People around the world, posing with their daily caloric intake

I found this photo essay fascinating. Married photographers Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio traveled around the world and asked the people they met to pose for pictures with their daily diets in front of them. Let’s just say, it varies widely.  A few of the 23 images: As I was posting this, I realized I have no… Continue reading People around the world, posing with their daily caloric intake

Happy Memorial Day

Hey everyone! By some chance of fate, Mark and I both have this weekend off…as in, this entire weekend off at the same time, including all three days in a row. Needless to say, this happens rarely to never. So what did we do? We took long walks with the baby, we hung around the house, and… Continue reading Happy Memorial Day

Quick Kitchen Conversions

Just in time for Mother’s Day: a cute picture of daddy with our 8 1/2-month-old Baby G 🙂 We hit the mall last weekend to buy mom some clothes in her (ahem) new size. If that’s my Mother’s Day present, I’ll take it. It’s worth it to feel good about yourself in new clothes that fit… Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day!

Review: Tornado in Malden

Since I had to work a night event on my birthday, a friend and I decided to check out the new Tapas bar near our meeting for an early dinner. Tornado opened just a few months ago in Malden, which is apparently gaining a reputation as the next culinary hot spot. (Woohoo for our property values!)… Continue reading Review: Tornado in Malden
