Blogger Diary: The Wisdom Of Insecurity

I did something last week that I rarely do.  I took a vacation — a whole week off, with no plans.  Well, the only plans were to drive to my beach house, where I would spend the week relaxing, taking long beach strolls, reading, writing, and just being.  Life is funny…it always has other plans.

Blogger Diary: A Weekend Away

When you live in a city, you are constantly surrounded by things; people, buildings, noises… it never seems to stop. Sometimes it’s nice to leave it all behind and get away. The feeling of open space and looking out at landscape that goes on for miles is something that truly inspires me.

Blogger Diary: The Relaxation Room

We’ve all imagined our dream home. Maybe yours is a bright, spacious home with overgrown gardens and little stone pathways.

Blogger Diary: 4th Of July Weekend

In the summertime when the heat sizzles on the city streets, I escape to the water.  I feel so lucky to have a home away from home at the beach.  It has always been my go-to place on summer weekends, or any time I’m feeling stressed, emotional, or too wrapped up in the minute details of day to day life. It’s funny how when you take a step back, certain things become clear.  Read More

Blogger Diary: A Glimpse Inside My Home

Last summer I wrote a blogger diary called Home is a Feeling, Not a Place. At that time, I had only been in Philly for 3 months, and didn’t yet feel settled. My mind was all over the place, and I was really craving that feeling of “home” to comfort me. It’s now a year later, and I can truly say that Philly feels like home. Read More
