It is cold here right now. We have had a fairly mild winter until the last week or so and I am ready for it to warm up again. I am counting down the months until summer! Thinking about warm weather got me thinking about our trip to Boston last summer. It was a business […]
We are big fans of eating out. We don’t do it every night, or even once a week, but when we learned we were pregnant we decided that we wouldn’t let it stop us from going out and doing the things we love. I once read a book that suggested that when you have a […]
