I woke up to something rather unusual this morning....... sunshine, that's bloody what. After weeks of grey cloud and rain, it was fabulous to finally get my share of the big warm yellow thing that normally hangs around in Australia and California. I immediately hatched up a plan.

So, I guess “why Norway?” is more like a $900 question....more
I'm a vegan for Lent. Or, I was until I boarded the plane for Norway. I figured that eating vegan in Norway was going to be tough but I really had no idea how tough. After asking for a vegetarian meal on Scandinavian airlines and being given a fish dish instead I was quick to throw my hands up in the air and give myself a week long hiatus from Lent. Given the proximity to sea and the farming practices of the country, which are primarily livestock and feed grains, you can bet there was lots of dairy, meat, and fish to be eaten....more
I am back from a much needed spring break vacation with my husband. When we were waiting for the first of many flights at the Detroit airport my husband, sick with a cold, and me, bogged by stress, were both wishing that we booked a vacation someplace warm with white sand beaches and pink sunsets and drinks with little umbrellas.
