Same Mistakes

Thanks, Girls, for introducing me to the song that most succinctly describes my life up to this moment!


Greatness Is For All of Us

There are no grand celebrations here. No speeches. No bright lights. But there are great athletes. Somehow we've come to believe that greatness is reserved for the chosen few, for the superstars. The truth is, greatness is for all of us. This is not about lowering expectations. It's about raising them for every last one of us. Because greatness is not in one special place. And it is not in one special person. Greatness is wherever somebody is trying to find it. #findgreatness


All Summer Long

So if we're not going to be "crazy busy" all the time anymore, after reading Tim Kreider's article, what are we going to do?! Oh right, have a Calm Down Party, ALL SUMMER LONG. I'll wear my vader visor and sequins if you bring a sandwich.

(I forget where I found this gem, but I'm pretty sure it's by my favorite, Nathaniel Russell.)


An Argument for Idleness

"Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness; obviously your life cannot possibly be silly or trivial or meaningless if you are so busy, completely booked, in demand every hour of the day."

The 'Busy' Trap


Nana Vera

My nana, Vera, would have loved this outfit. Comfy and coordinated. Her jewels are gorgeous and show her care. She is just precious. I hope I have this much style and confidence when I'm her age - just like my nana!


Hiking in Sequins

Carbondale, Basalt, Silver Plume, Aspen, Glenwood Springs: just got back from a few days enjoying the big sky, fresh air, red earth, green trees and beautiful mountains of my youth. And I have to say - I cannot wait to go hiking in sequins. I'll put on my baseball cap over my unwashed hair, but I'll still be showing my flair. It's who I am: impractically practical.

Shalom Harlow is Cool

She's been around for a while, knows how to have fun, and is stupid beautiful. She's just cool. End of story.
