  Fast forward a dozen years to my 30th birthday, which I just celebrated in June. While some may dread the milestone, I was grateful for a new decade and a clean slate on which to rewrite the disenchantment of my 20s. But, much like what I imagine high school to be like in the midst ...

oof the workweeks with all five days in them sure are the hardest, aren't they? helloooooo friday, we have certainly missed you around these parts. despite the forecast for another rainy weekend, the good news is that S and i literally have no plans -a fact that has not happened yet in 2015 (crazy!). so ...

hi, how was your weekend? speaking of weekend, darling magazine online published another of my articles on saturday! i use the term "article" loosely, because in all reality, it's more of a showcase of M's handiwork with a little accompanying paragraph composed by yours truly. anyway, if you could use a little pick-me-up on this monday morning, i suggest ...

i went on a date with a guy once who, in learning my age, was quick to tell me how good i looked (in spite of it). "i thought you were like 21 or 22," he said. thank you? does this mean my anti-wrinkle cream is doing its job? maybe it's the oil-pulling. mostly i ...

the great christmas day movie debate

0 Permalink 0

as you may know, (since i've only mentioned it here and here) every year on christmas day my family ventures to the cinema (said with a british accent because it sounds fancy, like this cinnneeemahhhhhh) to take in a matinee. it started with patch adams in 1998 and ended with last year's not-so-christmas-appropriate django unchained.  and now ...

thirty days of thankfulness: 11/10/13

i never kept a diary as a young girl. sometimes, i kind of wish i did, if only for the fact that it would probably be quite entertaining (and contain a lot of JTT references). but despite the fact that i didn't contribute regularly to a little notebook privatized by lock and key, my love ...

not over it

there are some things that i may never grow tired of -trader joe's (duh), almond butter (double duh), some sort of barre workout, the bravo network, j.crew, really great phone conversations, tim riggins, sunrises, the way brewing coffee smells in the morning. i don't think i'll ever not love the view from my office at ...

central coast with my cousin clan

i tend to believe that the initial moments of travel have the power to set the tone for the entire trip. perfect example? that one time in march when i broke my cross-necklace in the security line before spilling my entire iced coffee in front of gate four of the southwest terminal prior to my flight ...

forgiveness isn’t a four-letter word

in the world of self-expression, they say you should write about what you know. which, i mean, makes perfect sense. why would i write about cars or most things associated with water-sports when clearly i'm no expert in those fields? precisely. so much to your chagrin, i write about failed relationships or fashion, or anything having ...
