Live from B&N, it's Saturday night!

Enjoying a night out with Sal at one of my (our) fave places .... always so inspiring to be surrounded by so many great books, so much knowledge! Hope you're enjoying the weekend too!

Where In The World?: 2012 edition

This summer, Sal and I will head west, journeying through Wyoming and Montana to explore 3 of our country's amazing national parks ...

Sal and I love traveling around the world ...exploring new countries and cultures ... but this year we've opted to travel domestically and explore some of the USA's

We're so looking forward to soaking-in all of the natural beauty, wildlife, geology, crisp mountain air, and hiking trails that await us! If you've been to these parks, I'd love to hear about your experiences (and any tips)! Please leave a comment here on WITW, or shoot me an e-mail.

Can't wait to pack my new Pan Am bag! ;-)

"appy" holidays

Whew, we're already a week into 2012 !! Before we get too far into the new year I'd thought I share a few scenes of our Christmas festivities....

Sal and I had some fun with fellow faculty, staff, and grad students at the FAU Chemistry Dept's holiday party:
Santa brought iPhone 4s's to my parents, woo hoo! We all had fun downloading apps and stuff over the holidays ... I got them addicted to the Word Warp game, LOL:Buddy & Aruba had a blast opening their gifts!
Thank you, Grandma! :-)

Hope 2012 is off to a great start for you!

happy new year!

Welcome 2012 !!

Sal and I began this new year as we always do, with a group hug with Buddy & Aruba at midnight. It's the best!

I (sadly) took down our 2011 Greece calendar ... loved that trip! But I already have my 2012 calendar hung ... you might recall that I always choose a calendar theme based on the destination(s) that we'll be visiting that upcoming year. And Where In The World? is our 2012 destination? ... TBA ! (soon!) {planning in progress... I'm waiting and hoping that airfares will come down, LOL}

Wishing you all the best in 2012 ... my hope is that all suffering around the world --- both human and animal --- will somehow be replaced by joyful living.
