Hello all! How is everything going with you? I feel that many of my friends are going through a surge in busyness in the business realm and I am no exception. Sometimes it's hard to find the energy to write after a long day, but much like working out, it makes me feel better when… Continue reading February Goings On
On Thursday night, at the tail end of the Polar Vortex in Chiberia, I attended the Lyric Opera of Chicago for the second time with my friend Sarah! We saw La bohème, an opera by Giacomo Puccini, directed by Richard Jones, and conducted by Stegano Sarzani. Though I absolutely loved seeing Il trovatore a few… Continue reading Back At The Opera
Hi everyone. Sorry for the delay in postings this week. Work has been insanely busy and I just have been harder pressed for time. That said, I had some ideas a-brewin` and I decided since they're rather miscellaneous or komono (thanks Marie Kondo), I would do another round of Smörgåsbord! Alright Volume V; let's do… Continue reading Smörgåsbord V

Admittedly, it was a bit… Continue reading My Top 10 Christmas Songs!
Hello friends. I got a lot done that has essentially been looming over me for awhile. It really started with an impromptu organization of all my papers at home. I feel like a mafioso or grandmother (or both) when I say "my papers" and I quite enjoy that. Retirement statements, insurance policies, lease agreements, oh… Continue reading I Vant to Be Alone! Or Do I?
Do you guys look at apartment, condo, or house listings on the reg? Do you ever look at puppies online and come up with all of their full name in an instant? Do you ever Google "____ pain treatment" on a daily basis? Do you delete the same horsesh*t dating apps off your phone every… Continue reading Am I Where I’m Supposed to Be?
I haven't done one of these in awhile, but that doesn't mean I'm not discovering new accounts on Instagram that capture my imagination, make me laugh, teach me something, or all three! Round III of IG account recommendations. My hope is you may find some value in checking them out if you're a regular Instagram… Continue reading The Instagram Accounts That Give Me Life!: Part III
Last weekend was spent celebrating my honorary "niece", Emma's, fourth birthday! It was gorgeous weather in the suburbs; sunny, blue skies with a nice breeze. It was a fun mixture of family, friends, adults, and kids, as well as numerous unicorn related paraphernalia, including a cake, stuffed animals, various gifts, and balloons. From my estimation,… Continue reading Birthday Planz
