… Or so it felt.
London is the home of the 2012 Olympics, and as a result they’re trying to improve the city’s infrastructure. While that’s great for them, what it meant for me is that the three lines that went from the stop where I was staying, to the stop […]
… Or so it felt.
King’s Cross/St. Pancras station
Spent 3.5 days in London last week. If you are thinking that doesn’t sound like a long time, you’re right. Though unintentionally I stumbled upon the best means of international travel. Deprive yourself of sleep before you go, then stay up once you get there and you’ll […]
Shortly before Easter a coworker and I went to Billy’s Cupcakes in NYC. While we were there she told me about these awesome cake lollipops she had gotten from her mom. When she returned to work after the holiday weekend she had one for me as well. Turned out one […]
When I first started knitting i bought a lot of stuff. It’s a common problem for new knitters, we get excited, don’t know what we need but we want everything so we go a little crazy. I decided that I was no longer going to buy books that had just […]

aka massive pain in the… but with pain comes beauty? This morning was one of those shoving room only days on the PATH. Add delays to that mix and my claustrophobia was bordering on a full fledged panic attack. By the time I got to my stop, I was more […]
Even though it’s April, I still think these pics are worth posting. Those who know me, know that rather than buy presents for the holidays, I prefer to give the gift of homemade goodies. Every year I take 3-4 days to make candies, fudges and cookies and package them in […]
I’m not embarrassed to admit, I’m from New Jersey. In fact, I’m quite proud that I’m from New Jersey. My state does have a bit of a bad reputation but some of us like it that way. If people knew how beautiful parts of NJ really were we’d be even […]
