So 2013 wasn’t my year of blogging. I only managed 4 posts. Instead, I was busy living (and very much enjoying) life. Last night, we pushed through the jet lag (we only landed back from London on the 30th) and spent the evening with some of our favorite friends. It was nice to have a […]

So. It’s been a solid 2+ months since I last blogged. I can’t believe how quickly time has flown, but mostly I can’t believe how much has happened. The abbreviated version is: I became a working girl, we’re building a house, and we bought another car. Oh, and we’re headed to Mexico again this year. […]

This weekend’s technical endeavors have been… interesting. An appointment with the Genius Bar may still be on the cards, but I am holding out hope we can get ourselves sorted first. Once upon a time, I moved to London with a trusty iBook and Mark had a (Windows) laptop of his own. Then, when Mark […]
