hello!

Just a quick note to say hello and wish you all the best for a wonderful weekend! Mine is starting early with a trip home. As I fire off this post, I'm zipping through New England in the dining car of a train...my favorite way to travel. (The dining car part is important...I love sitting at a table, with some version of coffee or chocolate always within reach.) Being on a train just makes me feel like I'm muddling in a pool of happiness. Something about the comfort of it all, with the beautiful world zipping by my window. And we can be honest here...Harry Potter probably has something to do with it.

I haven't seen my sister and brother-in-law since last August, when I made a special trip all the way to Minnesota to check out their new digs. Despite video chatting and email and facebook and texts, I miss her dearly, and can't wait to wrap her up in a real live hug. I also can't wait to see this guy, and just snuggle him to pieces.

Fill your weekend with love! What will you be up to?

  1. Well that's the cutest little puppy I've ever seen. Please post more photos of him as I'm sure he's a full-grown handsome devil now. Have a great time!

  3. Have so much fun with your sister! Looks like you chose wisely re: train snacks...almond croissants give me the hugs (where you have to spontaneously snuggle everyone around you because they're so delicious).

  4. Have a wonderful trip! I think any train adventure is even better with an almond croissant in the dining car.

  5. I've never actually been on train trip! I've taken commuter trains but nothing too exciting. Hunkering down in a dining car with a croissant (yummm) sounds like the perfect way to travel. Hope you have a wonderful weekend catching up with family!

    1. You should!! Usually cheaper than air travel, but more than bus.

  6. I think the only thing that can make a train adventure in the dining car better is an almond croissant. Have a wonderful trip home!

    1. I love the commuter rail too! When I was in Providence and Joe in Boston, one of us took it almost every weekend...it really grew on me. =)
