Hey, y’all. i’m Kristin. I live in Atlanta, where I have a full-time job in advertising and a part-time obsession with figuring out what I really want to do when I grow up. I'm always adding to my extensive collection of unfinished writings, to-do lists and crossword puzzles. I’m a book club failure and can’t follow a recipe to save my life. I hate running, but i try to do it anyway. because, well, fat. If there were more hours in the day, I would sleep more, write more, explore more . . . and probably run more. My life usually feels epically chaotic, but I'd honestly be bored to death if it wasn’t. (And there’s always a Chardonnay in the fridge if things get to be just too much!) When can find the time, I write about it all.

okay, so i’m a total 80s nerd and had to read this partly just because it’s Molly Ringwald for god’s sake! but it was actually amazing. a series of stories with intertwined characters, with the central theme of betrayal. really beautifully written and amazing characters with compelling stories from page 1. can’t wait ’til she […]


just (not) read: Gold

maybe it was the difference between reading a real book instead of a (fabulously) tawdry scandal that writes itself, but i just could not force my brain to get into this one. i had been so excited after Little Bee, but just did not fall in love with the characters instantly in this one like […]



received this fortune at lunch today and found it really special—not only because i haven’t had Chinese food in sooooo long—but because i found it fascinating that the message wasn’t about something i  could look forward to. it was about how i could improve the life of someone else, which after getting over the whole […]
