It’s Pi Day! For the uninitiated, that is March 14, or 3.14…. In honor of the occasion, I have made — you guessed it — a pie. It’s chocolate pie (or chocolate pi) because my son is home for spring break and that’s his favorite. It still needs to finish chilling in the refrigerator, andContinue reading “Happy Pi Day!”

Day 10 (part 2): San Francisco
We spent about a month this summer on a 7,000+ mile road trip across the country, from the Washington, D.C., area to California and back. I began posting privately about the trip while we were gone, and I’ve kept the original dates from when I started the posts. But we’re home now, so I’m updatingContinue reading “Day 10 (part 2): San Francisco”
