In Which I Return

It’s been four years since I shut down my old blog from college—shut it down because my life consisted of (a) playing French nanny to a four-year-old and (b) sitting on my fiancé’s couch addressing wedding invitations, and neither of these things do a lively blog make. But since that time I have done the following:

  1. Married the fiancé
  2. Burned a few dinners
  3. Landed a job in which I was never called on to produce the names of dinosaurs in French
  4. Quit the job
  5. Snagged another job—this one far away from home, and …  
  6. Blazed a whole new Oregon Trail

We’ve been here a few months and it’s starting to feel like home. We’ve found the best trails to hike, the coziest coffee shop, the grocery store with the most dependable produce, and the best waffles in creation. And now that those big priorities are taken care of, I have a little more time to indulge in telling the whole world what I think about, oh, everything.

So here’s my new forum for musing about literature, science (the portion of it that’s accessible to English majors), current affairs, and my quest to find the perfect pastry dough. Welcome. 


  1. I fully expect pictures of said coziest coffee shop.

  2. Like! Like like like like like. LIKE.

  3. I am so glad you started again. It's been too long Friend!
