Fall always brings a sense of nostalgia for me, mostly in part because I was a total nerd and every time school starts up, my craving for new pencils and first-day of school outfits and new writing pads kicks in.

I’m writing this during my lunch break of a particularly wearing workday. I started getting really frustrated with basically everything and my day was quickly taking a nosedive until I took this break and decided to focus on writing this little blog post.

In fact, Britney’s Circus show was the most expensive concert ticket I’ve ever bought. And Ingrid’s was … Continue reading Listen: Britney v. Ingrid

My schedule is intense today, along with a deposition, a networking lunch and the farmers market.

I’m in the process of writing my first (and perhaps last) book! I am about 40% of the way through and it is proving to be a cathartic and creatively challenging experience. I am hoping to have a working draft by the end of August. In addition, I am embarking on a Whole 30 eating program this month. Though I have lost 17 pounds in … Continue reading Currently Reading.
