Rise Up

I don't know about you, but I need a reason to smile.  With everything going on in the world around me, I'm not sure whether to put together a survival kit and start a revolution or to follow my heart to Australia and make it official.  What on earth is happening?  Where am I?  It's...

What Doesn’t Kill You

Ladies and Gentlemen, stop what you’re doing.  The World Cup kicked off this morning and everything is right in the world again (this is me completely ignoring the fact that the U.S. didn’t qualify because we have a team of bagoons.  Viva Mexico).  But seriously, I have had an epiphany.  We have got to find...

catch me if you can

I have had a whirlwind of a week.  Did a little brunching, did a little wine tasting, did a little line dancing, did a little celebrating, did a little sun tanning in 110 degree weather.  Also, a bartender tried to kill me.  He failed...but A for effort.  This time of year is a bit crazy...

Midwest Heart

If you follow me on social media, you know that I've been in Chicago and that my heart is FULL.  Man oh man do I love that town.  I moved to Chicago on a whim after I graduated college, which now feels like a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.  Ugh, getting... Continue Reading →

Prison of Love

I recently read a book for my book club called Behind Closed Doors, which I chose and profusely apologized for afterwards, in which this (idiot) woman is basically being held prisoner by her psychopath husband.  Spoiler alert, this (idiot) woman marries this man before she realizes he's a lunatic who murdered his mother and is...

Live Loud

I was listening to the radio when I heard the lyrics "When is the last time you did something for the first time?"  And just to be clear, yes, I still listen to the radio.  It's one of the old school things I cling onto.  I also mail handwritten thank you notes,  listen to cassette...

the way way back

Blasts from the past.  There really is now way of avoiding it when you meet up with old friends, which is what I did the other day.  Names came up that I haven't thought about in years.  Old roommates, apartments, past relationships and jobs - you name it, we talked about it.  It seemed like...

Invisible

Everyone wants attention.  I don't care what you say.  You may not want the spotlight on the daily but you definitely crave some sort of light.  Humans actually fall into a funk when withdrawn from light for long periods of time.  It's called seasonal depression and it's a very real thing.  As much as I...

Reach For It

It's hard to tell yourself to reach for the stars when you throw out your back reaching for the paprika.  This is a true story folks.  I simply reached for a spice and everything changed.  I swear I'm an avatar and someone out there is getting a giant kick out of all of this.  If...
