moving on, school edition

June 16, 2015


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. […]

hamptons camping

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. Now, this post with a similar title, takes on a more literal meaning. I’ve also gotten the joke, finally: every single time I go […]

finding the one

April 21, 2015


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.” […]

endship edition: friendship fails

January 23, 2014


Boca Friendships

One day she corrected me. It was actually she, Darlene, who was the inclusive one, the one who chose to introduce me to her friends, the otherfcukers, and not Demi, as I’d written. I mention this now, at the beginning, so you understand her character. She’s inclusive and generous, always inviting me, my whole family, […]

selfish or selfless love

December 10, 2013


Mr. Bikini

I felt like the father in a TV series who keeps waiting to bond with his newborn. By the end of the episode or act break, there’s a crisis, he’s forced to swoop in, and inevitably they bond. Sure I bonded with our beagle Mr. Bikini; it’s hard not to love a dog, any dog. […]

family vacation

October 21, 2013


Pool View

Right now, I’m in bed, eating Key Lime Pie for breakfast. I’m away on a family vacation with a crew of thirteen people, all of us in swimsuits and sunscreen. Some of us hungover, everyone sleeping in. We’re mostly taking to the ocean and pools, deciding between a chaise lounge or hammock, a piña colada […]
