Ghostbusting

It's October.  That spooky time of year.  And what's more scary than ghosts and dating?  Honestly, you could give me the option of a haunted house and a dating app and I'd probably go for the house.  And I HATE haunted houses.  I get irrationally scared and the entire time I'm wishing I was at...

Love You, Mean It

I am currently on a plane headed to the Midwest for Ann Arbor to celebrate my aunt and uncle’s 50th wedding anniversary.   Yes, that's them - how cute are they?  These two humans have chosen to stay together for 5 decades.  Kinda blows your mind a little bit doesn’t it?  I don’t think I like...

Maternal Me

What do you want?  Question of my life.  I want to live in a castle but like one with good insulation and a giant library full of first editions and velvet couches.  I want old maps that hold secrets of treasures unknown.  I want a lazy river moat full of mermaids and waterfalls and potions...

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 →

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,...

What is Love?

I've found myself in a lot of conversations about love lately.  Where is it?  How do you keep it?  Does it exist?  Why haven't I found it?  Who has it?  Can you buy it?  There's all kinds of love out there.  There's the love you have for your friends and family, the love you share...

Wait for It

The average person spends five years waiting.  If that didn't just make a single tear fall down your cheek or make your head wanna pop off, you have more patience than I will ever know in a lifetime.  Five years is a really long time.  I will have spent more time in traffic than I...

Birthrights & Braids

I've developed a serious obsession with the Middle Ages.  This goes beyond Shakespeare, which we all know holds an atrium in my heart.  Maybe it's because I'm having serious Game of Thrones withdrawals or maybe it's because I'm doing whatever I can do to avoid the fact that chokers and platform shoes are trying to...

The Plus One

For those of you who don't know me, I'm a midwestern handful, sports enthusiast, sarcasm specialist, lover of all things magical and vodka infused, book nerd and wedding connoisseur.  Weddings are my jam.  What started out as a business transaction has now become a very expensive party in which two people celebrate their love by...
