Nothing fulfills your sense of self-accomplishment like flying with three kids. As you know, (or maybe you don’t, in which case you haven’t been paying attention) I took the girls to New York City this past weekend for spring break.   It also  coincided with Fia’s 6th birthday and she wanted to go to the American […]

Taking a writing hiatus while playing tourist in NYC. Lots of fun stories to come. Hang in there. . .

I spent a blissful evening alone, preparing for the early morning race that I had looked forward to for months.  I laid out my clothes, set the coffee machine, planned breakfast and went to bed.  At ten.  Which as many of you know, is unheard of for me. My slumber was interrupted by a ringing […]
