Winter offers interesting exercise options

If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes.

I first heard that saying while visiting Maine, but I think there's some truth to it here, too.

Friday was absolutely beautiful. I took in the sunshine and enjoyed a 75-minute walk through the neighborhoods of Coplay. It was so nice out I didn't wear a coat and, at one point, I even took off my cardigan sweater.

Saturday wasn't bad but it was definitely colder. By Sunday, the winds made it feel downright frigid.

Allow your children to amaze you

Thursday, February 21, 2013 by The Press in Opinion

Our Christmas card this year was a picture of our family at a winery in upstate New York.

All decked in various shades of purple and gray and gathered on a rustic porch, we were celebrating the wedding of our eldest child on a picture-perfect day in the Finger Lakes.

I asked the photographer if the winery could serve as the backdrop for our family picture that I figured would end up as our annual greeting card later in the year.

The photo included my husband and me as well as my mother-in-law, our daughter and her fiance, and our youngest son and his girlfriend.
