I’ve been thinking a lot about love over this past year. Not just because Friday is Valentine’s Day, but because I feel like I am just really beginning to understand the power of love. I am incredibly lucky. I grew up loved; I never doubted then, nor do I now, that my parents love me. […]
And Now It’s Time For A Breakdown…..
In case you didn’t know, I ran a freaking half marathon last Saturday. This is my story. (cue E! True Hollywood Story music). Heads up: I swear a lot in this one. I had decided – after much back and forth in my own head – that I would stay in a hotel the night […]
