A Contradiction of Style

Do you ever have one of those moments when everything gets clear, just clicks in an instant? That happened to me last week. It hit me: style-wise, I am a contradiction. What I think I want and what I actually want aren’t the same…and it’s totally fine. First, a little back story. In 2003 I decided […]

Tory

I have been meaning to start a blog for years. SO when I went to the recent Tory Burch opening and had my photo taken on the premise that I had a blog, I decided it was time to pull the trigger. Tory Burch is to me what Peyton Manning is to my husband. I […]

Nine years back on my 4 year wedding anniversary my husband toasted to the best 4 years of his life.I love my husband, but I had to hesitate.  I went to Ohio University.  I think it would be illegal to have more fun than you do at Ohio University. Yes, part of this is because […]

Good News/Bad News

My Ohio U. Bobcats lost a heartbreaker last night in overtime to North Carolina and I’m still bummed about it. I was all prepared to drive to Athens, Ohio for the post-game party (never mind that it’s 6 hours away; the key to being the nation’s number one party school is not letting logic interfere […]
