The Discerning Epicure

In April I celebrated a pretty huge milestone birthday. I’ve been celebrating throughout – with celebrations still to come – as one should for such an occasion. The best part? They’ve all involved food (thank goodness I calorie count, or I’d have ballooned by this point!). Since I’ve done more eating than writing I’ll be […]

Out for a run

At the start of the year I had set myself 4 running goals and I completed my first goal of a sub 20min 5k. I had also been running with my friend David as he was training for the London Marathon, away from running I was just waiting to finish my job and start a […]

Here’s a sentiment I never thought I’d have: I love breastfeeding. When I was younger, I didn’t expect ever to have kids. I also hated having female anatomy for quite a long time, so breastfeeding seemed uncomfortable and absurd. Once I got pregnant, however, it became unquestionable in my mind that I would breastfeed.

Vanished World

In the early afternoon of 24 April, my friends and I reached Brest, one of the biggest cities in Belarus and known for the peace negotiations at the end of World War I and its uncompromising resistance against the invading German forces in World War II. En route were Jewish heritage sites in Pruzhany, Sharashova […]

The Daily Randonneur

Hi folks. I’m back to break my long stretch of not blogging. Frankly, it’s easier and faster to just post our latest adventures to Instagram in real time vs. coming up with a compelling narrative. And, Mary usually posts on our rides at her blog Chasing Mailboxes long before I get around to my own […]

Do not miss their ears with the famous song by Yves Montand in 1968 on a music by Francis Lai and lyrics by Pierre Barouh. Contemporary singers inspired by the great cycling races have nothing to do with this era, where François Truffaut's France hummed: "When we left early in the morning / When we […]

My Beautiful Disaster

I think when it comes to any product, preferences will vary. Twin moms have two choices, the TwinZ pillow and the My Brest friend Twin Plus Breastfeeding Pillow. I was blessed to be gift the My Brest Friend at my baby shower and found the TwinZ lightly used for only $15! They both have their […]
