Career Puberty. Gross.

Being a woman in my thirties is weird enough. I’m not married and I don’t have kids. So, you know, I’m “different.” I live downtown instead of the suburbs and I like to stay busy at concerts, tailgates, happy hours, networking events, and dinners out.

But if you’re like me, it’s so satisfying to watch someone open a present followed by a spark of “wow, this person really thought about what would make me happy.” Yeah, a list isn’t necessarily going to solve that problem, but hopefully it’ll give you… Read more →

Everything Could Use A Little Room to Breathe

When you listen to a really great piece of music – it’s those bars before the build up and crescendo take place. In art, it’s the white space or whatever isn’t the point of focus.
