I’m so so so excited. My apartment is really starting to feel like home as I watch my vision come to life. As you may know, I moved into my new SF digs about 2 months ago, and getting it together has been a process, let me tell you.

Let’s face it… moving is such a pain in the ass, and this move definitely did not go off without a hitch. There were a few hiccups, such as my couch not fitting in the elevator. I live on the 8th floor, so this was a problem. As annoying as this was, it was also kind of amazing, because it gave me the perfect excuse to start from square one.… Read More

Thanksgiving Survival Guide

So, Thanksgiving is TOMORROW!┬áNot quite sure how that happened, but other than one final trip to the market, I think I’m ready. Now that I know what I’m putting on the table, time to figure out what I’m putting on myself. I think Thanksgiving is the perfect day to channel a younger, chicer Martha Stewart. Think pre-prison days. Anyway, here’s how I’m going to survive the holiday.

“just say no”

So, as we’ve already discussed… I’ve been a little lot bummed about the election. I kinda can’t shake it, and all I can think about is what I can do to make a difference. Not regarding the results, but regarding the state, and the future of our country.

I’m hoping and praying that if any good is to come of this, it’s that more people are going to get up, get out, get involved, and make a stand for what they hold dear to them. So that’s what I’m going to do, little by little, one day, one step at a time.… Read More

Big Basin Winery

So… I’ve rarely gotten political on here, and I rarely will… but boy oh boy did last week send me on an emotional roller coaster ride, as I know it did for so many.

Without getting too into it, I was less than pleased with the results. Let me re-phrase that. I was absolutely TERRIFIED by the results. Let’s just say I had my pantsuit on and I was ready to party, instead, the night ended with my friends and I in tears, holding each other, and fearful of what the next day, and the next four years would hold.
