Let’s have more love affairs.

I miss New York City. I miss our well-worn apartment, its ramshackle window AC units and impossible-to-regulate radiator heaters. I miss its tiny kitchen, even tinier bathrooms, haggard floors, barred windows and all. I miss our Mahmoud, who runs the Middle-Eastern food cart on our street corner. Once, at bedtime, Cam and I were discussing […]

South Africa

~Note~ I remember my sister Molly writing in her first post about Africa that she had no idea where to begin or how to fully capture her experiences there. It’s so true. Africa is this majestic, dreamlike place that deserves more than words and pictures. Those expressions just can’t capture its richness, beauty and depth. […]

25 Days of Christmas, Days 1 through 5

Well, I have so much to tell you, but I’ll start with 5 days worth of my 25 days of Christmas updates. If you didn’t read my last post, I got the 25 days of Christmas idea from a fellow blogger, Courtney, on her blog, Baby Boogies. In short, I’m trying to do something engaging […]

If you’re not familiar with the layout of Manhattan (I still don’t have it fully painted in my my mind by heart yet, and I’m a resident), […]

Thoughts and goings on

I’ve found myself doing a lot of complaining lately. A lot. About my overwhelming and ubiquitous list of to-dos. I need to potty-train Cam. I need to set up a grocery delivery service. We’re spending ungodly amounts of money on takeout and daily mini-trip to Whole Foods and the Hispanic grocery mart downstairs. (I’ve found […]

Five interactions to keep your inner dragon at bay

Last weekend, I did a little calculating.  I’ve been pregnant or nursing for more than two years now which means my social life has also been very limited for more than two years. So naturally, I took it out on Mike.  He came home from work on Friday and said, “I forgot to mention I’m […]
