Reading challenge 2013 – part two

Back in May I wrote a “quick” rundown of the books I’d read so far in the year, working toward my goal of 30 books. I’ve been meaning to write another update post but life got in the way. I finished my challenge, reaching my goal. Yippee! I’m not sure if it’s cheating but I … Continue reading

New year, new you, new blog

Since I’ve been off from work for the past week for the holidays, I thought I would take some time to catch up on me and kick off the new year with some perspective. Like most people I’ve been wrapped up in the day-to-day and I tend to forget the bigger picture. Today I took … Continue reading

What does 26 mean exactly?

I’m starting to have trouble with picking songs for my many months and years. When it comes to summarizing an entire year in three-ish minutes, well, you can see how that’s not easy. I don’t know why I’ve decided to track my life like this (Liz White soundtrack part one and two). It made sense at 18. Music … Continue reading

A girls’ weekend in Virginia wine country

When my best friend got engaged, I immediately started thinking about a girls’ weekend getaway. She’s one of the funnest people to be around so I knew it would be a blast. We kind of had a mini girls’ weekend in D.C. last year so I was ready for this. My bachelorette was two years … Continue reading

Final dinner at Cactus Cantina with the last of the AU grad school crew.

On friendship

I’ve been thinking about friendship quite a lot lately. In June, my D.C. book club read Rachel Bertsche‘s “MWF Seeking BFF.” It’s about a Chicago-transplant’s year-long search for a new best friend. Then I moved back to Columbia, where I’ve been pondering new/old friendships. To be honest, friendship is something I think about pretty often. … Continue reading

Blogging, connections, self

Is blogging egotistical? I had essentially this argument/conversation with my brother over the weekend. It started when I read a piece in Jezebel about a story about a blogger. Whoa, that sounds complicated. Essentially the Jezebel story kind of pulls out pieces of the news profile about a blogger to highlight some of the more … Continue reading

McEuroTrip14: Paris day 7 in one word

Big. I fell a bit behind and part of that was because of the size of the ground we had to cover in Paris in three days.

McEuroTrip14: Day 6 in Haarlem in one word

Quaint. It’s just like Amsterdam but with fewer people. I might also go with “adorable.”

McEuroTrip14: Day 5 in Amsterdam in one word

Magic. Gin, romance, frites, history, art, architecture. Really this place has it all.

McEuroTrip14: Day 4 in Amsterdam in one word

Romance. How is this not considered the most romantic city? We will see Paris. We will see.

McEuroTrip14: Day 3 Castle Neuschwanstein in one word

Crowded. From the moment we arrived on the train to Fussen until we returned to Munich we were surrounded and fighting for seats or a view. It was exhausting. But worth it.
