Currently I would argue that in addition to love you also need high volumes of caffeine, sleep and a vacation (a staycation would do). I’m drowning in activity these days and failing at my main new year’s resolution…. it was a rainy day for last week’s flower party and I was more exhausted than chipper … More Currently

Brewed in Detroit

I don’t drink beer.  I don’t like it at all but I’m surrounded by beer connoisseurs and am aware that Michigan’s brewery scene is quite impressive.  So much so that a recent list named 4 Michigan beers on a top 20 list of the best beers in the world!  Nationally, Michigan is one of the … More Brewed in Detroit

Holy Saturday Brunch

   Last year we hosted my Mom’s family for Easter breakfast.  It went well enough but was a bit rushed because we also had to go to Danny’s family in the afternoon.  I felt bad for double-booking so this year I invited people over for Holy Saturday, it was a much better arrangement. I love hosting … More Holy Saturday Brunch

Social Hour

Today Chris sent me an article about millennial and un(der)employment.  It’s not good folks.  He and I often discuss the fate of America, society and our generation and ponder potential solutions.  We are generally on the same page but go back and forth about our solutions. He shared with me some comments from our co-worker and it … More Social Hour
