Bringing my manners back. →
I’ve been put out with myself recently over how much I check my phone when I’m out with friends. Even sitting at the table with them while they’re telling a story, I’m flipping through some app or text message or email. This article confirms my concern. I don’t know when I began to think that behavior was okay. Maybe it was when most of my friends became just as...

I had an amazing birthday today.
I have fantastic friends and family that made today ridiculously special: lots of notes and phone calls, a picnic in the park with my KC faves (complete with a sweet rainbow pirate ship kite), and dinner with my best friend from home who just happens to be in town (complete with 11 layer cake). I’m a lucky girl and couldn’t have asked for a better birthday weekend. 29, you’re...

I can’t begin to name all of the friends I’ve made and experiences I’ve had thanks to my interactions here, but I’m grateful for all of them.
