Good things are coming down the road, just don't stop walking....

My housemate receiving her Master's

She earned the degree in August and began a new job in October. Nik and I are so very proud of her!! (If this were video, you would hear someone whooping in the background)

Fashionably Late New Year's Resolutions


Pictured here is the Alexanderplatz in Berlin, which is right below a clock. Notice all the activity going on below the surface.  My fashionably late resolutions are aimed at this level - at what is not readily apparent.



  1. Read a book just for pleasure every month, while turning off all social media, cell phones, and ignoring flares.
  2. Earn (finally) that degree.
  3. Read with Nik everyday (right now that is shared reading).

That's it. Those are three manageable goals which don't depend on others actions. So my question is now, what are YOUR resolutions?
