What did you tell people that you wanted to be when you “grow up”? For me, it was a doctor. Briefly, a tap dancer on Broadway topped the list, and later a forensic scientist, but quite consistently through the years my answer to that question was a doctor. A pediatrician, to be exact. I heldRead more
Be where your feet are. Enjoy the day. There’ll be a day where there won’t be another day.
Here’s to chasing dreams, love, and a life full of laughter.
But most of all – here’s to being, rather than seeming to be.
It feels like a lifetime ago that we were spending a spring night, not much different than this, laughing until our stomaches ached and our eyes glistened with the type of tears only formed by that same laughter – those deep belly laughs, seeping with familiarity and tinted with the sad realization these days wereRead more
Life. It’s a funny thing, you know. We spend so much time trying to fit into the ‘perfect’ mold of who the rest of the world wants us to be. And yet, we’re damned if we do and we’re damned if we don’t. It’s like that old saying, “you could be the ripest, juiciest peachRead more
Can you keep a secret y’all? Because I’ve got a big one. As traditional and old fashioned as I tend to be, there is something I can’t help but love and be so intrigued by about the unknown.

The kind of sunrise that, despite the weight of the week behind standing on your shoulders, brings along a glimmering hope for the days ahead. A day far past the Monday morning thirst for coffee that is never quite strong enough, offeringRead more
And just like that, another day is in the books. Despite my desperate pleading with the course of human nature, time still marches on. As I sit alone in my new apartment, the reality of this is setting in. Here I am, unwinding from my first day of my first full-time job (the beginning of my career, perhaps),Read more
It’s 5 PM on January 1st, which means it has been 17 hours since the enormous, glittering sphere dropped in Times Square, the champagne was showered, and the love birds kissed 2015 goodbye. 2016 came in quietly for this girl. And by quietly I mean curled up alone in my queen-sized bed, half-asleep, watching LeapRead more
