We headed down to Ashland a few weeks ago to celebrate our anniversary. On the way there, we decided to stop in Roseburg, since we remembered some friends of ours had stopped there while driving down to our wedding. They said the town was adorable, and that they had a really nice time. I’ve now…

I’ll confess – I’m beginning to worry that roughly a quarter of all my posts are Dick Moves. Am I growing impatient with humanity? Is it impossible to avoid frustration and Dick Moves! while traveling? Are we too stressed as a society to be nice to one another? I’m not really sure. My husband rarely…

Rand and I are on our way to Oslo, though by the time I post this, we’ll already be there (barring the usual global disasters). We’re currently in the Newark Airport, still reeling from our adventure at Sea-Tac eight hours ago. Needless to say, we made the flight because of Rand, who managed to get us through a…

Dear Hotel Deluxe, I like you guys. A lot. I’m smitten over the old movie stills and quotes that line the walls of your hotel.

Dude. Duuuuuuuude. Seriously, I’m so effing angry/shocked/bemused, I’m having trouble writing this post. But I will write it. I MUST write it. Because, gentle reader(s), you must know about this Dick Move. Especially if you take road trips. Or go anywhere in your car. Remember how I said never to leave anything in your trunk?…

On some level, I feel like I should apologize for this post. Because really, I’m in the sort of weird, ridiculously sappy euphoria that comes from being stupid in love. And no one wants to read that. At no time has a conflict between two people over who has cuter freckles ever been interesting to…

  • Sometimes your friends get married and you have a group hug and everything is wonderful.
  • No, I don't need midnight pastrami. But if I did ... #katzdeli #nyc #newyork
  • Found this tonight while cleaning out an old wallet of mine. Both the quote and the photo are about a decade old.
  • I've seen my book in two stores so far, and it's still really weird.

  • I solemnly swear I am up to no good. #instasweets #desserts
  • There is something wonderful about being understood. My writer's group meets about once a month. We mostly eat and (if time allows) talk about our projects. This time we chatted about my book, which was released last week by Public Affairs and pairs well with French pastries and hot Cheetos. 🥐
One of my dear colleagues looked at me and said, "Did you sign my book? No you didn't, you witch." And I realized I'd be lost without these jerks. <3

  • By far, one of the coolest things about getting published is that I get to meet some amazing writers. Super excited to crack into Jo Piazza's How To Be Married after hearing her speak. #bookstagram #inmybag
  • No idea who sent me these flowers (there was no card). But they are beautiful and smell amazing. So thank you. #mysteryflowers
