Someday I want to host dinner parties. Often.

September 29, 2010


I keep finding myself still awake, even when my body tells me I’m ready to sleep.

September 26, 2010

Sweatshirt weather, donuts and cider, corn maze, apple picking, touch football. It’s officially Autumn.

September 25, 2010

Sometimes being here messes with my sense of reality.

September 24, 2010


I couldn’t get there soon enough. I love these people and this laughter.

September 22, 2010

I’ve been in a slump the past few days. Lacking creativity and energy.

September 20, 2010

Jupiter is only 368 million miles away tonight. Thinking about the universe makes me feel so small, but in a good way.

September 19, 2010

It was the kind of day where the stress and worry of the previous night had melted away by morning.

September 17, 2010

I’m getting used to being here. My home is my home once again.

September 16, 2010

I’m working on spending my free time meaningfully. I think that should include a heavy dose of being outside.

September 15, 2010

Today I made plans and started getting stuff done. And I ate one of the most delicious cups of soup ever.

September 14, 2010

I like this daily ritual.

September 12, 2010

Perfect weather for the Bonneyville Mill celebration.

September 11, 2010

Watching the last nerve-racking minutes of the game was the climax of an otherwise quiet and rainy day.

September 10, 2010

Diner. Bakery. Amish produce stand. Nursery. Blue skies. Fields of corn.
My heart does belong to the Midwest.

September 9, 2010

I learned a valuable lesson that I’m sure I’ve learned before. Don’t start making plans when they depend on something that isn’t a guarantee. It’s dangerous.

September 8, 2010

Dentist appointment. Standing in line at the BMV.
The best black bean burger ever.
Sorting through boxes and boxes of my belongings.
A swing, the sun, a stack of magazines, and an iced chai latte.

I guess it was a balanced day.

September 7, 2010

I hope I’m getting better at interviewing. I know I’m getting worse at saying goodbye.

September 6, 2010

Thank you Ann Arbor—for being beautiful, green, and full of parks to play in.

September 5, 2010

A lazy Sunday afternoon and a night spent with friends.

September 4, 2010

I didn’t make it into the stadium for the game, but at least I got to be there for the celebration that followed.
