  2. A year or two ago, I arrived for a first date at a quiet cocktail lounge to find that every table was taken. My date met me at the door, scanned the venue a few times, and finally turned to me. “Okay… I guess we can sit at the bar—as long we don’t sound like we’re …

  3. If anyone around here needs to get herself to the gym ASAP, it’s me. (It’s been months, people. RED ALERT.) To be honest, I’m actually planning to head back in January, but I feel like I want to be clear: It won’t be because of any New Year’s resolutions. I’ve just never been a New Year’s …

  4. I have a story this month that’s a little bit harder to get off my chest than my usual “What the actual frick am I doing in my relationship, ugh God I am a mess,” meltdowns. Those are surprisingly easy because I am very much at peace with the reality that I am, in fact, a mess. This …

  5. I know. Your interest in whether someone else is an introvert or extrovert lies somewhere between you caring about the dream they had last night and who they drafted to their fantasy football league.

  9. To the sweaters and scarves and light coats, The full-bodied beers, chilly evenings, and campfires. To football, and The Home Team, The cider and pumpkins and crunchy fallen leaves. The 31 days before The Holidays creep in, and there’s still weekends left for just you and me. To the month of birthdays and planning and change, …

  10. Amidst what will most certainly go down as the craziest week in 2013 (a story for later, I promise), I’ve found myself longing to… BLOG. Here. On my own blog. “Um, duh!”, you say? But really, this longing to write is new to me. It feels weird; weird in a good way. For the longest time, …

  11. This week, I’m packing up my apartment of firsts. First time living alone. First big furniture purchase. First time leaving a job. First time I admitted to being truly lost. And while my divorce was being finalized at the very end of 2011, in this apartment, I said for the first time, “I need help”. When …

  12. This summer, my friend Collin Hughes stopped by to shoot some proper head shots and general apartment photos for an e-zine interview that ended up falling through. I loved the pictures, so I thought I’d post some of my favorites here. Because the e-zine focused specifically on design and music, we shot my “freelance studio” (that …

  13. I made a little cameo appearance in Lily & Violet’s lookbook this fall. Some of the pieces I wore were really cute, specifically this jacket. Thanks to the talented Canary Grey for making me feel comfortable in front of the camera and to Style Architects for making me look pretty. They’re so fun to work with.
