I Think It’s Raining – New York

Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while know that my little sister is an actress. Her first feature length indie film, I Think It’s Raining, premiered last summer, and next month it’s finally screening in New York (where she lives.) If you’re in town you should go check it out [...]

it’s finally starting to feel like spring is here, and I am so ready for it that I can’t even stand it (although I actually only like spring because it means that summer is almost here. I live for summer, and literally start waiting for it to come back in October every year.) Spring also [...]

I got home last night from Chicago, which over the last few years has definitely earned its place as one of my favorite cities in the world. I was in town to visit my best friend Charlie, although he kept joking that I was just crashing with him while on a business trip. The photo [...]

So I started doing things a little differently a few years ago – setting one easily achievable goal for the year, and then picking a keyword for myself [...]

I am so lucky to have the friends I [...]

How is it November already? Somethings that have been going on/catching my eye I love Caitlin Wilson Textiles new collection (pictured above), and just need to decide which of the pillows to buy for the sofa in my new office.

Last weekend I wrapped up my year’s main wedding season (I still have four to go before 2011 ends, but they’re spread out. Also, last weekend’s wedding was absolutely stunning – look for a post on it soon) and pretty much immediately headed out of town to catch up on email, paperwork, and sleep. All [...]
