Kryptonite

May it be marked in history that last night this girl had the craziest hankering for ravioli of all time.  That's all I could think about.  My current gluten and dairy free gotta-fit-into-that-bridesmaids-dress-diet does not allow Italian treats.  OR any treats of any kind for that matter.  [insert single teardrop down my cheek]  Can't my...

525,600 minutes

I'm a daydreamer and a night thinker.  I always have been.  I sleep with one eye open, which might be because I have FOMO or maybe because I have PTSD from when my apartment was broken into while I was sleeping but most definitely because my OFF switch has been disabled.   I may look dormant,...

Days of Magic

Songs take me back to particular moments or windows in my life.  Music is transcendent like that.  Growing up, after morning swim practice in the summertime, we would go to my friend's house and listen to Jagged Little Pill on repeat the rest of the day.  That album was very much the soundtrack of my...

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...
