Last week I wrote a post about traditional Easter food, wherein I mentioned Pinca, a Croatian Easter Bread. I made it over Easter weekend and it turned out to be delicious! Recipe is adapted from TheHungarianGirl.com. Ingredients 3 packs fresh yeast (.75 ounces/6 tsp) 1 Tbsp sugar 3/4 cups tepid milk 4 cups (500 grams) Read more...

It took me awhile to post this because I honestly did not know where to begin. I have a million thoughts coupled with every emotion physically possible. This post had a very good chance of being 10,000 words ending with a picture of me ugly sobbing. I will try my Read more...

Luxury travel and family travel aren’t often uttered in the same breath. But it certainly doesn’t have to be that way. I write a lot about moms traveling. Everything from Girlfriend Getaways, to solo trips and yes, even family travel with kids. I’m sure it’s no surprise that traveling with kids takes Read more...

My closet smells particularly good at the moment because I have stocked up on my yearly supply of Marfa Brand Soap. This year I may have gone overboard. It’s just too difficult to choose when you’re at the source and have so many options! The the past couple of years I’ve Read more...

It’s been a challenging spring for me in terms of life changes and struggles, and I’ve found as always that the woods are a place that brings me peace and solace. We’ve had a mix of weather here in Massachusetts, which has made springtime hiking that much more…well…muddy. I’ve had Read more...

The windshield wipers were on. I remember that detail. The doctor had just given us the news that I already knew since nausea and complete exhaustion weren’t my M.O. In the last month, I had gone over this so many times. If I was pregnant we would stay. If I Read more...

When the weather gets rainy, I usually keep up my regular training rides, but sometimes soggy feet and stripes up my back just get old. When I desperately need a change of pace, I head right to my favorite class for intense spinning. The first time I went to Flywheel Sports, Read more...

When you think of Napa Valley, you think mainly of wine tasting, picnic lunches, lush vineyards and gourmet dinners. But hiking in Napa Valley wine country is an increasingly popular activity that demands a new verb – namely, “wiking” – where you can taste wine and hike, all in the Read more...

Traveling through Southeast Asia, backpackers are often stopped by vendors selling hand-made jewelry, cold beverages and reprinted paperback books. But because my travel companion’s lower face was covered in a massive beard, and the curls on his head had nearly grown to shoulder length, we were stopped constantly and asked Read more...

Brunch. A wonderful hybrid of breakfast and lunch. It’s as much of an Easter tradition as egg hunts, bonnets, and Sunday church service for lapsed Catholics. After all, who doesn’t love a mouth-watering meal filled with crepes, ham, lamb, Hollandaise sauce, deviled eggs, pavlova, and a virtual cornucopia of delectable Read more...

One of the best things about accommodation in Thailand is that there are so many options. From $3 dorm beds to luxury 5-star suites, there’s definitely something for everyone…and a surprising amount of ‘nice’ places that are still affordable even on a backpacker budget. Yes, you can always pinch pennies Read more...

One of the many perks of moonlighting as a style blogger is that occasionally I get to review products that make me feel like a spy. I wouldn’t be opposed to a carnation lapel that was also a camera, for example, or cute sandals that could transform into roller blades. Read more...

Last year for our wedding, I. Made. This. Brooch. Bouquet! It has an international flair. It has contributions from family and friends. It has my favorite flower, the sunflower.

Now that it’s spring, it’s time to start thinking about camping again. I know you can camp in the winter, but I’m not that hard core, unless by “winter camping” you mean sitting in a cabin stuffing logs into the wood burning stove. This camping season, I’m really excited to Read more...

It’s that time of year; YES, again and YES, already. Sigh. Nomadic skiers must deal with the trials and tribulations of stowing up after a whole season, but these challenges make us killer packers. Over the past couple days, I have stuffed, un-stuffed, huffed and puffed as I fought with Read more...

I’m embarrassed to admit that I don’t get down to Portland nearly as often as I would like. It’s only three hours from Seattle, however, it seems like it’s easier for me to find time to fly to Bangkok than to drive to PDX. Portland is smaller and more laid-back than Read more...

In the spring of 1967, the woman who would become my mother went out to check the mail. She was an 18 year old newlywed. Among the cards and bills was a letter addressed to her new husband from the President of the United States. She probably knew exactly what Read more...
