A year in the life

It feels like I’ve hit some pretty big milestones in a few key areas lately. I get all nostalgic in the fall, and I can’t help but compare where I am now with where I was a year ago—and luckily I’ve got the receipts in handy blog form.

The thought of a month off began as just a tiny whisper at my birthday dinner. One of my best friends works…… Continue reading Drink up

Too many cooks

Now that everyone has fallen in love with my boyfriend, I’m going to complain about him. That’s what girlfriends do, right? I had this conversation with a friend yesterday: Today another friend said I must save a ton on eating out since Bogart’s a chef. I may have overused caps in my response, but only…… Continue reading Too many cooks
