The Great Escape: Month 73 Roundup thumbnail

Month 73 was meant to be my “breather” month in between two crazy periods of work travel this summer, which in retrospect is kind of funny because for the most part it wasn’t exactly relaxing — aside from two weeks in Martha’s Vineyard, in which even then there was a constant rotating door of guests coming…

The Great Escape: Month 72 Roundup thumbnail

Astute readers may be scratching their heads thinking… did we just skip twelve months of roundups? Why yes we did! When I decided to jump ahead and blog this summer as it happened, I kind of forgot about the whole “roundup post” thing. Expect a few of these coming up as I catch up on the…

New York City

Damn, do I love New York City. It’s a bit of a sore spot for me to think about how little time I spent there — the city I called home for four years — while I was stateside this summer. A mere twelve days. One night before hopping a flight to Nashville, three nights after…
