I recently started taking voice lessons again. I missed singing on a regular basis, and wanted to bring some creativity back into my life.

Why I’m learning to fall in love with myself

August 21, 2014

I was looking in the mirror, staring into my eyes. I love myself, I said quietly. I tried it again. I love myself. One more time. I love myself. Ugh. It wasn’t working. I felt ridiculous. Like what I was saying wasn’t true. I was trying out a new experiment, and so far it wasn’t […]

Last week I sat down to write this blog post. Then I remembered I was hungry, so got up to get a snack. Then I decided it was more important to organize my closet. Then I realized I wanted to watch that reality TV show, just a quick one. Then I got tired and figured […]

The time a mountain bike was my greatest teacher

June 26, 2014

Last year Jeff and I completed our first triathlon. We participated with an awesome organization called Team in Training, while raising money for cancer research. In return they provided extensive training, coaching and community, which was essential for us newbies. Triathlons–as the name suggests–involve three different sports, and are extremely gear heavy. Between the swimming, […]

June 12, 2014

A few years ago while living in New York, I decided to move to Argentina. I had always wanted to live abroad, and I felt very strongly that it was the right time. Moving to a foreign country meant a lot of changes needed to take place—quitting my job, subletting my apartment, figuring out what […]
