I’m writing this in the last hour of our 6.5 hour flight home. The flight is usually around 5 hours, but some inclement weather in the Midwest meant we had to take a detour. I’m tired. I’m hungry. And I’m ready to sleep in my own bed, honey. Okay, so day 3 was supposed to... Continue Reading →
DAY 2. FEET DONT FAIL ME NOW.
I don’t have an Apple Watch or fitness tracker, but I’d bet we got some serious mileage in on day two. By midday, my dogs were barrrrrkin. We’ll get to that in a minute. While planning this trip a while back, Ralph casually mentioned wanting to do a helicopter ride, and I pretended not to... Continue Reading →
My. Winter. Insomnia.
I don’t know if it’s the weather, but I find that I’m sleepy all day and then can’t stay asleep at night. I go to bed at 9pm, wake up anywhere between two and three in the morning, and then can’t go back to sleep. I end up on my phone playing the latest Wordle... Continue Reading →
It’s. Ok. To. Not. Be. Ok.
Lately I’ve been feeling inspired to try out different recipes. I like cooking my own food because it makes me feel in control of my own nutrition. It’s much easier to just order take out and be done with it, but I like the feeling of accomplishment. I like inviting people over and having them... Continue Reading →
Let’s. Open. Windows.
Hello to all of my blog readers! Another beautiful week is upon us. I had a pretty relaxing weekend, so I’m ready to hit the ground running and I hope you are too. If you haven’t had a chance to check out my podcast, what the heck are you waiting for? It has been such... Continue Reading →
I’m not alone. Neither are you.
I enjoy blogging and podcasting so much, that I can’t even tell you. It lights me up inside to press the publish button and know that I’m creating these small records of my existence. I love connecting with people in this way and hope that my words will give somebody comfort or make them feel... Continue Reading →
When I was in my early twenties, I went through my mom’s record collection and discovered the album “Hey” by Julio Iglesias. It was the soundtrack of a time in my life when I was considering whether or not I wanted to stay in a relationship or not. I would listen to it on my... Continue Reading →
Do. It. For. The. Memories.
I deleted social media on Saturday, after I arrived in Cancun, and I feel as light as a feather. I could give credit to the massage that I got upon arrival, but I need to speak on this for a moment. I am not shitting on social media. I am aware of what a useful... Continue Reading →
Beauty is a spectrum. Confidence is sexy.
I’m officially at the stage in my life where I prioritize comfort over cuteness. If you catch me looking cute, on any given day, it’s because I got lucky with some comfy, cute clothes. My plantar fasciitis dictates the kind of shoes I can wear, so you won’t find me dead in a pair of... Continue Reading →
Power. To. Women. Everywhere.
Well, that was an interesting weekend. Very somber, indeed. No matter how hard I tried to escape the feelings that came as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision, I just couldn’t do it. I went through a series of emotions. Anger. Frustration. Sadness. Fear. Absolute terror. How could this be? What the hell is... Continue Reading →
