Ringing in 2014: Outdoor Fun in New Hampshire

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, Kendra and I prefer quiet celebration, so when our friends Meg and Marcy invited us to spend the holiday in a cottage in the woods of New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest, we jumped at the opportunity. Meg booked us two cabins at Sunnybrook Cottages, a small, family […]

24 Hours of Epic Fails

Kendra and I spent most of our school vacation week apart – she ran a poetry camp for middle and high school kids, while I took members of the high school Outdoor Adventure Club to western Massachusetts for a winter adventure. Though we both got lots of time with Addison, we had very little time […]

Addie watching the chef prepare food at Bollywood Grill.

Adventures In Dining Out With A Toddler

Tonight Kendra and I decided we were in the mood for Indian food. When I lived in Boston, good Indian food could be found in every neighborhood. Out in the burbs, it’s not as easy to find. Undeterred, we bundled up Addie, and headed to Bollywood Grill. Addie has had Indian leftovers before, and loved […]

Hiking in the White Mountains

Thwarted by Irene

On Thursday afternoon, Kendra and I left school as the bell rang and headed to pick up Addie at daycare. Having packed the car that morning, we were ready to drive up north to Dolly Copp Campground in New Hampshire. Having been spared by Hurricane Irene, we hadn’t bothered to triple-check and make sure the […]

Buck's of Woodside in CA.

Redwood City and a Wedding!

Kendra decided we should go out to eat for breakfast this morning, so Jen took us to Buck’s of Woodside. Located in an unassuming cluster of shops, the interior was completely unexpected. Nostalgia lined the walls and ceiling. The food was excellent – Kendra and Jen (that looks weird when I am not the Jen […]

The Silver Bean

As we drove out of Mesa Verde today, Kendra caught site of the coolest coffee shop we’ve ever seen! Located in Cortez, Colorado, the Silver Bean is housed in a vintage Airstream trailer.

The Peddler's old smoker

The Peddler

Tonight Boris sent us on a date to The Peddler Steak House, “Greenville’s most unique dining experience since 1969.” I can’t even remember the last time Kendra and I went out to dinner, just the two of us. The building, a 100 year-old stone and wood construction, was beautiful. It reminded me a bit of […]

J.C. Strouble at The Beacon in Spartenburg, SC

The Fates Sent Me a Beacon

It’s not often a post on my Facebook news feed is as applicable to my life as one from NPR the other day. However, yesterday there was a post about food joints that politicians go to when campaigning in South Carolina. It caught my eye because we are actually IN South Carolina at the moment. […]

The Good Day Cafe in North Andover, MA.

The Good Day Cafe – Hooray!

Addison woke us up early today, so Kendra and I decided to take her for a walk to a fairly new café in our neighborhood – The Good Day Cafe. I was psyched to go check the place out, as yesterday Kendra brought me one of their cappuccinos and a yogurt parfait. Given I am […]

For the last couple of years, Kendra and I have been frequenting a little hole in the wall in Methuen – Norm’s White Horse. The first time I drove by it, I thought it was a sketchy place for old men to drink beers and ogle the ladies – there are no windows on the […]
