Spain Trip Report: Two Days in Seville (with three children)

By

When prepping for this trip, I read quite a few Spain-related travel blog posts. These posts appeared to have numerous aspects in common. First, most sites were authored by a young, beautiful woman who always wrote as though she traveled alone (often part of her journey to self-discovery through her break from the bondage of modern society, or, more succinctly stated,…

Jack, Brenn and Megisms: A Time To Laugh

By

It’s been a lovely week with nothing particularly stressful or discouraging. I’m not stressed out or anxious. I recently published a post (my letter to my children about my old age) so I feel pretty decent about the state of this blog.

So, I’ve planned a surprise date for Paul tomorrow night. Dinner, a walk around a quaint downtown, dinner and (hopefully) a bookstore with conversation over post-dinner coffee (and yes, as I write this it occurs to me that we are so boring! Ah well. We do love to talk over food and hot beverages though!).  There have been a few…
