o-h-i-o, i-m-i-s-s-y-o-u.

If home is truly where the heart is, then Ohio will always be home. Lately, as the thirties continue to make me more maternal and sentimental than I ever imagined being, I've been realizing more and more that my heart has been stranded there since I relocated to Chicago nearly five years ago. And after a … Continue reading o-h-i-o, i-m-i-s-s-y-o-u.

i’m not in kansas, that’s the one thing I know for sure.

For the past two weeks, I've been telling myself to Just blog it out.  That used to always make you feel better.  But the truth is, I've stared at this screen many nights trying to do just that and absolutely nothing comes out.  There's no image of motivation, or song lyric for inspiration.  No title … Continue reading i’m not in kansas, that’s the one thing I know for sure.

the sun goes down, the stars come out. and all that counts is here and now. my universe will never be the same. i’m glad you came.

honest words from a very tired girl

Sooooo much to say.  But given the fact that I just got home (surprisingly sober) and my alarm is going off in less than 3 hours, I'm going to keep this post very, very short.  To be honest, if I had time and energy to write then I'm not really quite sure what I would say.  … Continue reading honest words from a very tired girl

let’s all sing it together: “it’s a small world after all”

To sum up this past weekend best, I'll say that, Chicago is a big city but it's such a small world.  The whirlwind that was this past weekend- and really week- reminded me of both of these concepts.  Take today (Sunday night is when I'm writing this) for instance.  Within an hour of waking up I found myself on a bus … Continue reading let’s all sing it together: “it’s a small world after all”
