Once every few months, you probably have one of those days where you just stop and think, My god, that was a really good day.
Maybe your friend surprised you with a late birthday present, or you got to go to the happiest place on Earth with friends, or maybe you ran 10 miles and then proceeded to stuff your face with 40 vendors’ worth of breakfast food samples, a giant chocolate-and-sprinkle dipped cookie dough ice cream cone with more sprinkles on top, and freakin’ bomb Chinese food.… Read more
Congrats to Kathlene and Ivy for winning two AWESOME personalized care packages in last week’s giveaway! I can’t wait to create an epic assortment of goodies for you both!
I really dislike chocolate cupcakes.
Wait, say what?
It’s funny how we all define the good things in life so differently. Back when kids used to bring boxes of assorted cupcakes to celebrate their birthday, I loved to ogle (okay, creepy) and watch each student make the all-important decision of which type of cupcake to take–chocolate with vanilla frosting?
For those of you who have been following my recent “adventures” (or lack thereof), you’ll know that I’ve been dabbling in the cool–and more than a little creepy–world of marketing.
The first thing I learned was to frontload important things. For example: I’m considering making a Facebook page for my blog and need your feedback!

It feels a little bit like you’re sinking, a little bit like you’re falling, and a little bit like somebody’s tied you up by the extremities and thrown you into the water, all at the same time.
This isn’t an angry post, or a vengeful post, or a gossip-y post. This post is just a little…disappointed.
It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this way about anything. The last time was in eighth grade when a guy I’d wanted to get in touch with because we used to be good friends hung up on me when I told him who was calling.… Read more
Ever feel like you’re being pulled apart by the seams from all the stress?
You know…the stress that always seems to converge on the very spot on which you happen to be standing at any given moment? That stress?
I feel that way all the time. Fortunately, this bread does, too. And I always say that there’s nothing better than food that understands exactly what you’re going through.
With the minutes ticking down to the first day of the school term, I can already feel the jitters creeping up all around me, as if someone’s broken into a museum of entomology and set loose all the live specimens.… Read more
