One Fine Day

9 notes

Some shots from the long weekend.
Marc Maron standup on Friday was hilarious. My cheeks burned from laughing.
Saturday night I spent hours with my girls as we said goodbye to Melati. Girl time = heaven.
I survived 8 miles on Sunday. Tar Heel Ten Miler is next Saturday! Then we went to the arboretum and I had the best nap ever in the warm sun.

Solid weekend. Also, my bday is this Friday. 29!

4+ years

Because this has been just as much my journey as it’s been his, I feel compelled to share with you all that today is my husband’s last day of dental school.

*4 years of dental school

*2 years of post-bac science classes before that

*classes in NYC, Greensboro, Asheville, a lab at UNC

*Me by his side the whole time.

This is so stinking surreal. And wonderful.

I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.

Legitimate Question on Baby Names

Why is it that people use traditional boy names for girls seemingly constantly, but they would NEVER use a traditional girl name for a boy?

This really bothers me.

I even googled it to see if I could find any examples of a feminine name that has been popularized as a boys name. GOOGLE WAS CONFUSED:

Because, obviously, nobody would ever name their baby boy something feminine, so I must be confused.

Some of my favorite shots from Carly Anne’s bachelorette weekend in Miami.

***I am addicted to cortaditos and the guava and cheese pastry from Versailles; the Clevelander rooftop bar is still my favorite place on SoBe; it is a really good idea to stay in a condo on the beach***

In other news, I’m freezing cold again.

TBT: This is my favorite picture of me and my little brother as kids. I remember this picture being taken. We made a fort out of all the pillows in the house right after this :)
