Clothing Purge

No, I’m not moving on from this blog, though I’ve definitely been on vacation. After the first week of July, I’ve committed to daily visits to the library to work on my next book proposal. I sometimes hit a wall in my writing, unsure of where to go with a sentence or a complete structure. […]

Whole30 Cookbook

For 34 days, I went Whole 30. The whole 9 yards, no cheating, reading every single label of every bit of food I ate. Whole30? It’s the #1 Best Seller in Weight Loss Recipes on Amazon. The authors tell you not to begin with the “not’s” when explaining the “elimination eating plan” (lest you call […]

Camping in the Rain

Once upon a life ago, I wrote a post where I make mention of my Hamptons Playlist, “Camp Hamps.” I documented my weekend in the Hamptons with my (very) single friends.

They need to shut the fcuk up. Whomever “they” are, those people who tell you, “You’ll know it when you find it.” I can tell you this much: I sure as shit didn’t feel that way about love. It took me 20 dates before I even considered myself dating my now-husband. I didn’t “know it.” […]

car conversations

One of the reasons I opted for a car without a DVD player or TV screens on the headrests is because I value our car conversations, the ones we wouldn’t have if my beans were being carted off to karate lessons after school, wearing headphones, engrossed in a movie on demand. Conversations like this one, […]

Oscartini Cocktail

Okay, so who’s having an Oscar’s viewing party at their home this year? Not me.* Want to know why? Because I’m still living in a rental house with crap carpeting throughout, and our furniture is still in storage, and the rest of this sentence and life is followed up with more excuses. I seldom entertain […]
