Of the moment // 1.30.15

One of the reasons why I blog is simply to have the space to write: getting things “on paper” helps me to process my feelings and organize my thoughts. I also love having a record of my life over the past few years: a place that holds all of my stories, my photos, the ups […]

Postcard from Charlottesville

Over the holidays, I headed down to Charlottesville, Virginia to spend Christmas with my boyfriend’s family. Although my boyfriend is a born-and-raised Manhattanite, his uncle was a law professor at University of Virginia and his aunt worked in PR department at the university–so my boyfriend has years and years of fond memories of Christmas in […]
