It has been a long 3 weeks over here. The kids have been out of school since the end of May (seriously why so early?) and camp doesn’t start for another week! It has been non stop all day everyday. We have been to every […]

Summer is in full swing here in Eastern North Carolina. When we moved here from South Florida I didn’t think it was possible to find a place that was hotter than there. Honestly I think I say that every time we move. I really thought […]

Walking around the Old City of Beer Sheva, its easy to pass by the many small and inconspicuous restaurants that dot the streets and small alleyways of this old Ottoman city. Many are worth passing up while others are hidden gems that are worth a second […]

Something happens between Thanksgiving and New Years in the human mind where we throw caution to the wind and indulge in the most glutinous behavior possible. Well, that time of year is upon us. As soon as the leftover turkey and pumpkin pie have left our refrigerators, the holiday […]
