Good Morning from Pittsburgh!

Yes, we’re traveling again. My husband went to college in western Pennsylvania, and his parents grew up in the Pittsburgh area, so he’s been wanting to bring us out here to show us around for years. Recently he got it in his head that he wanted to take our son to a Pirates-Phillies game, so...

Weekend in Williamsburg & A Wedding

Evidently, the Traverse brought the rain, and took it back with it.  This gloomy weather seems to be letting up, now that my fun car is gone.  At least I got a real sense for how it operates on slick surfaces.  I even got to test out the heated seats this morning, once I figured...

You Know It’s Good When They Have To Roll You To Your Car

In honor of our 13th wedding anniversary, my parents babysat on Thursday night so Hub and I could have a date.  Always the info junkie, I perused the internet until I came up with the perfect place for our celebratory dinner — Maggie’s Restaurant in Bar Harbor.  Two of every three reviews I read mentioned...
