All Downhill From Here

I exhibit a lot of quintessentially millennial traits: I remember life before the internet, cell phones and area codes I don’t have cable but my phone’s never out of reach I’ll add avocado to anything, can use a library card catalog and have very strong feelings about Topanga’s decision to enroll at Pennbrook University overContinue reading “All Downhill From Here”

Hair of the Dog

Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest beer-drinking nights of the year, and whether you threw back too many because your team won or because your team lost or because watching Steven Tyler reverse-age Benjamin Button-style while racing a Kia Stinger made you painfully aware of your own fleeting mortality, you may be feelingContinue reading “Hair of the Dog”

20/18 Vision

Thank You Kindly

As is my tradition post-turkey coma, I spent the Thanksgiving weekend thinking about all the things I’m grateful for. I’m thankful for my family and friends’ good health. I’m thankful for a loving first year of marriage. I’m thankful shy little Lucille has finally started to express herself freely. Despite the divided political climate, theContinue reading “Thank You Kindly”

Choose Your Battles

I tend to have a pretty low bar when signing up for road races. Sure, I’ll consider the crucial things, like whether I can actually run that distance or if I’m physically out of town. But mostly I’ll register for anything that crosses my path, especially if 1. The swag is good (see this weekend’sContinue reading “Choose Your Battles”
