Alps – BTD eating on a tour

When we booked our trip, my Honorable Husband was having serious digestive problems and was still on a gluten and dairy free diet.

Pumpkins and Leaves

As I was driving, I noticed how all the trees lining the streets are turning beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow. This is my favorite time of year.

Alps & European Toilets

We are back from a vacation in the Alps. I had hoped to blog while we were there, but wifi was often slow. That plus warnings that I would be wise to keep a low internet and social media profile while we were out of the country changed my plan. Now that I am home […]

Re-establishing a Routine. Again.

It feels like I’m always blogging about starting a routine or getting organized- yet most of these routines seem to fall apart after a while. A few months ago, I blogged about making a family lunch instead of a family dinner. That worked really well- that one time. I did it one other time and […]
