Friday, December 22nd, 2006 · No Comments

Last night we briefly attended a laugh-filled neighborhood get together at Melissa’s place, which was really cool since she’s one of the few people on our street who’s in our age bracket but we’ve never really hung out together.

Tuesday, December 19th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Just after Thanksgiving, we were delighted to have a visit from my uncle, aunt, and cousin from Ohio. We don’t often see each other (though more so now that we’re living on this coast), but we always enjoy catching up and are glad to be living closer to one another these days. And earlier th […]

For the second time in our relationship and the first time since we’ve lived in Saratoga Springs, Jen and I hosted a rockin’ Thanksgiving meal.
