  After two weeks and a half weeks in NYC  I was very spoiled with all the  good food.  I could pretty much walk home from work and decide whether I wanted to roll into the Whole Foods in Union Square or just stop somewhere along the way and pick something up or better yet, [...]

A common conversation in our household: Me:  I’m so tired Stefan: From what? Me: From Life!! What am I so tired from?  From going back and forth to London 3 days a week for 10 months, that made me tired.  So now that’s over.  It’s not a sustainable way of life.  I know that.  So [...]

Mexican Mondays by Lauren

December 7, 2010

Ever since we returned from Rome its been snowing in Amsterdam. It reminds me of my days at Syracuse where I trudged through the snow in my construction worker Timberlands, dressed in flannel shirts and bundled in puffy coats, hats and mits.  The white pillowy flakes dropped from the gray sky sideways creating 3ft snow [...]
