Having a baby… and traveling

I have a new foster baby, you can read all about her on my blog All My Pretty Ones. The baby is 6 weeks old, and although I knew there was the possibility of getting a placement, I planned my summer and fall travels with the assumption that I wouldn’t have a baby. The flights […]

Eats in NYC

Chinatown: Nom Wah Tea Parlor, the first dim sum parlor in NYC. Because my first visit to Chinatown must include food, and I want it to be something a bit more authentic and historically signifigant than Lucky Garden!
