An Emotional Pilgrimage

Sunday, December 31st, 2017 (cont’d) 2017 was challenging for me, to say the very least. Not only did my Granny pass away at the ripe old age of 96 years old, after a long battle with illness, but a dear friend from church was murdered in cold blood…senselessly, carelessly, confusingly. It’s something that I’ve spentContinue reading “An Emotional Pilgrimage”

An American in Paris: Day 1

Ok, now you know how I made it to Paris. Friday, December 29th, 2017 But I’ll bet you’re wondering what I got up to when I finally made it over there. Before I even left for Paris, I created a very tentative list of things I wanted to do, along with a vague outline ofContinue reading “An American in Paris: Day 1”

Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers

Let’s talk about sex. A very personal topic, to be sure. And I’ll be straight with you, internet. I’ve never had it. I didn’t have it on prom night or experiment in college. I didn’t have a Bradshaw-esque one night stand in New York City or make a really bad drunken decision. (Well, that’s notContinue reading “Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers”

Online Dating

It was my first foray back into the “wonderful world of online dating.” Actually, it was my re-introduction to dating after a very long time…period. And boy, was I rusty! I flexed my dating muscles by downloading 2 of the most popular dating apps: Tinder and Bumble. Basically the same thing in different clothes. The Dr. Jekyl and Mr.Continue reading “Online Dating”

Starry Night

When I think of starry nights, I think of one in particular. There was a girl and a boy and a perfect date. A date so memorable that I made an episode about it in my web series a few years ago. Take a look… You know what’s funny? Well, maybe funny is the wrongContinue reading “Starry Night”

What Coulda Been…

On Saturday evening, I got rear ended. Thank God my car wasn’t damaged and I only ended up with minor whiplash, all in all not a big deal. But here’s what coulda been… The guy coulda pulled over, checked to see if I was ok, if my car was ok. We coulda exchanged numbers. ItContinue reading “What Coulda Been…”

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”

A House Divided

No, I’m not talking about the current state of American politics. I’m talking about Star Wars. I am an…avid lover of Star Wars, this you know. So is my cousin. But when it comes to The Force Awakens we have vastly differing opinions. Mine is one of love and effervescence, his of skepticism and tentativeContinue reading “A House Divided”

Lizzie’s Solo Ride

I LOVE Disney. If you’ve been reading me for any length of time, you know this. That being said, I’ve never done Disney on my own before. I’ve always gone with friends or family. And the day is usually very mapped out. Everyone has their top picks and there is lots to cover in aContinue reading “Lizzie’s Solo Ride”

Heartbeats

Stop what you’re doing. Just for a  moment…stop. Reach out your hand, doesn’t matter which one. Take the opposite hand and press two fingers to your wrist. Press hard till you can feel your pulse…your heartbeat. That gentle tick tock tick tock. If you can’t find it there, reach up to where your chin meetsContinue reading “Heartbeats”
