well, it sure has been a while.... but i've decided to reclaim this blog and expand my focus. in the last year i went on a fantastic trip to greece, got pregnant, moved to a new place (which has a yard!) and gave birth to the aforementioned baby. so, whoa. my life is definitely in the midst of some major transition right now, and i think i'd like to use this space to cover not just my interest in all things travel related (i still dream of far-off adventures, don't worry), but also my day-to-day activities and family life. so! keep an eye out here for some self-indulgent exploration of very important topics, including gardening, cooking, crafting, pop culture, and baby fashion. 'cause that's where i am these days.
