Amsterdam is one of the cleanest, most efficient cities that I have ever visited. Andrew and I were there for 3 days we did not set a foot in one single art museum….I know right. How could we not see the Dutch Masters in person?!?!?! We were having too much fun enjoying the food, the […]

24 Hours in NYC

You know those t-shirts that say I heart NY? I feel like they were more popular in the 1980s and 90s , in fact I didn’t see one vender selling them on the streets when Andrew and I were there last weekend. Well I used to have one, I made my parents buy me one […]

Friday Night Stromboli

What a week! There was a powerful storm here on Sunday that left most of Southern Maine without power and left Andrew and I without…. the internet. For four whole days we had no Netflix, cable, AmazonPrime, Pinterest…nothing. We managed to survive by playing games and Redbox rentals, thank goodness for Redbox!  In all seriousness […]

Bandaloop

This past week was a long one. Between 80 degree weather, meetings, open house and a new student starting I was in need of either a vat of wine or something super fun by the time Friday finally came.  Thankfully I live in a city that loves the arts and often has free events, Friday […]

Ooh la la Crêpes!

Below are the savory crêpes or galettes that Andrew and I ate in France.  He […]

Salade Niçoise

I cannot believe that we are halfway through August already! Summers in Maine are the best and I am  thoroughly enjoying my time off. Going back to work in a couple of weeks is going to be a difficult adjustment for sure. In between beach runs and lunches with friends, I’ve been making some really […]
