I woke up early, and my day has been full of sunshine and fantastic things (like breakfast with one my oldest friends, and lunch with my sweetie, and recipes for pork carnitas that I am so making this weekend).

I’m almost done with Paris (at least, as far as blog goes. My personal love affair with the city is just starting). I have only one more post I really need to tackle, about the brunch we had on a grey morning, but I can’t for the life of me remember the name of the…

It’s Wednesday, and I find that I’m still recovering from a weekend full of Bacchanalia spent up in Canada. There was so much … excess. I made so many bad decisions (most of them nutritional, though a few were sartorial) that at one point I turned to Rand and said, “This feels like college.” And…

  • I have lamented the existence of blue M&Ms (and mourned the loss of my beloved tan candies) for a long time. I've been systematically eating only the blue ones to try to return to my beloved 80s palette, and we're almost there.

#bringbacktanM&Ms
  • We may have gotten a little drastic at the salon today and I'm so delighted. I forgot how much I love having short hair. ❤️💇‍♀️
  • Okay, so maybe this unexpected cameo had us cracking up and also screaming at the TV.
  • Whirlwind trip with Captain Twinkly Eyes now over. So excited to write about the amazing shows we saw. Thank you for a wonderful time, @osfashland! See you again very soon.
  • Last show of the weekend, and the third in 24 hours. Phew! Thank you, @osfashland. #hairsprayosf
  • Me: Are you cold? Do you want to borrow my giant scarf?

Him: Yes. (Minutes later he started singing American Woman because he apparently knows that meme.)
  • Show #2. Thanks, @osfashland. We're so excited for Cambodian Rock Band. The energy of opening weekend is just so magical.
  • Me: "I want to do an Instagram style vignette with our @osfashland tickets." Him: "I want to be in it." #cambodianrockband #osf2019 #oregonshakespearefestival
  • It begins! So excited for opening weekend of this season's Oregon Shakespeare Festival!
  • My brother keeps using his phone's autoresponses to reply to texts and the niceness is so out of character it alarms me.
