Good morning, Friends! Lately I’ve been seeing friends post photos from our senior year – all of us very tan and wearing fashions that are, somehow, back in style – in solidarity with students who are missing out on theirs. My senior year of high school was both traumatic and one of the loveliest years … Continue reading On Grief and Hope.
Yesterday was Mother's Day, and my mom, brother and I were able to celebrate together for the first time in over a decade. It was wonderful to be together (also: my brother had his hooding ceremony for his master's degree, which was amazing, and proud doesn't cover it)! Anyone who's had the pleasure of meeting … Continue reading An Ode to Debi.
As my step-sister Katie said upon leaving Denver this morning, "I've got a case of the Sundays." But let's focus on the positives: I had wonderful visitors this weekend, it's a beautiful day outside, and I used a shop vac like a boss this morning. We visited Red Rocks this weekend and enjoyed the view … Continue reading Sing-a-long.
Hello, howdy, hola, friends! (It's been so long, I felt like you all deserved a selection of hellos.) At the risk of starting on a note of negativity, the weather in Denver has been ROUGH lately. I shouldn't complain, since we get pretty spoiled out here, but dear lord. I think we're getting all our … Continue reading Work it Out.
Hello, long-lost friends! How've you been? Hope you've all been enjoying the start of spring. I just returned from a glorious wedding weekend in Michigan. My dear friends Kate and Andy were married in a charming town on Lake Michigan, and it was a lovely wedding. Kate is the sweetest woman I know, but she … Continue reading Wedded bliss.
This past weekend, a bunch of my favorite ladies gathered in the Hudson Valley for our dear friend Kate’s bachelorette party. It was an amazing weekend. There were so many magnums of Cristal poured over so many male strippers’ chests…if by “magnums of Cristal” you mean bottles of pinot noir, and if by “over male strippers’ chests” … Continue reading Bachelorette Bash.
When I was two, my grandparents traveled to England to visit my grandmother's pen pal. They also visited Scotland, and they brought back a doll for me. This doll had golden ringlets topped with a plaid beret, and she wore a matching kilt with white knee socks and little black mary janes. She stood upright, … Continue reading #YesScotland.
Friends! I've been absentee lately - the last month or two have been ridiculously fun. I went to a bachelorette party in the Poconos, my beautiful step-sister got married near Chicago, a co-worker's daughter had her bat mitzvah, and OH YEAH, I got published in a literary magazine. But today's topic is my long-awaited, glorious … Continue reading
Dear friends, it is a momentous day. I have now lived in Colorado for one whole year. I was counting down the frickin' hours to my one-year anniversary in New York because that first year felt like a terrifying carnival ride: big ups and downs, bright lights, and ever-present nausea. It certainly wasn't easy getting … Continue reading Happy Anniversary.
Happy fall, everyone! I realize I'm a couple weeks late on that wish, but I was extra Grinch-y this year about the demise of summer. In fact, this is the first year since moving to New York in 2006 that I haven't been praying for sweater weather since early July. While summer in NYC boasts … Continue reading As the Leaves Turn.
