One year ago I took on this crazy challenge of writing a post every single day for the month of May. I was wondering if I still "had it", the ability to focus and execute posts in a disciplined and regular manner. Although it was a ton of work and resulted in at least a few sleep-deprived nights, I managed to pull it off, publishing 31 posts in the month of May.
I can't believe it's May again already. They say time goes by faster and faster as you get older. Man, is that true! It really feels like just yesterday I was churning out those posts. Yet, at the same time, as I look back on the year, I realize so much has happened. Like our phenomenal trip to the Canadian Rockies (which I still have not finished writing about!), Unforgettable tour of Malaysia and Singapore, our relaxing diving trip to Hawaii, and even my two-page Boston Globe spread in the month of March!
Do I dare try the same thing this month?
I decided I would try a modified version.
I still have so much I want to share on this blog. I still want to tell you about some really cool places we visited while in New Zealand and Australia. Similarly, there's this amazing tea house in the Canadian Rockies at the end of a challenging hike that I've been meaning to share about. Add to that the rest of the Disney World posts and some of the cool meals we had in Boston while entertaining Bryan's parents, I have plenty of content to share.
So I am going to try to post every day, Monday to Friday, in the month of May. I will give myself the weekends to recharge and catch up. That way, hopefully, there will be no sleepless nights this month.
Hope you enjoy!
Just for fun . . a sneak peek at a few!
The dollar is so strong now that meals in Europe feel crazy cheap. Here's a look at a really fancy Michelin starred tasting meal that Bryan enjoyed in Helsinki, Finland a couple months ago for only 55 Euros.
This new Chinese restaurant in Lexington (a suburb of Boston) is actually a chain from China and has become one of my regular haunts ever since I discovered it this past year.
When Bryan's parents visited, we had the most decadent Shabu meal I've ever had in Boston.
We sat at the special Pasta Table at Giulia on Marathon Monday and enjoyed a lovely multi-course tasting meal in celebration of Bryan's sister, who had just run the Boston Marathon!
Can't wait to share these posts (and more!) in detail with you over the course of the next few (intense!) weeks!
