My family had the great fortune of being invited to witness Nicky and Brett’s wedding.  Nicky and I have been friends since the first grade, and I was so glad that Marc and I were able to share this big day with her.  As I mentioned, she has been struck with major tragedy, losing both […]


Wedding weekend

23May09

Marc and I breezed into town this weekend for my friend Nicky’s wedding.  She has had a rough time of things lately, and we are SO excited to be there for her and for her special day.  I know it is going to be wonderful for her, and I can’t wait to post pictures. We […]


My mom finished up her trip to Massachusetts with a road trip to New Jersey.  We headed to New Jersey for my sister’s graduation; she finished her Master’s degree in Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University. This was my first Master’s degree ceremony (I did not attend my own — I finished in […]


What a week!!

03May09

This has been an incredibly crazy busy week and it’s only going to continue to be full of excitement, changes and events. We started the week off with incredibly high temperatures.  Monday was in the 80s and Tuesday was excruciatingly hot–in the 90s already.  It was a fluke, though, and the heat was gone by […]


My brother is making a movie.  It’s not his first movie, but it IS his first feature-length film.  He’s working REALLY hard on it and the script is freakin’ phenomenal.  I’m pretty sure that when it comes out, it’ll change your life.  Until that time, though, you can follow his blog:   http://sweetmintmovie.wordpress.com   Enjoy!


Settling in

28Jan09

Job has been with us for just a few days and I have to say, he’s fitting in quite nicely.  He is still a pretty tired boy, sleeping a lot of the evening and some of the day, but I think that that is just from adjustment, and also probably some bliss, given that he […]


Marc and I are SO excited and pleased to welcome the newest addition to our family.  He’s three years old, with black hair, brown eyes, and cute brown markings on his paws and face.  It’s our little min pin (miniature pinscher), Job! As you know, we’ve been talking about getting a dog for a REALLY […]


Dog news

17Jan09

Marc and I have been jonesing after the idea of getting a dog for some time now.  We have been super responsible in the thought process–making sure we’d find a good time to get a dog, after we owned our own place and in a time after the holidays, when we’d be home and not […]


Beer Bread

10Jan09

My dad made a huge feast for us at our Christmas celebration, including this amazing beer bread.  He just sent me the recipe in the mail, and it looked SUPER easy (and it was super good….) so I decided to make it. Neither Marc nor I are extraordinarily experienced in the ways of dough, particularly […]


My Aunty Dorothy passed away last night, a fact that make me deeply sad.  In memory of her, and as a chance to celebrate all of the wonderful things that she was, I decided to write this post. My Aunty Dorothy may not have technically been our family—no one knows if she was related to […]
