Nine years ago, when I was managing the Delaware Shakespeare Festival, I had two marketing ideas: let’s promote the Friday night shows as “Date Night” and the Sunday evening shows as “Family Night”.

Kaylee’s Baptism, a set on Flickr. The day following Kaylee’s big birthday blowout, we had her baptized in the Catholic Church.

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Long before a TV series and themed food truck madness, Greg and his boys were completely engrossed in the Song of Fire and Ice series, which is what you might know as The Game of Thrones on HBO. He loved the book so much that he made me read it, pulling the, “to know me,… Read more »
