New Yorker, Southerner,
and California girl all in one.
I am a lover of beautiful things.
I like sunshine,
long vintage dresses,
short leather skirts,
very high heels,
and cowboy boots.
I like surprises.
I have an affinity for beards,
blackberries, and cupcakes.
I'm vertically gifted
and mathematically challenged.
I believe the best parts of life are the parts we create; a new dress, a good meal, picnics in the park, friends, love, and everything in between.
I'm perfectly happy being grumpy some of the time.
“Spending so many years alone and observant made me learn how to make a relationship work by watching everyone else fuck up theirs. The key is to just be nice to each other, and not be snarky. You want me to get up and get you a glass of water? Of course, my love. You need my help getting through grad school? I’ll do all that I can for you. People don’t need to snap at each other, and sacrifice should go both ways when needed. Love is too important a gift to waste. And that is what I saw… that’s what I learned.”
My friend Cory, to me, when I asked him what he felt he had benefitted most from his five years of celibacy.
