The last weekend in my 20s has come to an end.
It started with Friday and the best night of 2014 — the party I went to was amaaaazing. Josh had an absolute blast too! I love my friends and good drinks and a dance floor. Seriously. What an event! Being an adult rocks. Prom was definitely not that much fun… !
And then the weekend ended with a Sunday evening walk along the river & a gorgeous sunset.
In between was a hungover day at work (to make up for my 3 day weekend next weekend!) and a CrossFit girls pool party. Seeing those ladies is always lovely.
A pretty solid last weekend in my 20s, I would say.
Now I am getting ready to face Monday - and by Friday I’ll be in NYC, excited to kick off a new decade of life.
Ready for my first big fancy paid-to-be-there-not-working-it party! Gold & Glam is the theme… Ready to celebrate those Pittsburgh Rivers! Party at the Pier time!

Am I something?
And the answer comes:
You already are.
You always were.
And you still have time to be."
I got an absolutely WONDERFUL package today from Miss Marisol! It definitely put an extra pep in my step for this Wednesday. Thanks, lady!
Sweet potato, coconut, and walnuts team up in this delightful loaf that’s perfect with a cup of tea.
Maybe some of you will read this.
Maybe you won’t.
But it is the last letter/response in the book “tiny beautiful things: advice on love and life from Dear Sugar” by Cheryl Strayed.
It is a collection of some previously published ( & some new) advice columns from Cheryl, who used to publish them under the column’s name of Sugar.
Sugar’s writing is beautiful and honest and true and a total and complete joy to read. It is also painfully heartbreaking at times - in a way we all need our hearts to be broken.
In the letters people sent her - and in her responses - I often found myself.
It was a book a coworker gave me and insisted I read. I was hesitant because I often don’t care for “advice” columns. But this felt different —- it felt more open and real.
I loved every page.
The last letter was from a fan - who asked Sugar what her 40s something self would say to her 20s something self.
The above are photos of the response.
I am so very sad the book is over - but cannot wait to pass it along to the next friend.
