An anniversary to remember

November 30, 2014

December 1st marks the one year anniversary of our destination wedding in Boracay Philippines.  It was one of the craziest days of our lives.  The groom barely made it in time for his own wedding after being stranded in Bangkok and Hong Kong for three days due to a not-valid-for-long-enough passport. I lost three pounds and […]

‘Twas the best night of our lives

January 5, 2014

Three weeks later and I’m still so high from our amazing holiday. I’m buzzing with nostalgia. What to do with all this energy? Wish I could bottle it up and save for days when life feels more routine than it ever ought to.

Tell all the women to stop! The superfluous art of girl talk

August 4, 2010

If you’ve ever been at a Starbucks long enough to eavesdrop on two women chatting over coffee, you’ll realize quickly (especially if you’re a man) just how crazy the world of girl talk can be.  Scratch that.  It’s not crazy, it’s … ridiculous.  We women are ridiculous.  Even though I participate in said girl talk […]

Sometimes, we all need a small reminder…

May 26, 2010

… about What Matters Most (from The Purpose Driven Life) Learning to love unselfishly is not an easy task. It runs counter to our self-centered nature. That’s why we’re given a lifetime to learn it. Relationships, not achievements or the acquisition of things, are what matters most in life. Love leaves a legacy. How you […]
