No matter what anyone says, I'll tell you that friends with benefits can work. I know this because I've been in two friends with benefits situations and they've helped me understand why they can work, as well as why they can't. But I'll focus on why they can, which coincidentally draws upon why they can't. … Continue reading let me tell you a thing or two about the phenomenon known as “friends with benefits”…
Last night my friend, Sadie, and I toasted our glasses of wine to some good quality girl time on a rooftop overlooking downtown Chicago. Two single twentysomethings deciding to escape the stresses of everyday life thru wine & friend therapy. With a cool breeze, sporadic raindrops, and the always enjoyable Chicago skyline, Sadie and I found ourselves in an easy-flowing … Continue reading two single ladies, two bottles of wine, one rooftop, and a whole lot to talk about.
In order to write this post to the best of my ability, I must admit that I've been watching The Bachelorette this season. Now in mentioning this, it is necessary to remind you that I've stuck with my boycott and haven't watched a single episode of The Bachelor since the Jake-Choosing-Vienna moment shook my guilty … Continue reading if i talk really slowly, if i try real hard to make my point dear, that you have my heart. here i go. i’d tell you but you already know.
Another day, another Grey's Anatomy quote running through my mind. This line was from those early seasons of the Addison- Derek - Meredith love triangle. I can still hear Meredith's voice cry out, "Pick me. Choose me. Love me." I remember thinking how desperate she sounded; how weak. All because of a guy? Because of … Continue reading pick me. choose me.
"Don't be afraid to fall in love. It's the only thing that matters in life. Fall in love with as many things as possible.

This line from Country Strong is notably one of my most favorite lines ever- for obvious … Continue reading i should steal you away. in the middle of the night, come take your heart.
Well kids, the sun has been shining here in Chicago, allowing us to flirt with the notion that winter may F.I.N.A.L.L.Y. be on its way out the door. So after the sad goodbyes to Kristin & Cindy (Kristin's mom) early this morning, I pulled myself together- as much as possible- and headed downtown to the office. As soon as … Continue reading “i’m sure i’ll find a way to ruin this somehow.”
When I think back on my History of Boys...I realize what good taste I have. Okay, there were some questionable crushes & boyfriends back in my middle school days- no names mentioned- but you Hampton kids may remember my dating track record.

But in all seriousness, … Continue reading hey stephen, i could give you fifty reasons why i should be the one you choose. all those other girls, well, they’re beautiful but would they write a song for you?
I could write a book on fate...and for the last six years of my life I swore I would. But that was then and, as they say, this is now. All of the lessons learned and eye-opening experiences between then and now have left me with the desire to (instead) write my little novel about choices. Because if … Continue reading “all i have are the choices i make”
So I have this theory known as 1:45 am Last Call which I came up with one night out in Columbus after years of experience closing bars down. Entertained by my favorite activity, People Watching, I noticed groups of 1 boy- 1 girl all around me. Everywhere. At tables. Around the bar. Even walking towards the exit. As the actual … Continue reading another night, another bar… just another boy?
My Couch & Me: The perfect way to end a Moan-day. Along with my new favorite OU tee-shirt, leggings, pigtail braids, and a blanket wrapped around me and my cold-inflicted body. (Blah.) And even better, I got to enjoy a new episode of my guilty pleasure, Gossip Girl, and in particular, one particular story line between Blair, … Continue reading if you really need me- ever- i am there. xoxo.
