My Savannah Story

It's been a while! You may or may not have noticed, but I recently enjoyed a much needed vacation out of town. Over St. Patrick's Day weekend, I traveled with friends to Savannah, Georgia and experienced one of the country's largest St. Patrick's Day parades. Upon our exit from the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, I… Continue reading My Savannah Story

On February, Your Twenties, and Joan Didion

Hello, it's been a week or so since my last post. Haven't been particularly inspired by anything; sometimes you just need to live to be inspired. Friday night became quite the extravaganza I didn't expect and normally wouldn't like as I was more or less a sleeping-and-eating machine the next day and my plans to… Continue reading On February, Your Twenties, and Joan Didion

Free Solo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urRVZ4SW7WU On President's Day, I made a rare excursion to the movie theatre to see a movie I was only made aware of the day before, called Free Solo. Produced by National Geographic, this film documents professional rock climber, Alex Honnold's, successful ascent to the top of El Capitan's 900-metre vertical rock face, located in… Continue reading Free Solo

Winter Blues

It's been a really odd week, to say the least. The dangerous weather in Chicago on Wednesday and Thursday left a lot of people cooped up in their homes for safety. On Wednesday, I did not leave my apartment one time, even though it looked beautiful outside with bright, clear blue skies and an appearance… Continue reading Winter Blues

Back At The Opera

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

Sweet November: A Walk in Lincoln Park

Hello! I started my Saturday morning around 8am preparing for a walk, as opposed to my usual Bodypump class. I did this for two reasons. One, I've had another mini neck strain that requires lower key exercise, and two, time is running out before the leaves all fall. Luckily, it is such a beautiful day… Continue reading Sweet November: A Walk in Lincoln Park

The Tale

On Saturday night, I went to visit and sleepover at my dear friend Arie's newer home in Evanston. We had a girl's night, which included face masks by Tony Moly, delicious and very healthy snacks prepared by Arie, and a couple of movies interrupted frequently by our typical disjointed chats, talking about everything in our… Continue reading The Tale

Fall is Hygge

Fall is the greatest season in the year. While there are elements to enjoy about all the seasons, nothing gives me hygge (a Norwegian and Danish word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment) the way that fall does. So, in honor of it swiftly approaching, I thought… Continue reading Fall is Hygge
