Signs of Spring

We are buried under a half-foot of snow in eastern Pennsylvania, but this week still showed some early signs of spring. Yes, I know that technically spring is still over a month away, but a girl can dream of warm, sunny days even in February, right? 😉 Wednesday was beautiful – 61℉ with mostly sunny […]

Savoring the Spring Green

Spring is in full bloom in NC (and much of the east coast, I would imagine). My favorite part of spring is being able to spend more time outdoors, whether that is a simple walk around the neighborhood or a trip to the farmers market. Late last summer, I finally joined my family–all major golf […]

Baseball is Back!

Opening Day. One of my very favorite days of the year. Full of hope, optimism for the year ahead. The media has analyzed every player, every stat, and have made their predictions, but none of the that matters now. Now, all that matters is the game. Two days in, and the hope is still alive. […]

A Quick Weekend Getaway

Sometimes, you just need to get away, even if it is January. Or, more likely, especially in January. 😉 It is no secret that I could spend all day, every day at the beach, so when Hubby suggested a January getaway to the beach, I jumped at it! After all, Carolina beaches in January aren’t […]

A Bit of December Sun

The days are getting shorter and the countdown to Christmas is in single digits, but you wouldn’t know it from the weather on the east coast. From what I understand, the west coast is making up for it with record lows and a good amount of snow. As far as I am concerned, they can […]

Fall with Friends and Family

One of the hardest parts of living in North Carolina is that most of my family and friends are five hundred or so miles away. The second hardest part is missing the lovely colors of fall in the northeast. Sure, the leaves change in North Carolina, too, but it always seemed more dramatic up north–brighter, […]

Beauty of Spring

Just as spring was starting to fully bloom in North Carolina, Hubby, Pup, and I had to make an unexpected trip to Pennsylvania. Because we had an already-scheduled vacation in our hometown a couple of weeks later, I ended up spending three (very cold) weeks sleeping in my childhood bedroom. When we arrived at my […]

Family Rivalries and Opening Day

 One of my favorite days of the year is here again! Yay for Opening Day! I have always been a Phillies fan, but I married a Red Sox fan.  For those of you that follow baseball, you know this is not usually an issue. Philadelphia is an NL Team and Boston is an AL team. […]

Emerging from Hibernation

After a few months in a bubble (also known as my winter hibernation), I’m excited to be getting back out in the world. OK, that sounds like I didn’t leave my house for three months. I did, even though I really didn’t want to. 😉 But, there is something about spring that makes me want […]

The First Signs of Fall

It is only August, but I am already seeing some early signs of fall, my favorite season of the year.  The evenings are getting cooler, the leaves are starting to fall, the kids are, for the most part, back in school.  College football starts this weekend, and the NFL a week later. Major League Baseball […]
