We're the parents to our children that we wanted for ourselves. When I think of all the cool things my kids have experienced - the trips, the meals, the traditions, I realize how much I wanted to do those things when I was growing up. I'm interested to see how my children parent in the … Continue reading Reflections and a resolution
Month: December 2014
So...this Wednesday, 12/17, is the 7th anniversary of the Wine Bar & Bistro on Lark. Yes, that did go fast!
