Well, folks–week 2 of my San Antonio adventure begins. And as much as I like this city (and the lodging on post, which is nicer than a lot of other places), I am ready to sleep in my own bed again. Alas, not till Friday. Happily I had some down time over the weekend, exploring […]

My dear friend Val sent me this article and I thought it was such a fantastic read, I figured it would be of interest to FHO’s readers, as well.

It was a very low key weekend, here in DC. The weather made it near impossible to do much (again), so there was a lot of baking (homemade pop tarts, croissants, quiche, etc.) and a lot of reading. Nice, because much travel is happening over the next month (hello, San Diego, San Antonio [for 2 weeks!] […]
