Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

A triumphant return?

I know. I have been a missing person for a long while.

There were about 2,286,957 reasons for my absence.

We have all been sick since mid-February.

We had a swarm of bees.

We had no internet access for four full business days.

And then we all got sick again.

Weeks slipped by and I wrote drafts, but posted nothing.

 At some point, I may go back and cover the past few months. I don't know.

So, here we are.

April 1st.

April Fool's Day.

Seven years ago I called Mr. Smith. Thankfully, he took the call and we went on our first date. I could not let this anniversary pass without some comment.

I won't say that it has all been hearts and roses. There is never a dull moment, but I would not change any of it.


In unrelated news, last weekend we had a full day of rain, even hail at one point.

Grand Master H and Famous Baby C jumped in puddles.




Filled their boots with fresh rain.



Emptied their boots.


And then called it quits.

All this to tell you that I am back.

I will be making more regular posts again. Thanks for waiting.
