|Summer Spontaneity: My Must-Have Trunk Trinkets|

I wish I could say that I pack light, but I would be lying to you. Goodness, I just got back from a trip to Miami last week and I had, not one, not two, but three bags in tow. (In my defense, it was my sister’s bachelorette party and I had one entire duffel… Continue reading |Summer Spontaneity: My Must-Have Trunk Trinkets|

| Coffee Date Conversations: What’s Currently Brewing- April |

This entry is long overdue, but I figured that since this is the first time actually ever drafting up a “love list,” I could take my time. The concept came to me in April, but as you are aware, the month sort of sucked for me. It was a transformative month, yes: I experienced some… Continue reading | Coffee Date Conversations: What’s Currently Brewing- April |

| All Out. |

I just completed my book review blog entry and had every intention of clocking out at 1,350 words. I am tired, utterly exhausted and yet, as I scroll up and down my main homepage I am struck by how impersonal my blog is, how safe my posts are and how disconnected they remain from the… Continue reading | All Out. |

| Checked Out: March Book Review II |

I had the most miserable ride into work today. No, it was not the traffic or the weather or the fact that my car still smelled like puppy after our weekend road trip. I had to pee. I know that this is a strange way to begin a blog entry, but I speak the truth.… Continue reading | Checked Out: March Book Review II |

| Checked Out: February Book Review |

If you haven’t been able to tell by my previous blog post, New Orleans was a place that left me spellbound, captivated by the surrounding sights and intrigued to learn more about the history of such an eclectic, eccentric world. I picked up Gary Krist’s “Empire of Sin” at the “Librairie Bookshop” on Chartres Street;… Continue reading | Checked Out: February Book Review |

| Swooning Over The City: My New Orleans Top 10 |

Some of my longtime readers may remember the blog entry that I posted last year about traveling with my best friend. When we were younger, the two of us used to venture everywhere together: Providence, Rhode Island for junior high shopping trips. Charleston, South Carolina for college tours. Las Vegas, Nevada for bachelorette parties and… Continue reading | Swooning Over The City: My New Orleans Top 10 |

| Gold Pen Geode Dreams |

For our first-year wedding anniversary, my husband bought me the calligraphy kit that I had added to my Amazon cart months prior as one of my “paper” gifts. It was wonderful and I couldn’t wait to create beautiful signs and hand-write greeting cards and make table assignments with gold pens on vibrant geodes and… Practicing… Continue reading | Gold Pen Geode Dreams |

| Sit & Stay A While |

We are now fourteen days into 2019: A bright, sparkly New Year. Where have I been, you ask? I suppose that I can share the truth: The holiday season swept me up and dropped me in a Radio City Music Hall Rockette line-up where I could do nothing but smile, point my toes, and kick… Continue reading | Sit & Stay A While |

| Checked Out: October Book Review |

“Best. Day. Ever.” I sent those three words and a picture of Mitch Albom’s book, “The Next Person You Meet In Heaven” to my best friend, just two days after the novel arrived on bookshelves. We exchanged words of giddy elation, sent a few dozen exclamation points back and forth before I put my phone… Continue reading | Checked Out: October Book Review |

| Writer’s Rebellion Workshop Day 1: A Will To Dig Deeper |

A stretch of time alone, with no agenda… A vocal rain, tapping on the windows, filling an otherwise sleepy room… Norah Jones on the record player and a warm beverage by my side… Tonight seemed like an opportune time to begin my online writing course, mentioned in my last blog post. I logged into the… Continue reading | Writer’s Rebellion Workshop Day 1: A Will To Dig Deeper |

| Another Year, Another Goal List |

Last week, I turned 31 years old. It was an incredible day filled with family, friends, delightful gifts and delectable sweets. I got the royal treatment at work and the festivities continued after I returned home- homemade pasta served inside of a whole steamed lobster, wine, a mouth-watering dessert with “Happy Birthday” scripted on the… Continue reading | Another Year, Another Goal List |
