Four years ago, Philadelphia beckoned. With its historic streets, ample museums, and plethora of restaurants, there was never any reason to be bored. What surprised me the most, though, was the vast geographic area the city took up (135 square miles, to be precise). Living in the northwest corner of the city, my husband Jeff and I often cruised a stretch of road called Lincoln Drive, which passed underneath a deeply forested area that reminded us of Jurassic Park.

Some believe that a girl should never give up a good apartment—not even for marriage. However, I didn’t get that particular memo until long after I’d already married (and long after I’d traded in my studio for a larger unit, sans the dazzling skyline view). Do I wish that I’d kept the place, so that Jeff and I might have a cozy little unit in which to reside whenever we returned to Minneapolis for a brief visit? Not really. After […]
Meet Lexi, a six-month old pug puppy. At times, this furry creature bears a striking resemblance to Gizmo, the fictional mugwai character from the movie Gremlins. Pugnacious to the core, Lexi tends to quarrel with her Boxer cousin, Baby Girl. Nevertheless, she can be awfully sweet when she sets her mind to it.
