Sisk Family European Vacation: Paris – Day 1...

September 27, 2011
If you’ve been following me for the past few weeks, you know that a few weeks ago, my husband and I traveled to Europe (we’ve been home since September 10th). We spent three days in London (I’ve previously shared those photos HERE), then took the hide speed train to Paris on the evening of September 5th. The next morning, we didn’t have much of a game plan…so, we grabbed a map of Paris (including a map of the metro) and hit the streets. One of the first places we decided to stop was La Madeleine. From there, we could see Place de la Concorde. Here’s a...

Sisk Family European Vacation: London, Day 3 – The London Eye...

September 20, 2011

Miles and I immediately hit it off. After a brief introduction, I asked I could hold his hand. He agreed. Apparently this is NOT typical behavior. For the record, I have...

It would have been a good plan, but as you might imagine, nothing ever goes according to plan. It is incredibly hard to force yourself to sleep at 7 pm. So, of course we stayed awake during our entire flight to London. We landed around 6:30 am. We might as well have been zombies. Had we been properly rested, we might have thought through the next decision a little more...

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

August 30, 2011
Do you remember Mister Rogers’ Neighorhood (go ahead, click it…you know want to…and you’re going to sing along, don’t even pretend)? Those were the good old days…weren’t they? Okay, so maybe Mister Rogers’ is a bit creepy, but I loved how simple life seemed to be back then. I grew up on a cul-de -sac, so we regularly played in the neighborhood, road our bikes up and down the street and stayed out until dark. We didn’t have to worry about updating our Facebook status or tweeting our latest whereabouts. If we wanted to talk to someone, we...
