About a month ago, at a bar/coffee shop five blocks away from my old apartment in downtown Columbus, eight twentysomethings sat at table engaged in laughs and conversation. If you need a visual, picture Central Perk minus the couch and many more beer glasses than coffee mugs. Oh, I should also point out that most of these people met … Continue reading look for the girl with the broken smile, ask her if she wants to stay awhile.
Last night while finishing my post, preparing my grad program application, and watching my daily fix of Ellen, I dodged text after text from my dear friend, Mike. I love him, I really do...but he was driving me a little crazy with all the texting. Now I really do enjoy helping my boys out when it … Continue reading friends: is there such a thing as having too many?
My friend, Jen, just sent me a text, after donating $150 to our friend Dustin's fundraising efforts in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training program.

But I've had many days like this to learn that you really do have to experience bad days like this one in order to appreciate the good … Continue reading all you need is your girl friends
Good morning, Columbus! I feel like I was just here...probably because I was...a month ago. Wow! Has it really been that long since Kristin's and Jim's wedding?
