Four Days in Berlin: Solo Trip 2017


Wrote 2016 first, but whadduyaknow- it’s 2017! I spent the first few days of the year on a little solo winter getaway to Berlin. 😉  (Ok, no one does a “getaway” to Germany, but it was a great trip).  In all honesty, I didn’t love Berlin in the same way that I love many other European […]

A Little Bit of Lately.


I feel like I have been writing so many “topic” posts, that I haven’t done any “life” posts in quite some time.  A.k.a…pictures that are taking up space on my iPhone…most of which is food.   First up, Luis and I had this really delicious meal at Petit Apertit.  It was our second (my second, […]

How Things Are Going III.


I’m typing this up from my living room/ dining room table, with a hot cup of peppermint tea and a completely empty, eerily quiet house.  My roommates left over the course of yesterday and today, flying back to the U.S to spend the holidays with their families.  I’m excited for the trips I have planned […]

Checking In VI.


Making: plans for Amsterdam and Berlin!!!  I CAN’T WAIT!  Also, I made lots of Christmas cookies this week.  I told the parents of my private students that we could make Christmas cookies in class and they agreed!  Lots of fun and even more mess. Cooking:  I made this garlic-lemon chicken & pasta and dare I say, it […]
