Sister's Day

Yes, Sister’s Day actually exists–and it’s today.  I looked it up b/c I am basically eternally floating in a blissful “I love my sister” state, and I figured there had to be a day to celebrate.  This post is nothing but a pure shout-out to how much I adore my sister and how grateful for her I am.

Let the Games Begin!

So, you may have noticed my 50 billion references in the past few months to the Summer Games.  Not that I’m obsessed or anything…I have a long-standing love affair with the Olympics.  Some of my fondest memories of our early marriage are from when we didn’t have cable and only got NBC in our apartment
