In light of recent events (heh – it seems everyone is starting off their posts this way!), I am choosing to no longer participate in “In My Mailbox” going forward. I tried staying out of it as much as I could, and Parajunkee probably put it best. That being said, I discovered Tynga‘s new meme while looking […]

Weekly Photo Challenges – Sun & Together

Since I missed last week’s, I thought I’d do both last & this week’s together. Last week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge theme was: Sun; and this week’s theme is: Together! For Sun, I took this in the morning yesterday on the way to work. It was a very “diffused” look to the light in the […]

Birthday Thoughts

I thought I’d take today to look back at my first year of being in my 30’s. Unlike many, I actually looked forward to turning 30 last year. Maybe because I don’t look it and take some glee at the reactions from people when I tell them how old I am, or that I’ve always […]

Review: Sacré Bleu by Christopher Moore

Being a big fan of Christopher Moore’s Lamb, I was really excited for his newest book – coincidentally timed with my Paris Month! The best part was that I brought this with me on my trip, so as I was finishing the book, I had actually gone to some of the areas that were talked about […]
