I eat a lot of bacon. I don’t know if that means we can’t be friends anymore, but I just thought you should know. Gosh, I hope not. If we can’t get over our right to make our own food choices, how can we remain friends during an election year? I can’t remember if you’re […]
When the sun gracefully bends down in the sky to about here the most beautiful thing happens off my balcony. Before I show you that, let me back up in time just a bit. When we first moved into this little condo about a year ago, we were in the middle of some very stressful […]
I look out the window. The sun is shining, the leaves are dancing a slow waltz and I hear traffic close by. There is a tiny spot of grime under my left thumbnail. I meticulously remove it with the long prong on the pen lid. The AC kicks on and my feet turn to ice. […]

I don’t have it all figured out. Far from it. I’ve been on the sending end of about a zillion queries that were carefully thought out and written. Of the handful of responses I’ve received back, only a fraction of those turn into real money so I’m no expert on how to make a living […]

The summer I was fifteen was the summer I wasn’t sure if I had a steady boyfriend or not. Teen communication being what it was, his ‘Well, have a good weekend. And summer. I’ll see you around.’ had left me problem solving our togetherness. Sure, I wanted to still be going out with him. He […]
I’ve started and never finished a ton of posts. They sit here in my drafts, lonely. Some of them look so familiar, I swear I’ve completed them already. I used to see them every time I started a new one, but at some point, not sure when, I stopped seeing them. They don’t exist to […]
