So, wait, you’re a travel writer?

Well, kind of. I mean, I travel a lot and I write about it, but I don’t know if my blog is actually useful for-

That sounds amazing.

Yeah, it’s pretty fun … Honestly, sometimes I think it’s wasted on me. I get motion sickness and I’m sort of a homebody so-

You must have the most glamorous life.

Huh?

You TRAVEL THE WORLD and then you write about it. That sounds like a dream.

Um … yes.

So what do you do on your trips? Do you spend every day taking photos and exploring?

Sure.

Where have you been recently?

Let’s see … a few months ago we were in Scotland.

Ooooh, what was it like?

Um … very relaxing.

That is amazing. I hope you appreciate it.

Yes. Appreciate.

And never take a single moment of it for granted. 

Nope. ENJOY EVERY MOMENT! EVERY SINGLE ONE!

Why are you screaming?

Just … making a point about how much I don’t squander my life and how it totally isn’t wasted on an ingrate like me.

Ooookay … Hey, do you have any tips on how to beat jet lag?

Nope.

  • 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
