Boozey Brunches

Once upon a time there was a lazy Sunday in May, seventy-eight degrees, a carrot-infused  bloody mary, a roasted beet and honey salad, lavender scones, and three perfect hours with my childhood best friend. Then there was a closet shelf of just the perfect size to become a shrine to Chanel … the perfect pumpsContinue reading “Boozey Brunches”

A Code No One Understands

Sitting in a noisy corner of a quiet bar there’s a story tickling the corners of my mind, a song of Pirates, Cowboys, and runaway mothers on spring break – abandoned in a forbidden and foreign place. There are lying lies, and the damn liars who tell them covetous addicts, and drunks, Telling stories without telling the storyContinue reading “A Code No One Understands”

This moment, if I am fortunate, will become a treasure as well, clutched in the palm of my memory, brought forward on future days,Continue reading “Golden Rays of Parenthood”

Getting Lost to Find Yourself Again

Each of us has a place, a time, or a talent where we find ourselves at our most authentic – the outdoors, an athletic field, plucking at the strings of an heirloom guitar. For me, “Me” exists best when I’m far away from the expectations of who others expect “Me” to be. In China I canContinue reading “Getting Lost to Find Yourself Again”
