over. I still remember the first time I met her. It wasn’t long after we moved here. The hubs and I […]

So Long, Farewell

As much as I’ve avoided admitting it, this is sadly our last week living in Boston. We’ve finished what we moved here for, and now it is time for us to move on. We don’t know exactly what is next for us, but we are excited to find out. For now, we have one last […]
