Travel Troubles with Bex

I suppose I’ve taken for granted that flying is easy peasy. Except for that one time that we almost missed our flight to Ireland, I don’t usually tend to have any problems. Leg 1: Philly to HarrisburgI was in New Jersey this weekend for a family reunion (which is the reason this blog is late) [...]


Crow and Cake

Before I tell you all about my week – I feel compelled to describe my current surroundings to you. It’s a Sunday morning. My supposed “drunkard” neighbors (that was gossip from the old man down the street who apparently watches everyone all day) are in the back yard in Hawaiian-looking getups, not yet arguing but [...]

A Speakeasy and Shamrock Spectacular

In an epic weekend of compromises and new experiences, I have a “new” bar to review and had a great St. Patrick’s Day.
