Wander~ful

Not all who wander are lost. J.R.R. Tolkien I was told recently that in this lifetime I'm supposed to find my home.  To stay grounded and make roots.  If that is the case, I'm 100% failing at life.  My suitcase is always on standby.  I can't seem to stay put.  My life is a bit...

Is it Over Yet?

Hi, it's me, your friend the walking corpse.  I am going to say something that is going to make a lot of you mad.  I need a 3 month siesta.  I realize I spend a large portion of my life on vacation.  In my defense, they are all micro-vacations.  I need a giant chunk of... Continue Reading →

the last kiss

I had the absolute honor of standing by one of my best friends this past weekend as she said I DO to the man she met in a lazy river in Vegas.  Talk about finding love in a hopeless place.  The ceremony was almost as beautiful as the bride.  She was a total smokeshow.  It... Continue Reading →

Dog Days are Over

Yesterday was fun.  I got 61 pricks on my back at the allergist.  If you don't know my history with needles, here's a brief synopsis.  When I was four years old, my brother tripped me and I fell and cracked my head open on a hearth just below my right brow-bone by my eye.  This...

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...
