10 Years as an iPhone User

It’s hard to believe that over 10 years ago, I waited in line outside my local AT&T store to get my hands on one of the first iPhones on the day Apple released them. For me, deciding to buy the iPhone was easy. I had been lamenting about carrying around my phone, Palm Pilot, and […] Read more…

The Etiquette of Flowers

I recently had a friend receive 2 dozen red roses from a work colleague, just for “thinking of her.” I don’t think he meant it as a romantic gesture, which means he clearly has no idea what kind of flowers are appropriate for his particular situation. I’m going to break down my thoughts on this […] Read more…

Spring is in the Air – Camping Time

I absolutely love camping, and as soon as the weather turns enjoyable, it’s one of the first things I think about. Now, I’m not a hardcore camper.

I love Madwell. I don’t remember exactly when their catalog first showed up at my apartment, but as soon as I ordered my first jeans from them, I was instantly hooked. They have a great, effortlessly cool style that’s backed by some high-quality, great fitting products. Don’t even get me started on how amazing their […] Read more…

Cadbury Egg Sketch by Jennifer Coyle

A Cadbury Egg Comparision

The absolutely adorable Cadbury Egg sketch was created by my very talented, good friend Jennifer Coyle over at Hello Brio Studio. I love Cadbury Creme Eggs. The originals, not any of those different variations. Last year, when I was in Birmingham, UK, I had the opportunity of visiting the Cadbury Factory and getting my hands […] Read more…

Maintaining My Blog

I used this blog a ton while I was traveling, but afterwards, it’s almost like I pretend it doesn’t exist. I don’t think I want to let that happen. I don’t want to write for anyone in particular, but I would like to keep it up. There are a few reasons I can think of […] Read more…
