It’s Mother’s Day. A day to honor mom. Send her flowers. Write odes. Give her hugs. A day to say “yes” to mom. The thing about my mother and I is that we’ve been through a heck of a lot in my 30-something years. While my mom was raising me, she was also growing up herself.… Read More Down In My Heart
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
Since joining the single party — for the umpteeth time (no, really, it’s FINE) — I’ve been noticing that old school dating no longer exists. Like at all. From what I’m seeing, people don’t meet at bars or while volunteering or when hanging out in the park anymore. They go online. You guys, there are apps for… Read More Bumble Who?
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
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
I feel like I have so much to tell you. I’m having a really solid “yes” week and it’s only Wednesday. Sunday AM: Like the time I said “yes” to running 11 miles, which is just insane. I can’t believe I actually did that. Sunday PM: And when I said “no” to Sunday night blues and… Read More Brighter and Better
Earlier this week, my dear friend, Nicolette, let me know she’d be in town and asked if I was free. I wasn’t free but here’s the thing: Nicolette was and has always been one of my favorites. We met while at UT (hook ’em!)–we still don’t know how or where–and well, it had been a… Read More Knock ‘Em Dead
It’s becoming clear to me how pursuing my passions bring out the best in me. How loving something so much can make me a better person. How being my super awkward self, the person I truly am, can make me feel amazing. It’s becoming clear to me how much this world has to offer and how much… Read More Be. Impressive.
