Donut Kill My Vibe. Good Vibes Only.

Current mood: via GIPHY I’m deciding that’s what it is. Even when you’re in a funk, when you don’t wanna, when looking at your to-do list makes you want to cry, when your neck keeps tweaking and twinging, when you’re just plain tired (all of which are true today), there are still things to celebrate….

Happy birthday, Caitlin!

It’s your birthday, and all eyes are on you! You are special. When you’re in the room, literally and figuratively, you absolutely light it up. Your wit, your intelligence, your badassery, your music knowledge, your ultimate bougie status… They are only facets of why you are so loved. Even though you have left broken hearts…

Farewell Tour of Portland

A few weeks ago we began a long goodbye for Caitlin. My bestie. My roomie. My heterosexual life partner. I say long because after living here for 4 years, we had quite the list of things to do, places to go, people to see before she could leave. It was a bit of a farewell…

That time I went out with a nudist

Ok, I didn’t go out on a date with a full-blown nudist. We were in a bar in Portland. Wearing many, many layers of clothes. Though it might not be that far-fetched since I have been kicked out of a coffee shop because my date was barefoot and have been on a second date to…

New year, schmew year

There is something special about welcoming in a new year. However, I always expect it to be a little more glamorous than it turns out to be… There was quite the celebration last year that I missed out on. While I was at home on the couch getting ridiculously sick, my friends were out dancing in…

Happy feet, not just for penguins

One of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite shows, Modern Family, demonstrates Gloria discovering the wonders of comfortable feet. After insisting on wearing 5″ heels to Disney World for the day, her husband Jay ends up forcing her to try on some comfy slippers instead. Her demeanor instantly changes from irritated to affectionate….
