Mostly Pictures, Some Videos

My ability to write seems to have dried up. I just can’t find the mental space for it somehow. Perhaps it’s that trying to figure out a new routine is taking up all my resources. I’m finding time to read, but writing, not so much. Which is sad, but what can you do. I’ll just […]

Anthony is Two

He’s one cool kid Yesterday was Anthony’s birthday. I can hardly believe that he’s two already. And yet he’s as big as many three year olds.

What Lucia Wore on Sunday*

Blizzard 2013

So you may have heard we had a little storm this weekend. Turns out it was one of the top ten snow falls since 1892, number five to be exact. (Why 1892? I have no idea.) Funny thing is I’ve been here for four of the top ten and I’ve only lived here for twelve […]
