I Got Nothing

In July 2015, I moved to California. In Michigan, where we came from, we had a 4 bedroom, 3400 square foot house with a 2-car, 2-story garage. AKA: we had a lot of space; we had a lot of shit.

Announcing…

About a year ago, Danielle Egan-Miller, president of Browne & Miller Literary Associates in Chicago reached out to me after seeing my Michigan Avenue Magazine article. We chatted and found out we were both from the exact same home town, went to the exact same high school, and even had the exact same “first job” ever (answering phones to take pizza orders at a little...

Then Comes Marriage

My husband and I celebrated one year of marriage on May 3rd. Did the day feel any different? Not really. I suppose it was like having your birthday as an adult. You know, like the day is sort of different – but only to you. I started the morning by reading a book in the sun on the deck with my pups. How ironic that...
