Urban Air is Worth a Trip Over the Ditch

I used to make fun of the whole "cross the ditch" phrase, but I get it now. Anything on the other side of the intracoastal feels like a million miles away when you live at the beach, so something has to be pretty good to make us drive over a bridge. Urban Air Adventure Park … Continue reading Urban Air is Worth a Trip Over the Ditch

A Different Sort of Yoga at SaltAer Circus Arts

I Can’t Wait for Kindergarten

As I read the thousandth post this month about a mom being sad her "baby" is starting kindergarten, I started to wonder... What's wrong with me? Why don't I feel that way?

It Sounded Like a Good Idea After Wine

A funny thing happens after a couple glasses of wine. While I normally try to maintain a "can-do attitude," my can-do becomes multiplied into "I'm an expert" proportions. Combine that with checking e-mail or cruising Facebook and it sometimes results in things I may question the next day. Nothing weird! Just an overblown sense of … Continue reading It Sounded Like a Good Idea After Wine
