“Sometimes I worry about you. Because you spend a lot of time alone, you know?” – my husband

“I’m kinda hungry.”

“CHERRIES.”

“Huh, yeah. I could go for some cherries.”

(Several minutes and a pound of cherries later …)

“Ugh. I don’t feel well.”

“EAT MORE CHERRIES.”

“I honestly don’t think that would be a good idea.”

“EAT. CHERRIES.”

“But I already feel kinda sick–”

“CHERRIES.”

(Eats another half pound of cherries. Severe gastrointestinal discomfort ensues.)

“Oh, god. I think … I think I’m legitimately ill. I think it was the cher-”

“DO NOT BLAME CHERRIES.”

“You’re kidding, right? We do this every year.”

“NO.”

“Yes we do. We eat, like, three pounds of cherries in one sitting, and then we wonder why -”

“LA LA LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU-“

“WE WONDER WHY WE FEEL SICK.”

“I feel fine.”

“No, you don’t.”

“Do too.”

“I think I should call Rand and tell him we’re sick.”

“Tell him to buy more cherries.”

Look, you guys, sometimes you just need to eat cherries until you run the risk of pooping in the middle of gym class.

  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴
  • "I hit the jackpot." That's how I once heard Michael J. Fox describe his marriage years ago, and it stayed with me. I've never found a better way of describing our relationship than that. Bells ring. Lights flash. Coins spill everywhere. Now, where's my complimentary breakfast?
  • Someone sent Rand socks with his face all over them, and he's really bothered by this but I'm gonna rock the hell out of them.
  • I told him to stop looking at the camera.
  • Eating junk food on the ferry with this guy right before dinner is kind of the dream.
  • Does it still count as photobombing when you love it?
  • Some hardcore stuff happening in the studio today. #muglife #ceramics
