What I’m Looking For In A Guy

Alright, I’m back with another post about being single.   And while today’s topic is one that I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined I’d be posting online for the whole wide world to see, I’m feeling spontaneous and going for it.  Partly because: 1. I’ve been...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Michelle

Today we are kicking off a new series on the blog called “I’ve Learned”, in which people share 10 things — any 10 things — that they have learned in life.  I have been looking forward to launching this for months, mostly because I’m just completely curious and excited to...

One Little Word 2014

One Little Word 2014

I’m the first to admit that I’m not the best at sticking with new year’s resolutions.  Heck, I even fell off the bandwagon multiple times with my three December Daily goals this past month, like, starting on Day 3.  I know. By contrast though, I’ve found the idea of choosing...

New Christmas Traditions

After having spent the month of December in Europe last year, it was fun to be back home with my family in Wichita this Christmas.  My sister and brother in law were in town from Chicago, my pup was looking very merry for the occasion, and we were all...

December Stitch Fix Review

Time for another Stitch Fix review!  Man, this is now my fourth month with Stitch Fix, and I feel like the fixes are starting to come quickly!  I mean, don’t get me wrong — it’s totally fun to have those little teal boxes with brand new clothes show up...

10 Photos NOT To Post For Online Dating (Guys Edition)

Happy holidays, everyone!!  I’m back with another post in my series on being single.  And since this time of the year can sometimes be a bit of a downer for singles, I thought we’d lighten the mood with the topic that never fails to entertain — online dating photos....

Give A Granola Bar

Somehow I have found myself in conversations with friends multiple times this past month about how to respond when someone on the street asks you for money.  Now that I live downtown, and go for daily walks, and run most of my errands around the neighborhood, I find myself...

December Daily

Happy December, everyone!  I hope that you all had a warm and merry Thanksgiving.  (And to my Jewish friends, I hope that you had a blast celebrating the a once-in-a-lifetime — or really, once-in-79,000-lifetimes! — Thanksgivukkah.  So cool!!) I spent most of my holiday week at home with family in...

Single For The Holidays

Alright, it’s officially three days before Thanksgiving, and my “man of the house” is still a 4-legged, tail-wagging Morkie.  Although his manliness is probably a little bit in question, being that he went in for another little Hallmark dog audition last week and they dressed him up as…(ahem)…a girl!  I...

November Stitch Fix Review

November marked my third “fix” with Stitch Fix.  And I’m happy to announce that it was a total success.  For the first time ever, I decided to keep all five pieces!! Well, to be honest, I was only planning to keep four.  But since you get 25% off your...

Poetry and Printing

I have to be honest.  My book club is awesome. Said awesomeness is due entirely to the group of amazing, creative, bright, thoughtful women who I’m grateful to call friends and fellow bookies.  But it is also due to the oh-so-official traditions that govern our little monthly get-togethers.  Hours...
