On our last morning in Germany, we went to Seeshaupt. I was absolutely not drunk, but some of my photos seem to suggest otherwise. I can only assume that wandering around a picturesque lake on a quiet morning has an intoxicating effect on me, and that I shouldn’t drive after visiting one. I also shouldn’t drive…

Dad’s Village, at Dusk.

My dad lives in a small Bavarian village about an hour outside of Munich. I usually don’t blog about it, even though it’s crazy adorable, because it’s also immensely sleepy and boring. The little hamlet shuts down after 6 or 7 pm on weekdays. And pretty much all day on weekends. And Mondays, too. It’s…

It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Bavarian, and all Rand wanted to do was go to Garmisch. He wanted to sit in the sunshine in a picturesque Bavarian town and do nothing all morning, besides eating a pretzel or three. “But we’ve been to Garmisch a dozen times,” I whined. “That’s because Garmisch is amazing.”…

  We are sitting in a cafe in Füssen, eating a way-too-sweet (but still delicious) merengata dessert when it happens. The screen on my new camera flashes “memory card full” and then goes to black. I can’t take any more photos. “What the hell?” I yell, and then, for reasons that are still confusing to…

I had been to Neuschwanstein once before, in 2005. I went with my parents. Both of them. I do not recommend going anywhere with my parents. I love them both – I really and truly do. Without them, I would not exist, and I am such a huge fan of existing. But good heavens, there…

The first time I saw this thing outside my dad’s house, I sort of snickered. – I remember staring at it, thinking, “Good heavens, that’s just awful. Whatever it is.” And then I pretty much ignored it, except to cast a sideways glance in its direction every time I passed. Now I realize, like nearly…

Helloooo from … the east coast of the United States? Yeah, that sounds about right. It’s presently 6:40 am in Boston, is where I woke up this morning. Which means it’s afternoon in the country that we just left yesterday, and it’s not quite 4am at home. A brief equation: [3:40 am – (5 hours…

  • No, I don't need midnight pastrami. But if I did ... #katzdeli #nyc #newyork
  • Found this tonight while cleaning out an old wallet of mine. Both the quote and the photo are about a decade old.
  • I've seen my book in two stores so far, and it's still really weird.

  • Happy Mother's Day, Momma. Thanks for always looking out for me. #mothersday
  • Okay, San Diego, I give. You're the prettiest girl at the dance.

  • I solemnly swear I am up to no good. #instasweets #desserts
  • There is something wonderful about being understood. My writer's group meets about once a month. We mostly eat and (if time allows) talk about our projects. This time we chatted about my book, which was released last week by Public Affairs and pairs well with French pastries and hot Cheetos. 🥐
One of my dear colleagues looked at me and said, "Did you sign my book? No you didn't, you witch." And I realized I'd be lost without these jerks. <3

  • By far, one of the coolest things about getting published is that I get to meet some amazing writers. Super excited to crack into Jo Piazza's How To Be Married after hearing her speak. #bookstagram #inmybag
  • No idea who sent me these flowers (there was no card). But they are beautiful and smell amazing. So thank you. #mysteryflowers
  • The book is out today! It's here! It's here! Go to your local bookstore, buy all the copies, read them like it's your job. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll probably know way too much about your friends Rand & Geraldine by the end.

To Geraldine: Congratulations my love! You wrote a damn good first book. I can't wait to see what you write next. #randtookthis #allovertheplace #bookbirthday #proudhusband #bookstagram

All Over The Place

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

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
