It has been months since I have taken the time to write for myself. I could blame the usual suspects of work and life and my busy schedule. But in reality, I have truly been living my life, and allowing myself to fall in love.
About a year ago, my path happened across a stranger. [...]
I have not really been doing much writing lately. There have been a few journal entries here and there, but I have not had a public thought in quite a long time.
And frankly, I even hesitate with this post. I find myself questioning whether or not it is too intimate.
There are very few things in life that I consider myself good at doing. I can plan one hell of shindig. I can write a menu description that would make you salivate over a carrot stick slathered in ranch dressing. And I can condense almost any statement into a 140 characters or less. But there [...]

It has been the perfect combination of temperatures in the low 70′s and sunny during the afternoon with temperatures falling to the low 50′s at night. I am talking windows open, music blaring and dance parties in my world right now.
I often keep the line item of “make a bad decision” on my to-do list, and I do ridiculous things on a regular basis. So often in fact, that I am privileged enough to have a lovely little sign above me desk.
