Today, I am thankful. I’ve got 24 hours until I run my very first half marathon. Sure, I’m stuck in bed with a sinus infection, I haven’t run much all week, and this jet lag is a bitch. But I’ve gotta say your love and encouragement have given me the extra lift I need to… Read More Thank You’s
On the flight from New York to Seattle, I decided to watch How to Be Single with Dakota Johnson and Rebel Wilson. I’m awesome at picking terrible movies but they’re kind of the only ones I really enjoy. Name one. I’ve probably seen it five times. Anyway, beyond the badness, I could sort of relate with… Read More How To Be Single
It was October 2015. Halloween season. I’ve never really been excited about Halloween. To me, it had always been another holiday to avoid. Yet, every single year, on the day of, I’d find myself cobbling together an outfit because…FOMO. It actually wasn’t until I met Shannon that I began to enjoy it. One of my most… Read More May All Your Dreams Come True
Back in the day, I used to be part of a work team that was closer than closest can be. We went to each other’s weddings, we disagreed (with passion), we rode trains, planes and automobiles together, we acted like clowns, we saw success again and again…we had a good thing going. We were a… Read More Eight Hugs
Life is a gift. Live it well. This past year, two people in my life have passed. Beautiful women. Both in their 30s. Too soon. Shannon, a woman who had the laugh of a lifetime. I’ve never been a sillier person than I was with her. The shenanigans we’d get into, the days we’d walk around… Read More Live It Well
My journey hasn’t been the easiest. But I’ve made it my mission to keep laughing, loving, learning, living. Being perfectly imperfect and unapologetically Fi. And guess what’s starting to happen? Things are beginning to just click.
Yesterday on Insta, I posed the question, “What would you ask for if you knew the answer was yes?” I’ve been thinking about this quite a bit because…hmm…I actually don’t know. I’ve been trying to figure out what this means. The whole not knowing thing. Am I lost? Am I scared? Do I not want… Read More Stumped
I recently came home from a blast of a weekend at Coachella in Indio, California. I danced around the desert to the tunes of Miike Snow, Flume, and Grimes. I sang at the top of my lungs along with LCD Soundsystem, Ice Cube, and Sia. I made new friends who had me laughing and giddy the entire weekend.… Read More Come As You Are
If someone asks, this is where I’ll be.
Last night, in sunny San Francisco, in an Irish pub, with whiskey and beer, my world’s collided. And it was awesome. Both my best friends, Vanessa and Annie, have been living in San Francisco for a bit. Unfortunately every time I visited, I could only see one of them. This time, we changed that. I’ve known… Read More When World’s Collide
