Love & Happy-ness

Still not really sure how it's July or 2021 or Thursday or anything anymore. I need a time machine and a basket of champagne. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know celebrating America can be divisive but I like to think of it as a celebration of our rebellion against the authority, splitting... Continue Reading →

take my breath away

My biggest love affair to date has been with the outdoors. Still managing to take my breath away all these years later. This picture makes me so happy. I saw it at a nature preserve in North Carolina and I stood staring at it for ages. It's beautiful...the way the light finds its way through... Continue Reading →

black hoodie magic

My sister asked me what I wanted for Christmas and the only thing I could come up with was a black hoodie.  Love me a black hoodie.  I wear mine at least 6 days a week.  It's the one consistent thing I do.  Grown-up Christmas lists are hard.  It really is true - you get... Continue Reading →

Bless You

I spent my Sunday night being a basic bitch with a little paint and sip action.  This painting started as a wedding gift...ten years ago.  No joke.  I ended up not going to said wedding and they have since divorced.  So it has been behind my couch since 2010 collecting dust...until now.  I'm not quite...

Leave Me Wild

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I took the day off this year as you might have noticed.  I spent the day with a beautiful group of friends that started with a polite spritz and ended in broadway show tunes.  My favorite kind of day.  I was extremely thankful for the gift of...

Absurdist

Question of the week:  What is sleep? Tell me all about it so I can live vicariously through you.  My brain is an energizer bunny.  I'll lie there for hours, trying to will myself to sleep, and she just won't quit.  Right when I think I'm finally dozing off, I begin wondering things like -...

hold me

I have a confession to make.  I'm a failure of a female.  I guess I kinda missed out on that shoe affinity I'm apparently supposed to have.  I'm more of a have 4 pairs you run into the ground and less of a Sex in the City closet kind of gal.  My last pair 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 →

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...

I Believe in a Thing Called love

People watching is my jam.  I find relationships, especially, extremely fascinating.  I love looking around a room and observing couples.  I wonder how they met, who made the first move, how long they've been together, how many kids they have, what their last argument was about, if they still like each other...the list goes on...
