  5. On vacation, I like to wake up late, mainline fancy coffee drinks, eat more candy than my teeth prefer and indulge in some local booze. Productivity is not a priority. But in between all the relaxing, I also see a lot of new, interesting things, and I may just get the urge to capture some of …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. I got really into “clean eating” last year. A few things happened that accelerated this process. First, I got married. It turns out, a wedding is an even better weight loss incentive than a middle school frenemy making a snide comment about my butt. Then, my family was hit with a series of health problems. I …

  8. We live in an achievement-oriented society, where being “busy” is practically a religion. Sure, we’re getting stuff done, but we often forget about the healing power of sitting around in our pajamas and doing nothing. This time is good for us because it allows us to actually like our lives and just be. And by “just be,” I …

  14. There’s something about summer that seems to magically put a glass of wine in your hand the second you get home from work. Maybe it’s all the patios you drive by or all the Instagram posts full of ice cream cones, but there’s fun all around you, and you want in on it, dammit. But if …

  18. So you have to write. Maybe it’s a term paper. Maybe it’s a cover letter. Either way, you’ve got to communicate with something other than emojis, dog gifs or your mouth. Staring at a blank page is intimidating for everyone, even people who get paid to write. So, how can you not only write something but …

  20.   Why, oh why do we watch The Bachelor franchise week after week? Is it so we can have something to talk to our moms about other than politics? Perhaps. Is it so we can live vicariously through skinny people whose dating life is wilder than swiping left or right on their grubby phone screen? Definitely. …

  21. Winter’s coming. This line means something entirely different for Game of Thrones fans, but for those of us in the northern part of the country, it has always meant a welcome shift in the pace of life. Frankly, I’ve been waiting all winter for the cold and the snow, but all we’ve really had here is …
