Starter libraries are great gifts for newborns and their families.  Often times I pick out a combination of books: some will last through their toddler years and some into early elementary school.

Bike in Boston

Bill and I went to Boston last Sunday, hours before snow storm Marcus’ arrival.  I had booked a walking chocolate tour via groupon as an early Valentine’s Day gift for us… and I missed the Saturday evening email to say it had been canceled due to the storm.  I only saw the Saturday night email […]
