Sunday Sustenance: Sides, Sides, Everywhere There’s Sides

B could happily eat the same lunch every day for the rest of his life. He’s much more of an Eat to Live type. Eating in my family is an event. We’re talking multiple courses and plentiful drinks. There was a rule growing up in my family that you had to try at least a […]

Lookin’ Spiffy

B is not widely known for his fashion sense. I always think he looks great, but clothes horse he is not. His favorite place to shop is Goodwill. His rationale is that the clothes have already been worn and washed so you “really know how they fit”. He has a point. And when we lived […]

School Daze

B recently turned 28. I’m holding onto 27 with both hands (for a few more days). We’ve been together for 7 1/2 years. In that 7 1/2 year span we were both out of school, with jobs at the same time for less than a year. We both have Bachelors, Masters and now B is […]
