The Truth About 2016

The Truth About 2016

So it’s been a year. And it has BEEN A YEAR, if ya know what I mean.  I took a full year off from the blogging game, for reasons I still can’t quite articulate. I didn’t set out at the start of 2016 to deliberately ignore my corner of the internet, it just happened. Last December, I started a new copywriting job that was an absolute blessing and so much fun. My boss is fantastic, my hours are solidly nine to five, but flexible because I am a contractor. I have worked on a variety of projects, put some new creative ... Read More »

The Long Game of Following Your Dreams

The Long Game of Following Your Dreams

Over the past year, I slowly laid down the dreams and timelines I once carried so tightly. I told you how I had carefully laid plans, and but how I was learning to let them go.

In my most recent years, I lived at the break-neck pace of New York City, simultaneously loving and ... Read More »

Five Things Friday: 5.23.14

Five things I’ve been loving lately… Something local Hoboken has a new coffee shop – Black Rail Coffee! I discovered this new spot while scrolling through #Hoboken tags on twitter and since I happened to pass by 800 Jackson street this week, I had to try their cold brewed coffee. Setting up shop right next to the 9th street light rail station seems an ingenious move to cater to commuters. Read More »

The Trepidation of Urban Motherhood

Photo Credit: Michael Comeau, Creative Commons I am thinking more often and more actively about what it looks like to be a mom in the city. I am asking more questions of friends who are moms, babysitting for friends, and finally picking up books that talk about child-rearing. I should know by now… this is how I do things. I am a researcher and fact-gatherer at heart. I want to be fully informed on whatever is my current topic of interest. I want to discuss it with anyone who will listen, and then eventually at some point, I feel ready ... Read More »
