The Story of the Tiny T-shirt from Myanmar

Jared has this theory that I shrink his shirts. It’s misguided; for one, we don’t use a dryer and two, we both do the laundry. My theory is that some of his shirts must be defective, but I guess neither of us has concrete proof. To be fair, this shirt of his was a normal […]

Truffle Pasta in Rovinj, Croatia

Jared and I drove to Croatia on a whim. Once we decided to go to Piran, Internet research led us to a little spot known as the Istrian peninsula, a place I had been unaware of until now. If Istria was located in Indiana, everyone would know about it. But because it’s north of Croatia’s […]
