Playing With Rocks at Rocks!

Posted by 8 months ago 6 Comments 3581 views

Way back when we started this blog (has it really been 2 years?) I published a post called Making Travel a Priority.  In it I said: …to me, travel is a synonym for living life outside of the daily grind. It’s about date nights with the husband, day trips with the kids, and seeing concerts with friends. It’s […]

Celebrating 12 Years at Clementine

Posted by 2 years ago 3 Comments 500 views

Today is my 12th wedding anniversary. I keep saying it over and over because I honestly can’t believe it. This was us a few days before our wedding in 2001. We’re so young and “huggy.” This is us Friday night. We’re so happy and “smiley.” Oh and full! We just finished dinner at a new-to-us […]

It’s hard to believe it’s Friday already. Time sure did fly this week, and I can’t help but think all our plans and experiences accelerated things. Today is officially our last day of the Spring Break Staycation, but we have quite a weekend planned with the circus on Sunday and possibly a movie Saturday night! […]

The 7-Year-Old’s Spring Break Staycation: Day 4

Posted by 2 years ago 4 Comments 255 views

Considering it’s APRIL, I was really hoping for warmer weather today, but we were stuck with chilly low 50s. At least it was sunny and the wind tame. We packed our lunch, bundled up and hit the local trails. We live about 2 miles from one of the Gunpowder Falls State Park parking areas and […]

The 7-Year-Old’s Spring Break Staycation: Day 3

Posted by 2 years ago 7 Comments 335 views

Today’s fun excursion was completely The 7-Year-Old’s idea, and I must admit, I was shocked. We’ve gone rock wall climbing before, and although he’s always eager to go, his fear of heights kicks in about 6 feet up the wall. He asked if his friend could join us and I was all for it. Maybe […]

It’s Day 2 of The 7-Year-Old’s Fabulous Spring Break Staycation and we were all about The Maryland Science Center. We headed out a little before 10 a.m. and the boys were ready! The Science Center is in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor area. It’s actually a cinch to get to and in a pedestrian friendly area. This […]

The 7-Year-Old’s Spring Break Staycation: Day 1

Posted by 2 years ago 8 Comments 428 views

Growing up in Pennsylvania, there was no such thing as Spring Break, at least not until college. In grade and high school the only full week I remember having off was Christmas, and with all the hoopla of the holiday we never did anything out of the ordinary. Now that I live in Maryland I’m […]

Staying true to my commitment of making travel a priority, I decided to surprise The Husband on a night out this Saturday. My goal was to seduce him with a movie he really wanted to see (Looper) and then convince him to try a new restaurant. I didn’t care which new restaurant. I just wanted […]

Staying true to my definition of and commitment to “travel,” The Husband and I headed out last night to kick off one crazy busy weekend. It was worth it. My friend Jim Doran was in his first ever solo art show and I just had to go. He’s not only a good friend but his […]

Pairings: Wine for Dummies

Posted by 3 years ago 6 Comments 2328 views

I’m not a wine person. There’s a few words that kind of sound familiar when wine people talk, like Sauvignon, Riesling and Port, but everything else might as well be a foreign language. I’m better at translating the teacher’s wah wah wah from Charlie Brown than understanding a sommelier. And yes, I had to google […]
