A Walk in the Black Forest

A Walk in the Black Forest in Germany Last summer, we knew our time in Germany was winding down, at least for a while, so we spent our Saturdays finding new trails even though we were perfectly happy to walk the same gorgeous trails around Tübingen over and over again. The boys had gone camping …

Chasing Daylight in July

Chasing Daylight in July should not be hard. The days are long and the walking opportunities abound!

We’ve reached that part of the summer where we’re swimming in summer squash and zucchini! You too? Good news! There are so many wonderful ways to fix it, and of course, if you simply cannot use it all, you can slice it up and freeze it for minestrone in the winter.
