The Seven Year Itch

When I left Australia 7 years ago, to say I was devastated was an understatement.  I’m not a crier, but I publicly sobbed like a child on the way to the airport after saying goodbye to the people who had become like family to me during my short stint living there. The whole flight back … More The Seven Year Itch

80 at Heart

It is not a secret that I’m 30 going on 80. With my list of pet peeves growing longer by the day, I find I have to sit on my mouth more often than not. I’m exhausted by Friday, and usually in my pj’s, makeup off, watching a trashy tv show by 6pm so I … More 80 at Heart

Cake Teeth

I woke up the morning after my 30th birthday, sipping a cup of coffee as I stared into my empty fridge hoping something would magically appear.  I’d been spread pretty thin for the previous 15 days and had nothing of nutritional value left to eat. Luckily for me, I was given a chocolate birthday cake … More Cake Teeth
