What I’ve been reading this month. 1. Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh — Mostly read in January and finished at the very beginning of the month. The ending makes me cry. So, so beautiful. I appreciate this novel more every time I re-read it. The first time I didn’t quite get it. Now I see […]

My poor sister was somewhat shocked when we announced that we were leaving for the hospital and she had to hold […]
In case you have completely missed it, we’ve been enjoying a record-setting streak of weather here in Massachusetts. The amount of snow that has fallen over the last three weeks is a truly unbelievable 84.2 inches of snow! This is officially the most snow we’ve ever received in a single month, we are now the […]
