And we’re off! Rand and I are going to be traveling for the next little week or so. We’ll be in Ireland for a wedding, and then we’ll be roaming around the country for a few days. My husband was originally going to take a week off, but instead he’s lined up, like, four speaking…

WTF Weds: First Class Cat

Posted on
Sep 12, 2012

– Growing up, we had a cat. You know what? That statement isn’t quite accurate. We actually had several cats. But there was one cat that sort of stood out from the rest. A spry little calico with markings that I still remember by heart: one eye was rimmed in black, the other in orange,…

It’s Friday! And it’s September. I couldn’t be happier. This is the month of my birthday. And my wedding anniversary. As well as the month of the birthdays and anniversaries of dozens of people I know and love. Seriously, it doesn’t get any better than September. And did I mention that the sun is shining?…

  • Take note: if you ask your husband if you can move to NYC roughly four dozen times, he will start to cave a little.
  • Incredible reading by the love of my life to a packed room at NeueHouse Madison Square. So proud of you, @randderuiter, and the amazing emcee work by @michaeliconking.
  • Re-posting this photo that @wilreynolds took of us and his youngest near the beach outside of Lisbon. We're back home now, and I can't decide what I miss more: this little guy and his brother, or Portugal. Actually, scratch that. I know.
  • This place looks like a damn fairy tale.
  • Lunch with a view of the water, and some of the best seafood of my life.
  • The entire drive from Sintra to Lisbon looks like this. It's just miles of blue sky and rocky beaches.
  • No filter. This is just what Sintra looks like.
  • This street artist does amazing collages of animals from hunks of discarded plastic he collects (part of an effort to raise awareness about some of the most vulnerable victims of pollution). They're all over Lisbon, but we managed to get a close up view of this one.
  • Thousand watt smile on the little dude, and I am done.
  • Those eyes though.
