Pizza and other foods act as a social lubricant. Take a crowded room full of strangers; everyone's uncomfortable. Give them all food, and suddenly they are in an Italian restaurant; they're pleased to be surrounded by strangers.
I've been wanting to go on a train ride ever since I was a kid. I've been on city trains before, but never one that went into the countryside and showed you the wonders of nature. That's what I want to do this year. I'll definitely take my kids as well so that they'll be able to enjoy it as much as I do.
I just learned that my daughter needs to get glasses. She's really worried about looking bad, so maybe I should get her some cute pink frames like this! Pink is her favorite color, so that could possibly help her feel a little more confident. She always looks adorable to me, so I'm sure we'll figure something out.
