Who Am I?

Who Am I?

I’m sure it’s a bit late for a post like this, but I realized I’ve never properly introduced myself on this blog. And in light of current events, it seems appropriate. My name is Megan Cutler. I’m 28 years old and I’m a writer. Books have been a part of my life as far back …

Going Overboard

Going Overboard

Remember a few months ago when I mentioned our obsession with stuff? I’d like to believe it grows out of good intentions. The fact is, when you buy something big and expensive, you want to show it off. You’re proud that you were able to acquire this big, expensive thing, and you want people to …

When Time Began to Tick

When Time Began to Tick

Lest you think I forgot… Some time ago I mentioned our first trip to the British Museum and the time we spent wandering the Egyptian exhibits. Believe it or not, the day was only half over at that point. My husband wanted to check out the early British history section, so that was our next …

Off to See the Sights!

Since we moved to England, I’ve been looking forward to hosting visitors. My husband’s parents are working on seeing the world. They go someplace new every year.

Egypt, Egypt, Egypt

Egypt, Egypt, Egypt

When we learned we were coming to England, there was never any question we’d visit the British Museum several times. It’s the kind of must-see location you wouldn’t want to cram into a single day. Even approaching the building was exciting. In England, there seem to be a lot of large gates with small doors …

A Meat Loaf for Every Moment

A Meat Loaf for Every Moment

Music has always played an important role in my life. In high school, I participated in both the chorus and the band, and that participation resulted in some of the most stressful and most memorable moments of my life. I’m almost always listening to music. I listen to music when I travel, when I relax, …

Back in the Day

Back in the Day

I spend a lot of time talking about the importance of the Internet. How amazing is it that we can connect instantly with someone living on another continent and speak face to face? When I was a kid, our only connection with people overseas came in the form of pen pal letters our teachers forced …
