Meet Me in Chicago…

I had every intention of checking in from the road last Friday and sharing some photos/stories from my first day-or-so in Chicago- where I spent a few days leading into this past weekend for an impromptu getaway. Of course, anything can happen when traveling- which was pretty much the case when I first arrived in […]

A Month to Remember: September 2021

Oh September, as much as I love and live for all things October and Halloween and spooky- it’s always so hard to say goodbye to you!

On The Road Again…

Hello from Swarthmore, Pennsylvania! I’m on day two of three of a mini-vacation/road trip I embarked on yesterday morning to meet up with longtime friends and see one of my favorite bands perform at the first music festival I’ve been able to attend since 2019 and long before the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The Stars at Night Are Big and Bright…”

When I first told my friends and family back home that I intended to spend a week in Marfa, Texas for a road trip/vacation- I was typically met with two questions back-to-back. The first being “where?” and the second being “why?” Understandable, of course. I’d never been before, after all- and it wasn’t like Marfa […]

Hot Hot Heat…

I’ve been back home on the East Coast for just under a week now, but my tan lines and cravings for all things In-N-Out Burger remain strong and steadfast. I’m seriously wishing a double double right now, and any other fast-food chain for an impromptu “cheat day” just isn’t going to cut it. As many […]
