A Texas Moon in Barcelona: The Story of an Onion and my Bare Butt

I haven’t blogged in 3 months. Frankly, I’ve been in a slump. Slump-dom, a veritable Kingdom of Slump, where finishing a bottle of wine on the porch is an accomplishment on par with doing laundry or writing a letter to my senator. So what happened these past three months? Aside from horrible, horrible things worldwide….…… Continue reading A Texas Moon in Barcelona: The Story of an Onion and my Bare Butt

Traveling Riverside Blues: Tips to Travel with Depression

I will never understand why some people don’t care to see the rest of the world. I’m not sure if it’s “Earth Live” or seemingly infinite internet access, but I feel like they aren’t seeing things clearly. The world is a dang fantasy novel that you can experience FIRSTHAND, not just from your couch. As someone who…… Continue reading Traveling Riverside Blues: Tips to Travel with Depression

An Ode To Teenage Wasteland

Do you have songs that make your ribs swing open on a hinge, and pump your heart full of helium?

25 Lessons Learned by 25: The Story of Getting Older! And Smarter?

It’s my 25th birthday! I feel a reflex to say something about budgets, hangovers, unemployment or “finding myself” as that is the general mish-mash of listicles you’ll find on the internet about your 20s. But it’s more of a gag reflex, so I’ll hold back. Here is an honest list of lessons I’ve learned by…… Continue reading 25 Lessons Learned by 25: The Story of Getting Older! And Smarter?

Connecticut Fear: The Story of How We Got Punk’d by Gordon Ramsay

This weekend, my mom and I went to the Connecticut town that inspired Gilmore Girls, because *WE ARE ADORABLE. We expected to stroll around with coffee, enjoying small-town life, but we didn’t expect to have a paranormal experience.

Where 2 Next? The Story of Planet Earth

The world is hopeless in so many ways. Pretty much every show on TLC (except *Cake Boss) proves that. But wait…the trailer for **Planet Earth II reminded me that our world is also awesome. Hopelessly awesome! Sorry to all you other planets out there. I know you have craters, Ridley Scott, and Sigourney Weaver (all…… Continue reading Where 2 Next? The Story of Planet Earth

Story time! Last summer, my boyfriend and I drove cross-country for 6 weeks. We made a big circle, going south, west, up the coast, back east and home again. One of my favorite memories is of the time we almost died in Utah. Let’s begin… Chapter 1 – NOPE We stop at Zion National Park,…… Continue reading Flashback Friday: The Story of How I Almost Died in a Canyon with a Mormon Whose Name I Never Got
