Everything’s (Not) Happening

Hi everybody. Wow. It’s been a minute. Well, it’s been a few months but it might as well have been a few decades. Every day is a long time lately. My job wrapped up right before Thanksgiving, and Sam and I decided to take a quick post-turkey trip to Maui. Right before we left, Sam Adams took a real turn in the kidney department. On … Continue reading Everything’s (Not) Happening

Paris, J’Barfed [Travel Recap]

I was going to call this post something like “C’est La Vie, Paris,” but let’s be honest, “J’Barfed” is a hilarious turn of phrase. I really did barf — multiple times — on our second-to-last night. But no hard feelings, Paris. So it took me a few weeks to hit the blog with news of our trip, because I was still processing and feeling unwell. … Continue reading Paris, J’Barfed [Travel Recap]

But the more I see, the more I affirm … Continue reading FOMOOJPB (Fear of Missing Out On Japanese Popcorn Buckets)

Delicious Five, aka March Gladness

Over the weekend, Sam had what seemed to be food poisoning. It was weird, because we’d eaten the exact same thing for dinner the night before. But I was like, hey, dodged a bullet! It turned out that bullet was likely the norovirus, and it hit me two days later. I will not go into detail about that experience, because ultimately this post is going … Continue reading Delicious Five, aka March Gladness

Food-Lessons From Our Honeymoon

When we chose to go to Salzburg and Italy for our honeymoon, we were definitely going with a wander around, follow-the-food approach. In Salzburg we planned to beer garden it up, and in Italy we planned to… I mean, eat Italian food. That’s pretty simple. And it was pretty easy to follow our stomachs as we booked our trip. The agriturismo we stayed at in Tuscany was … Continue reading Food-Lessons From Our Honeymoon
