{PHOTOS} Kentucky Bluegrass is My Red Carpet

I recently was given the opportunity to spend 24 hours in Louisville, Kentucky. Naturally, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Churchill Downs was the very location where every race took place ...

The Things She Carried

So, I’ve been taking this descriptive writing class and I learned SO MUCH. Seriously, my brain exploded it was awesome. One of the favorite things I learned was how to describe a fictional character by describing “what they carry.” Yes, just like in the book “The Things They Carried,” Only-I’m totally describing a confused and […]

She was wound tightly but was effortlessly frayed like a twine rope, pinned down with insecurities. A Marilyn Monroe of sorts. Her angst and determination to overcome her faults was stronger than a well-oiled machine.  As if the fuel operating the engine couldn’t possibly run out. Her hair fell down her shoulders and onto his […]

My Quarter Life Crisis at a Rare Blue Moon Happy Hour

The lighting in the bar was perfectly dim for a Friday night, hiding every outlandish thought I had floating along my fuzzy mind. Fuzzy because I was deep into my 32 oz. Blue Moon.

I’m Painting My Parent’s Basement **moment of silence**

The other day, I walked into Home Depot with a mission. A mission to find a soft, neutral color that would match the awkward black trim of…my parents’ basement. That’s right. One month ago, I moved back home. And now, I’m sitting here with my dear mother at our kitchen counter in full on PJ-wear […]

There I Go Again. . .Over Thinking Everything

“I don’t care what you think about me…I don’t think about you at all.” -Coco Chanel If I were to ever win a gold medal in the Olympics, it would be for over-thinking EVERYTHING. I guess I fit the typical girl stereotype. It’s totally like me to stand in the cosmetics aisle in Target for […]

I need a focus adjustment. Let’s just say I’ve been a little on the negative side lately. At first, I tried blaming it on the crappy weather (like I usually do) and then I realized I could be dealing with a personal problem. For example, whenever I’m about to do virtually anything, I immediately envision the […]
