Find Me

The thing about Wedding Season is you don't have to be in a wedding for the festivities to take up a ton of your time. Our first ceremony of 2017 was just four days ago and already I'm counting down until our next free weekend. Sorry if that makes me sound ungrateful. Not the case at [...]

Give It Away

Showers are a staple of your 20s. And before we get five paragraphs in talking gifts and games and whatnot, please know I'm not referring to personal hygiene. Those should be a staple of every decade in life. But again, I attended an all-girls school where things were pretty hit or miss. Different topic for a different day. [...]

Complicated

Here's the thing about being good at something: You're always bad to start. I don't care if you're learning to swim or ride a bike or speak to a large crowd—you're never gonna nail it on the first try. Or the 22nd, for that matter. But here's the other thing: You're definitely not alone. It's [...]

One Last Thing

Upon sharing last week's semicolon post I was asked about the proper use of em dashes. Truth be told, I'm probably the worst person to ask about em dashes because I love em dashes—to the point where I may overuse them. So this Writing Wednesday is just as much for me as it is for the six other people [...]

How’s It Going to Be

We're barely a month into the new year and I'm already overwhelmed by everything we have planned. It's a great problem to have. I've always enjoyed traveling. And I'm not saying that in a "this is what makes me special" way—I cannot overstate how much I hate when people do that. Tell me something interesting about [...]

Smile Like You Mean It

I despise the idea of anything nonfat. I buy cheap shampoo. More often than not, I forget to apply lotion. And while we're on the subject of legs, bear in mind I did attend an all-girls high school, and anything you've heard about those shaving habits is probably true. Long story short, when it comes to beautifying, [...]

Everybody Hurts

Let's get one thing straight. All you young bloods having a good time 3-4 nights a week and still managing to function the next day, please know this: Adult hangovers are no joke. When you're 21, 22, 23 years old, you always hear people in their late 20s and early 30s mention how they just [...]

I’m Lost Without You

We all knew this day would come – we've been dreading it for the past five months. And it's not like this is the first time we've been subjected to such a crushing blow, nor will it be the last, but that doesn't make the reality any easier. This is our first college football-free weekend since early August. [...]

Don’t Panic

I'm an anxious person. I don't do well being away from home for long periods of time, and especially hate when that away is somewhere with a big, loud crowd. (Would it surprise you to learn my New Year's Eve was spent at home playing board games? WITH FRIENDS, of course. I do have friends.) [...]
