Hello from the coast of Italy! Totally kidding, I’m sitting at my kitchen table. Kevin is camping in the Adirondacks, my brother and his fiancée (!) are visiting, and the weather is GORGE, so beach is in order. Later– grilled clams and beers. Some links from the interweb below, if you feel like browsing… Oh. My. God.… Read More

I have a weakness for dips. I am that person at the dinner party who ruins their appetite by parking themselves in front of the guacamole and chips station. You would think that I’ve learned my lesson by now, but the other day I was at a friend’s birthday party and someone brought out hot, cheesy artichoke dip, and, well…you… Read More
Just some wise words for your Wednesday: There are a lot of goals that we cannot pursue directly: relaxation, happiness, attractiveness [and] creativity — when you pursue them directly, they flee from you… If you think about the two-system nature of the human mind, when you’re trying to relax, or you’re trying to be happy and not think about things,… Read More

This past weekend, Kevin and I took a little trip to New York City. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I’ve started sneaking pictures of the handsome fellow. Full disclosure: he is my boyfriend! I can tell you how we met in another post (is that interesting to you guys?) but in the… Read More
How was everyone’s weekend? I just returned from a mini vacation in NYC and am looking forward to sharing some photos later. For now, here are some links from around the web… This Japanese hotel offers wedding alpacas. Why not. Mmmm. Blue cheese. Can’t wait to see this movie. Why time flies by. Are you a… Read More

Especially with wedges, they make me feel tall and, dare I say, even a little leggy. The color is pretty and fresh, and… Read More
Summer means full days at the beach, long family barbecues, and…CHILDREN! Is it just me, or do one hundred million kids come out of nowhere the second it’s warm out? I’m lucky that I love kids (and make half my living from watching them), but having an antsy child on your hands and nothing to do with… Read More
I feel a bit like a broken record bringing this up again, but many things and people in my life have all of a sudden began to change — mostly good, exciting things, I’ll add, but overwhelming all the same. I try to take it day by day, but it’s hard work. This poem feels like a warm,… Read More
