There might be something wrong
when you think your ex-boyfriend would enjoy hearing that you spotted Tyra Banks in NARS.
The rain pattering throughout the night reminded me of Florida, and the warmth of your body next to mine, the need for nakedness just for comfort, reminded me of summer.
I really want this.
But I’m going to the gym instead. Peter Pan Bakery has been saved in my Yelp bookmarks since Idon’tknowwhen. Maybe one day I’ll finally indulge.
The 15-year-old in me is still surprised when I realize not everyone was obsessed with Copeland and Kurt Halsey when they were in high school. Most people have no idea who they are. I still check out Halsey’s most recent work from time to time, however, and remember the happiness I felt from something so simple, whimsical and pretty. (I confess- this painting was the inspiration for my...
Last night we discussed boycotting winter- we will don bright colors! No more socks! Wear tank tops under our coats! Swap warm drinks for tropical ones! Get our coffee iced! So you can imagine that waking up to a surprise snow at 2AM makes this defensive move against the season slightly more tricky. This afternoon I helped a woman in Sarasota as she shopped poolside for her son, and when I told...
I was with the boy I met while I was missing you when I saw the boy I was missing when I met you.
Spring Fever is near
When I rounded the corner on the way to work yesterday morning a man caught my eye and said, “Yeah girl, you a model!” Today, another called after me, “Your blue eyes are beautiful.” The snow is melting and so are our frozen exteriors. A few more weeks and we can let the energy that has been pent up all winter out- wander from bar to bar, take a leisurely stroll through...
Sometimes I’m not sure if I majored in Merchandising or Psychology.
her head is always in the clouds
I love feeling unaccomplished after dragging my ass out of bed at 5AM to go to the gym and ride nine miles and work out for an hour. And then getting pummeled by the wind on my way home so forcefully that I wish it were a person so I could kick their throat makes it even better. Until I get home and there is no heat. Or hot water. But there IS coffee liqueur in the fridge. I nearly always find...
Just when I start to feel as though I’m ahead I realize I’ve broken pace and fallen behind. But what is life without a little frustration, a little competition?
a tardy resolution
Do you remember the feeling of discovery when you realized you were good at something? Maybe you felt humbled, maybe you felt proud. Or perhaps your talents have always been a part of you and you can’t quite place the moment in time that you realized you had an untapped ability, something in you that you never knew was there. My discoveries were never my own. I only realized certain...
The core is still cold
but I feel a warmth around the edges. (A turning point, a change, the brink is near.)
Music always creates memories, stirs something inside you, transports you to a particular time and place without your permission. There are a few songs that never fail to rip me from the present; my mind blanks, and suddenly I am 16. It is 6:53AM and the sun is rising behind Brandon Town Center, my windows are down and the cool morning breeze whips through my car, my hair, creating a cyclone of...
30 and sunny
I have been thinking of crop tops, patios and sangria pitchers a lot lately. And given Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring, I’ll allow my imagination to run away with itself.
