These Things Called Doors

This might be a bit odd, but after having spent the past several years living with my parents, my brother, my grandmother and occasionally my grandfather, the things that intrigue me the most about home ownership are: Being able to take naps whenever I want without feeling the need to explain myself. Being able to…

Confessions of a Plant Killer

My mom is, amongst other things, a fabulous gardener and florist. She does wedding flowers, volunteers for the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, leads workshops, judges garden contests and can grow just about anything, anywhere.

My 2014 Hit List

I like sleeping.  A lot.  Hence the reason I want to murder people who wake me up earlier than I intend to wake up. For the past few months, TWD has been at the top of my hit list.  He gets up early—so early that it’s still dark out.  I understand that this is a…

For the past year and…

Santa's Christmas Eve gifts for the whole family...

A Little Square Box

I’ve never had a boyfriend spend Christmas Eve before (perhaps because I’ve always ended my relationships just before the holidays) but now that I have, I’m never going back. Boyfriends make Christmas way more fun. They help with your grandmother when she passes out in church holding a lit candle.  (Not sure if it was…
