Honeymoon

I love the honeymoon period that accompanies anything new. New love, new job, new hobby and even a new time of year. When the first snow falls, I rejoice at the idea of brushing the dust of the boots I haven’t wore in 8 months and bundling up near a fireplace with a cup of […]

Define “Retreat”

It’s always a good day when you get to wear whatever you want and be away from the office. Even though the staff “retreat” didn’t include a vacation destination or poolside cocktails, I did learn a lot about myself and my coworkers…any by “coworkers”, I mean “myself”. With the trustworthy Meyer-Briggs inventories in hand, my coworkers […]

Señora Youngman

I am so honored to support a campaign involving one of the most influential people in my life. Señora Youngman was my high school Spanish teacher for four years. She is currently fighting her third primary cancer and my tiny hometown have rallied around her, creating a campaign to get her on the Ellen show (her […]

Frat Boy

Ten months ago I found myself living alone for the first time in two years. Although initially nervous about the transition, I adapted quickly and have fully embraced living in an environment similar to that of a 20-year-old frat boy. Frequently now days, the dryer is used as a storage unit and I pee freely […]

Not So Competitive

I love the impact football has on a community. People rally together, become friends with strangers and double-dip without reservation. What I hate about football, and all sports in general, is that there is a loser. The only thing that I can compare it to is watching a horror film. From the moment it starts, […]

Save the Tatas!

Seriously?! How often do I think about my boobs as a woman? Never? Only when I’m in the dressing room at Victoria Secret and having to ask the sales woman to grab me a 34B since I ate too many donuts last year and am no longer a 32B? When my doctor is uncomfortably pulling […]

June Cleaver

I work a standard work week Monday through Friday, getting Saturday and Sunday off, but this week, I was lucky enough to have MLK day off. THREE DAY WEEKEND! In just an 8 hour period, I slept in, spent time with my dad, organized three photo shoots, completed three photo shoots, grocery shopped, rearranged the […]

Superheroes

Only superheroes wear capes. I’m no superhero, but simply a rule-breaker. However, I do have some superheroes in my life and since I’ve never seen them wear capes, I’m doing it for them. Superhero #1: my mom and step-dad. Most people collect shot glasses or thimbles, these two collect people. Over the years not only […]

Smooth Criminal

Your Honor, I’m really sorry and I’m not a criminal. You see, I have this blog about thrift fashion and it really was an innocent mistake that I was on private property using their walls as my back drop. Yes, yes, I understand it looked weird that I had a camera on a tripod and […]
