This last few weeks I have been thinking about how little I read and write anymore, and it made me rather sad, so I picked up a book and started reading. Talking As Fast As I CanMy first book of choice, Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham, aka Lorelai from Gilmore Girls.
I've lived in this house for nearly twenty years. I know it's creaks, I know it's cracks. I know precisely what every light switch does and I know which power outlets work better than others.

This has given me an opportunity, … Continue reading Breaking away from preconceived notions: Redefining Self
Three years ago today I made one of the best decisions of my life. Because of it, I found my best friend. No regrets.
So basically, six of some of my closest girlfriends all live in a house together and I’m the non-rent-paying-roommate that crashes on the couch wayyy too often, but I bring a bottle or two of wine and it somehow evens things out.
