I’ve been hearing much talk about how 2017 has been a terrible year. It seemed like every way we turned, the world was falling apart. Our lives were changing and the future seemed grim. There was a sense of restlessness and helplessness, a sense of exhaustion. It was full of highs, lows, and all the… Read More 2017 and Me
Cheers. Cheers to a year full of momentous ups and monumental downs. Cheers to being better for it. Cheers to the travels, the adventures, the risks. Cheers to ringing in the year on a snowmobile and wrapping it up on the beach. Cheers to Burning Man! Cheers to the late nights, the early mornings. Cheers to the music… Read More Cheers to Us
Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations. Guys, it’s been a long five years. But this past year has felt like one of the longest. I’ve been trying to figure out what’s been getting to me lately. What’s making me feel paralyzed. I don’t think it’s the travel and obligations. I don’t think it’s the cats… Read More My Queendom
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?
That moment you realize you might be getting it right. This weekend, I strayed a bit. Being home has come to mean laundry, bills, errands, chores, groceries (kidding, I don’t buy groceries). I wake up. Do the things. And then…ugh. So this past weekend, I changed it up. I skipped Dateline to hang with a… Read More Doing it Right
Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden. I’ve been thinking about how lately it feels like I’ve stepped from the solid ground onto a frozen lake that could crack at any minute. I’m doing big girl things for the first time in a long while. I’m googling terms I feel… Read More Get Your Own Flowers
That’s me. And I’m free. Talk about extraordinary love… :: Running over the Brooklyn Bridge this morning reminded me of a quote my friend @julissaarce sent to me at the very moment I needed it. As I finish running these 8 miles, I’ll leave you with it. Yes, it’s about love. Yes, it’s about free.… Read More Extraordinary Love
“There is only one time when it is essential to awaken. That time is now.” :: Ever since I started traveling more than usual, Maui started to say good morning and goodnight just like this. It starts off as a little shoulder hug and then gets a bit awkward when she doesn’t move. Because, like,… Read More Spring Awakening
Challenges are what make life interesting. Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. I woke up this morning with a cat on me. But also with so many things running through my mind. It seems as if every time I come home, life goes BAM. Even though I tell myself and everyone else, “I’m ready…”…”I’m… Read More Time to Climb
You will never leave where you are, until you decide where you want to be. I wanted to see the sunset. So I did. ~Until next time, LA. Stay gorgeous. 💛, fi.
