Blue Moon

My husband and I got up early and raced outside to try to see the Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse at the 'optimal time' here in Maine (6:45 am)--since it only occurs once every hundred years or so, we didn't want to miss it. And it was up there...behind the trees. So we jumped in the … Continue reading Blue Moon

Bands with husband

This week we were very happy to get to see some of our favorite bands from back in the day. In general, I am not a big fan of going to Boston (especially if it involves driving) for bands, but in this case, there were no Maine or New Hampshire options (at that time) so … Continue reading Bands with husband

Spartanized

This podcast by Jodi Flynn (Women Taking the Lead) with Joe DeSena caught my eye because 1. I love Jodi's Podcasts and 2. My nieces and nephew just completed a Spartan Race (not the first for some of them). Much of the conversation really resonated with me! I was shocked, because whenever I hear about … Continue reading Spartanized

Dance this mess around

My husband and I went to see The B52's last night. As far as date nights go, this was a great one. We stopped to eat on the way to the show at Margarita's. I got a Blood Orange Margarita, and it was AWESOME. Note: There is no photo of the margarita because, sadly, I … Continue reading Dance this mess around

Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 1

Last year I had a blast doing a Birthday Week CakeWalk. I had a different cake for every day leading up to my birthday. Ā Seven cakes in seven days! Yay! Never heard of this? That's because I made this up (hmm, maybe I should trademark that term...). I had a lot of fun. I also … Continue reading Birthday Week CakeWalk (BWCW) Day 1

A dream come true

I have always loved the library since I was a little girl. My dad would drive me every week and I would load up my arms with as many books as I could carry, and then stack them all around my bed when I got home, deciding which one to read first. I was beyond … Continue reading A dream come true
