sitting - at my desk at work eating - FOOD AGAIN after I got that super awesome case of food poisoning I was terrified to eat anything. Truth be told, I'm still nervous - but not as much as I was. feeling - like I wish the sun would take... Continue reading

I spent my weekend with family, being busy, laughing and eating. On Monday however, I woke up and by 11 a.m. had pretty much google-diagnosed myself with appendicitis. I ended up spending 6 or so hours in urgent care getting fluids, being reminded that I'm anemic (I have GOT to... Continue reading

So, on Saturday I decided I'm no longer going to be drinking my very favorite drink from Starbucks. An iced venti skim caramel macchiato (180° if the weather permits) was my daily (sometimes twice!) poison of choice, and people - I've given them up. If you know me, you understand...

A few of these are an abject failure (6/24 I'm looking at you) but I'm sharing them in the interest of being forthright about what I actually wear on a day to day basis. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's just a miracle that I even got dressed at all. Continue reading

As I get closer to my forties than I am to my twenties I'm settling into this thing called life. Sometimes with more aplomb than others - but I do always try. One of the things that dawned on me recently was how I no longer want to be in... Continue reading

I have actual things to write about but you know what? None of that matters right now because I'm tired and I have a to-do list abut 53 items long, so here are photos of what I've been wearing in recent weeks. Continue reading

I don't quite remember what I was doing but the other day I had this moment where I realized how much of my time is spent not doing the things that are a priority to me and how that basically needs to stop immediately. All things considered, I won't pretend... Continue reading

So, although I don't really obsess over items of clothings (except for my jean jackets, obvs!) but it looks like those black booties and my new-ish Nike for J.Crew sneakers are pretty much all I care about wearing. I find that as it gets warmer, the less I really care... Continue reading

I seriously wish I could understand how fast the time moves by from one post on this thing to the next but honestly? I've got nothing. Zero. Zip. It just is what it is. I'm still pretty busy at work, which is good for my bank account but means that... Continue reading

Not real sure when I turned into a woman who wears more skirts and dresses than pants, but I like it. I like most of these - although I REALLY hate the pink dress (worn as a skirt) with the plaid button-down from 0424 - that was a misstep. Continue reading

“The decision to be positive is not one that disregards or belittles the sadness that exists. It is rather a conscious choice to focus on the good and to cultivate happiness, and genuine happiness. For happiness is not a limited resource." —Christopher Aiff Continue reading

I don't want to forget how after I left the Apple store in a hurry today (yay, to replacing my dismally cracked ipod for $100!) on my way to catch the train for work - I spotted an older, white-haired lady standing, waiting to cross the street. I couldn't yet... Continue reading

"Don’t hang out with people who don’t love you. Don’t try to impress people who aren’t worth it. Don’t try to win people over who aren’t worth it. Focus on yourself, and focus on the people who are really awesome and who love you. Don’t hang out with people who... Continue reading

Despite the fact that this is not the first time I've shaved my head it still doesn't feel less....startling when I see my reflection staring back at me from the mirror. Because here's the thing - I like my face, it's a nice, respectable-looking face. But having no hair? It's... Continue reading

I guess I hadn't really realized how much I'd been wearing florals lately but look at them - they make me so happy. "Florals? For spring? Ground breaking." -Miranda Priestly (Devil Wears Prada) Continue reading

Lately, things have been crazy busy at my job which means I'm working 6 days a week. I'm (mostly) not complaining because I have a job and it's not that hard. But what that does mean is that I have to find time to squeeze in the rest of my... Continue reading

It's kind of wondrous when you think about how much of a hurry we are to grow up when we're young, only to get there and realize it's...hard. There are bills, bosses, decisions - and for some of us there are spouses and babies and it can all be so... Continue reading

Umm, it's not big secret that I love patterns but I think this particular set of photos illustrates that pretty effectively. Also, I am henceforth not allowed to buy anymore jean jackets. Now that I've proclaimed that, I'll probably buy one tomorrow. That's how I work. Continue reading

This past weekend we took a too short trip to my hometown so that we could celebrate my Grandmother turning 80! I think turning 80 deserves an exclamation mark (or two)! Family can be...trying. But when I tell you that the room was filled with so much love? It was... Continue reading

A year ago, you died. A year seems like forever ago and yesterday all at once. I said then that I didn't know how I could go on being the same person I was before you were gone, I was so right. I'm not the same person I was on... Continue reading
