In the month of November I went white water rafting down the longest river in the Caribbean. I took a solo writing retreat. I turned 25 and celebrated with a sleepover slumber party. I ate good Thanksgiving food with friends who have become family. I moved and am living by myself for the first time. … Continue reading Here’s the thing about November
A couple years ago, Sarah Alleman (a Detroit-based photographer and activist) began a year-long journey to photograph and publish a coffee-table book filled with experiential date ideas for couples, arranged by season. A Year of Adventures, My Dear is meant for any couple anywhere, and all the photo shoots and production takes place locally in … Continue reading Here’s the thing about A Year of Adventures, My Dear
Here's the thing about October: it's over tomorrow and I forgot to watch any Halloween movies. Last year I had much more Halloween spirit. I watched Hocus Pocus and Beetlejuice and Double, Double, Toil and Trouble and The Nightmare Before Christmas! I gave kittens names like Pumpkin and Pie and Scarecrow! This year all I … Continue reading Here’s the thing about October
Here's the thing about September - it's over. Crazy, huh? Only three more months before we're ringing in another new year (which I'll be doing in Brooklyn, baby - hazah!).

This week was a perfectly ordinary one spent at home with my cat. Each day I went to school, came home for lunch, reading, and a nap, tutored, wrote a chapter of Grayson (second draft, let's do this), read some more, and watched TV. It was great. Four weeks from today I'll be in Brooklyn. Articles … Continue reading Check this out!
This week, despite some really fun times, I've been on the verge of a grumpy explosion. Today I finally figured out why - my routine has been totally off. (I am my father's daughter!) It feels good to look back on a week full of canceled tutoring, special McDonalds dinners, and flooded living rooms from … Continue reading Check this out!
My roommate Melissa and I moved to a new apartment this week! I say "we" moved but I did very little of the actual moving. All of our awesome, strong, truck-owning friends showed up and got the job done so quickly and so efficiently yesterday afternoon that we are already over half-way unpacked! The move … Continue reading Check this out!
