Avoid running into the UPS man in your bra, particularly while 9 months pregnant.

Friends. My mom has imparted invaluable advice to me my entire life, however, few have been as remarkable and true as her latest gems. As we moved from a downtown loft to our new home, she said, “It’s a lot harder to hide from people in a house when you don’t want to answer the […]

Just Take Anna’s Birthday Present, Okay?! (Giveaway)

Yesterday on September 28th, I turned 34. 34!! It’s actually one of those boring age birthdays that’s no big whoop somewhere in the middle of life, but I thought, “What if I made this THE BEST YEAR EVER!?” My first stop to making it the best year ever, I decided to order Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big […]

I’m Writing a Book! Fingers Crossed it Doesn’t Suck, Everyone!

The news for the past two months has been horrific on multiple levels. And, oh the opinions! We all have so many, […]

The Reason I Don’t Have Children

I’ve hesitated to write about this for a long time. Not because I didn’t want to – in fact I’ve really wanted to. I suppose I just didn’t know how to go about it or when would be a good time. When bad things happen, as a humor writer, it can be hard to navigate […]

A Douche Saved My Life (and no, that’s not a metaphor)

No, I’m not saying the lead singer of Nickelback saved my life. I’m talking a literal douche here, people. My mind is continuously blown by the existence of life. Think about it. It’s estimated that the chances of you being you – is 1 in 400 quadrillion. QUADRILLION. My brain doesn’t even comprehend that type of number. Put […]

Warning: When the Old Way isn’t Working Anymore, Life May Kick You in the Jewels

When I first started this little space as a way to document the pursuit of my purpose, I figured I would have lots to talk about on a regular basis.

For Those Who Search For Purpose

I’ve received a few emails and comments from some of you asking, “But what if I don’t know what my purpose is?” I’ve been wanting to answer this for awhile, but I’ve delayed because it’s meaty, complex. Frankly, it’s hard to answer. I’ve read a lot of books about finding one’s purpose. If you’re searching, […]

Just Don’t Be Too Busy To Read This, K?

I’m really busy. Like so busy, I only have time to post how busy I am on Facebook and then keep hitting refresh to see who’s liking and commenting on my status, and then like – for real. I gotta go. Maybe I have time for one more Buzzfeed quiz, but then for real, you […]
