Pairings Retreat: From Dream to Reality

One day, shortly after the beginning of the new year, my friend Cristina from Your Personal Producer and I were on G-chat as we normally are, sharing our dreams for 2018. She was in a funk and I was in a post-Paris high! 2017 had seen some serious ups and downs for both of usContinue reading “Pairings Retreat: From Dream to Reality”

Paradise Found

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a girl surrounded by her bestest of friends is the happiest of people. UNIVERSALLY ACKNOWLEDGED. And I’m not talking about your run of the mill acquaintance here…I’m talking deep, unfailing friendship. The kind of friends that tell you “Those shorts do not work with your ass.” They tellContinue reading “Paradise Found”

Unrealistic Friendspecations

As a single, 30-something who was living in New York until a short time ago, I relate to the beloved TV show, Friends, on so many levels. Too many to count. There is no show that means so much to me and has influenced my life the way Friends has (with Seinfeld coming in atContinue reading “Unrealistic Friendspecations”

The Road to Civil War

We are on the verge of Civil War…no, not the North vs. South kind…no, not the Dems vs. GOP kind. The Marvel-ous kind!! The #TeamCap vs. #TeamIronMan kind!! The kind that will have grown men and women crying in the aisles come Thursday, May 5th (for the early birds) and Friday, May 6th for the rest of theContinue reading “The Road to Civil War”

Quality over Quantity

Think back to when you were in the 2nd grade. How many friends did you have? If you’re a social butterfly like me, then you had lots of friends. I knew practically everyone in the 2nd grade at my little, country elementary school and they all knew me. I was the one who was alwaysContinue reading “Quality over Quantity”

Platonic Friendlationships

Downton Abbey Season 6 Spoilers Ahead…       I confess. As I’ve watched Downton Abbey the last 2 seasons, I’ve come to wish that Branson and Mary would try and make a go of it. After all, they get along famously and make each other genuinely better people (especially in Mary’s case.) Plus littleContinue reading “Platonic Friendlationships”

Window Washing

Needless to say, I don’t like crying. I never have. The feeling of utter vulnerability is completely unappealing to me. And yet when a powerful moment comes along that brings me to tears, sometimes I hit repeat and hold onto it. Perhaps I hold on sometimes because these moments are few and far between for me.Continue reading “Window Washing”

Come join #TheSweatPack

2016 is in full swing at Nerd in the City and Lean Girl’s Club. We are determined to make this year count for more than just 12 sheets of pretty calendar paper!! This is THE ONE! I say that every year. Because every year it’s true. Every new year is a chance to make it.Continue reading “Come join #TheSweatPack”

Welcome to #TheSweatPack

I love fitness! I really do. I love the feel of straining dormant muscles (most especially dormant after the holidays.) I love taking classes at Soul Cycle and Title Boxing Club (where I am a member.) I love running by the lake in my neighborhood and lifting weights and jumping rope. I love to feelContinue reading “Welcome to #TheSweatPack”

My Inside Out Islands

Last night I watched Pixar’s Inside Out for the first time. I know…shock, gasp, what? A self-proclaimed Disney lover such as myself? Here’s the thing, I always knew I’d love it. I just also knew I’d cry. It’s Pixar for pete’s sake. If you didn’t cry in Toy Story 3, Wall-E, Up or Inside OutContinue reading “My Inside Out Islands”
