    No-bake cookies - Nov 28th, 2010
    I remember the first time I made no-bake cookies for Paul. He came home from work, looked at the plate of cookies on the kitchen counter and made sounds of disgust. Those sounds were louder when I told him what was in them. [more...]

    A birthday remembered - Nov 27th, 2010
    Today isn’t what it’s meant to be. Instead of me baking a cake for Paul’s 49th birthday, I’m stuck remembering that he only made it as far as 47. Instead of him opening cards and presents with the excitement of a small child, I’m left wondering what I would have gotten for him if he was here. [more...]

    11-22-44 = 66 - Nov 23rd, 2010
    Just a quick post to say: Happy 66th birthday to the world’s greatest daddy—EVER!! [more...]

    Happy 235th birthday, USMC! - Nov 10th, 2010
    Since 1775, the United States Marine Corps has been winning battles and defending our nation. On what marks the 235th birthday of the Corps, I want to say that I am proud to be the daughter of two amazing Marines. [more...]

    God bless the USA - Jul 4th, 2010
    On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress of the United States of America signed the Declaration of Independence, announcing their departure from the rule of Great Britain. [more...]

    American pride - Jul 3rd, 2010
    As I was getting ready to head to the homeland for 4th of July weekend, I realized it was high time I switched out handbags. As I’d need to bring my camera and my iPod and loads of candy for the nieces and nephews, I knew it would need to be a slightly larger bag. [more...]

    It’s a party for your head - Jun 5th, 2010
    In honor of the lovely Flik’s 13th birthday tomorrow, I am holding a party for my head* this evening. Oh yes, I am! And I dared—or rather, double-dog dared—the young (er, I mean, nearly-adult) Flik to do the same. [more...]

    Aunt Frances - Mar 16th, 2010
    Sixteen years ago I became an aunt when my eldest sister had her first child. I can’t believe that my sister has a kid old enough to drive! Wow! [more...]

    Happy birthday to me - Feb 21st, 2010
    Today is my 36th birthday and to celebrate, I’ve opened a bottle of bubbly and I’m feasting on caviar, wild salmon, and Alaskan king crab. The house is empty, save for me and the cat. There is soft jazz playing in the background and I’m admiring the way the light glistens off of the lovely ring I’m wearing; a birthday present I purchased for myself at Macy*s. [more...]

    A day at the spa - Feb 21st, 2010
    I’ve just returned home after enjoying my first-ever spa day. It was pure heaven and I can’t believe that in my nearly 36 years of life I’ve never done it before. In fact, other than haircuts and a couple of years when I had fake nails in my 20s, I never had any treatments at a spa or salon until about two years ago when I got my first facial. [more...]
