Waffle window in Florence

Food Trippin’ – Florence in Photos

Couldn’t even show you any pictures other than food even if we wanted to. So here is our visit to Florence.. in food. You see these everywhere.. waffles. On the whole, not bad.

Las Vegas

Happy Birthday, Q!

A weekend getaway for my birthday was just the ticket! Tickets to see “O” happen to be a bonus. We had a typical Vegas weekend– minus the clubs and the gambling. Lol. OK, say maybe not typical, but we can always party later. This weekend is all about self indulgence. We packed in an entire… Read more…
