Where did August even go?! I feel like each year the time between my little sister’s birthday, at the very end of July, and my birthday (Labor Day weekend) keeps getting smaller. This year, it seemed to pass in the blink of an eye.

A few years ago my entire family (cousins too) got on the T together (a rare occasion indeed) and after pushing our way through the crowded subway stations and across the heart of Boston, we lined up outside a theater downtown. We had tickets to see Eddie Izzard. He is quite possibly one of the […]
