Food For Thought: But I’m Vegetarian?

Oh it’s you! My fellow “I eat a specific diet” friends! My Gluten Free friends. My Vegetarian and Vegan friends. My Diabetic friends. My Allergy-list-a-mile-long friends. I’ve not been vegetarian for long, just 5 years this March. When not pregnant, I also try to stay away from dairy and eggs (not quite vegan though). I have […]

A Surprise For Bethany

For me, this past summer in Haiti was unique in one huge way: it was my first trip to Haiti without Bethany. Considering that she has made several trips to Haiti without me and she is typically with me when I’m there, this meant that EVERYONE I worked with was wondering where she was. Everywhere […]

Miami was, in one word… different. I don’t know how many times during the day I would tell my co-workers, “It’s just so different […]

This post is a continuation of another, go here to start at the beginning.  The feeding ends. As the chaos dies down, I am sitting with a little one on my lap. She’s just started walking within the last few months and she’s scarfed down an entire man-sized portion of rice and stew. But she’s not acting […]
