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 that box of wine in the fridge if things get to be just too much!) when i can find the time, i write about it all.

bye-bye, sweet friend

so sad to report that yesterday, we had to put down our beloved Maury, matriarch of our household wild kingdom and the dog i often called second mommy because of how she watched after Miss Girl like her own little pup. she was 15 (that’s 105 to you and me) and her body just finally […]

prefacing this one by saying that Spy is in Italy. Italy!!! for a week!! Miss Girl and i are holding down the fort here with terrible twos officially kicked in (right on schedule, as my perfect daughter would ensure). so. this is the first night ever in 2 years and who knows how many nights […]
