TIN YEARS

Ladies, gentleman, toddlers and peasants - it is with great pleasure I share with you that today is my 10 year anniversary in LA.  One long and tumultuous decade ago I consumed way too much vodka, said goodbye to a city I love very much and boarded my one-way flight to LAX.  No place to live. ...

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...

I Miss You

There is a lot in this world that I miss.  Some of it is constant in a way I've learned to carry on without it, some wavers in severity, some rarely if at all and some shakes me to my bones at the thought of it.  How it all boils down is beyond my jurisdiction... Continue Reading →

Forever Young

  If someone would have warned me what being a "grown up" truly entailed, I would have taken a detour to NeverNeverLand in hopes of becoming Tink's protégé.  Fact.

In the Land of Blogs:

I've been toiling for months about what to write.  This is my grand entrance into the ballroom of blogs. My first impression in text. Normally I'd take a lengthy shower, put my abandoned hair dryer to use, smoke those eyes, and reluctantly perch myself on some heels.  And while there is nothing wrong with getting...
