Jiggle It Lady Gaga

Lady GaGa I woke up early this morning to find the beautiful white stuff falling from the sky. I made some coffee, snuggled up with the pup, and stared out the window enjoying the tranquility. As I do every morning, I grabbed my phone and started to browse the headlines. I came across this powerful video of Lady Gaga: It is everything. She explained this so eloquently. Evil is an invisible snake and we are feeding it in more ways than we know. I then decided to go back and watch her Superbowl half time performance because I didn’t really […]

My favorite summer things 2016

Key West with Gina and Phoebe

Boy am I late on this ūüôā Officially fall started on September 22nd but Winter does not officially start until December 21st so I’m in the “safe zone”. Better late than never right? As you may have read in my #EatPrayDrinkTour posts, this was an action packed summer. That doesn’t mean I didn’t have a chance to write down some of my new discoveries, things that helped make this summer so special! La Colombe Draft Latte. My love for coffee runs deep. I discovered Draft Latte’s at La Colombe some time ago but this summer I found the canned version […]

That’s a wrap

Emerald Bay

Wheels Down. I landed back in Philly on Monday, July 4, 2016. The significance of it being Independence Day is not lost on me. June was finally over and I was feeling refreshed. It was time to claim my Independence from the things that have been weighing me down. It was time to accept my new reality. I was transitioning careers and experiencing a new decade in a new life. When I first landed in Philly, I felt like there was a cloud above me, perhaps it would be better to say a weight. I wasn’t ready to slip back […]

Laguna Beach

Tanya and Jodie

PDX TO LAX. My flight from Portland to LAX in route to Laguna Beach was so short that I barely remember it. I was so tired that I have zero¬†recollection of take off. I think I slept the whole way … maybe. I’m not sure. I do remember landing and then walking into the airport thinking it was a shit show. LAX is just so big and I had no idea where to tell Tanya to pick me up at arrivals. Tanya and I met through our¬†mutual friend Amy. It was probably 9th or 10th grade when we first really […]

Portland

Mount Hood - Portland

PORTLAND I LOVE YOU. Dave and I met when we were 14 years old. We completely disagree about what he was wearing the first time we¬†spoke in 10th grade. I swear it was blue pants and a Hawaiian shirt. It was 1991’ish¬†so it¬†would make sense based¬†on fashion trends of that time, but he claims he didn’t own blue pants. I’ve let it go though – kinda. These days¬†we disagree about other memories. For example, the time he almost killed us driving to Ocean City, Maryland because his sandal got caught on the brake pedal. (That happened and there were witnesses […]

Eat Pray Drink Tour 2016

Streets of Philadelphia

Happy freaking birthday. June of 2016 was one of the best and worst months I’ve had in quite some time. The month started with me leaving the job I held for the past five years which¬†was closely followed by a big birthday of an¬†age¬†in which we will¬†not speak of and then a small injury on my hand. Now I know that these 3 actions¬†are¬†clearly just first world problems but as they occurred simultaneously, it felt like being punched in the gut. I tried to smile through it all and pretend like it was the best thing that could have happened […]
