I started this blog about a year and a half ago, a period in my life that the Caterpillar and I refer to as "Alice's Winter of Discontent." I was in a life slump, and needed an outlet. I still like to blog, but I've grown tired of the format of this site -- and seriously tired of calling people Wonderland-themed nicknames. Yeah, at the beginning that seemed fun and clever, and now it just gets on my nerves.

Instead, I'd like to write about the things I really love in life. And what do I love? Food, travel, and the wonderful people in my life. No gimmicks, no themes, no hackneyed nicknames. Of course, I could just use this same site to write about different topics, but the format feels stale and stagnant and in need of a change as well. So I'm going to start fresh, and see where it takes me.

Oh, and the aforementioned Caterpillar? Her name's Mary.

*And of course, you can always check out what Stefanie's been up to. That blog's not going anywhere, I promise.
