Dear Seattle Parks and Recreation, I don’t know if I like your tone, young lady.   Sincerely, The Everywhereist p.s. – Thanks to Ben for taking this picture because I am lame and forgot my camera.

Okay, so first off, apologies for a dick move on my part: I realize that postings have been rather slow as of late, and I’m truly sorry if I’ve disappointed either of my readers (Hi, guys!). I’ve been rather busy, and totally blocked (seriously, I tried posting about my friends’ wedding roughly 4 times with no…

I forgot to include the craziest thing about last weekend’s drive down to Astoria. Between exits 72 and 73  on I-5 in southern Washington, roughly 90 miles from Seattle, are these delightful billboards: – To quote my dear husband, WHAT THE CRAP HELL? We’ve seen them a few times (basically whenever we head down to…

I’m in San Diego for a week with my family – I’ll do a proper wrap-up when I get home, after I’m done eating my feelings and drinking away my pain. It is not that I don’t love my family. Really. I do … yeah.

I’m convinced that the best thing about traveling anywhere are those one-of-a-kind unexpected experiences no one else has.

  • The atrium from the restaurant we went to last night seemed to stretch on for miles - an architectural relic that now feels luxuriously wasteful.
  • I mean, any day that starts with these two handsome gents was bound to be a good one.
  • Been two years to the day, and sometimes I still reach for the phone or an envelope, forgetting that you aren't here anymore. I know that fatherhood wasn't your thing, and kids certainly weren't, either, but I still think we did pretty okay, Dad. Wherever you are, I hope it's quiet, and peaceful, and completely devoid of cheerful idiots who want to make smalltalk.
  • Train time. He leaned in and told me he liked me so much, which is good because I keep trying to eat his face.
  • Super honored to have spoken today at @hubspotlife. Was I completely incoherent and jet lagged? Yes. Did I sweat through my shirt, leaving noticeable pit stains? Yes. Did I talk about said pit stains? Sigh. Of course. But the crowd was super welcoming and kind despite my neuroses. Thanks so much to Ashley for making everything run smoothly, Rachel for being a familiar smiling face in the crowd, and everyone who showed up, asked questions, and had me sign a book.
  • This again? Heading to the east coast for a hot minute for some work. Traveling with Casey is like having a tall, shocking polite, excessively cynical child with us.
  • Coolest. Judeo. Christian. Kids. On. The. Block.
  • "Describe your personal style." Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally, duh.
  • There are times when you create amazing things in DnD for an incredibly tiny audience. As I told Rob, the deal almost feels Faustian.
  • When the delays just keep on coming but it's not so bad, really.

All Over The Place

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
