For several years, Martina and I have wanted to leave the schlong of the US (Florida) and get ourselves up to Portland, OR. There’s a whole cacophony of reasons, but here’s a few that come to mind:
While my nephew Max was visiting me from the UK, we had a boys’ day and went to the Tampa Bay Grand Prix which was a lot of fun.
While my nephew was good, he wasn’t quite enough of a match for the champion of the day (me).
Somehow, Martina managed to convince me that there is such a thing as a “baby moon”: one last getaway during the latter stages of pregnancy, before you embark upon life as a parent.
We didn’t go far, but taking a couple of days away to spend with each other and be out of our normal routine was just what we needed.
Last night, we had a delicious dinner at Seasons 52, and this evening, we decided on some of our favourite vegan pizza, from Gourmet Pizza Company.
In a few months, Martina and I are expecting our first baby, a little girl. So we put together a baby registry for people who want to help us get all the stuff we need.
I seriously had no idea just how much stuff you need, and I’m a practical person! So, if you feel so compelled, feel free to buy us something from our registry.
