Back in the US!
Not a whole lot to say lately, but here’s a little bit. Continue reading

Yesterday Part 3: parents!
I finally make it back to Evelyn’s…not the most sober person ever. And guess who’s in town and wants to come by…parents! Chelsea took a photo to commemorate. Shortly after, she did her own photo piece expressing her thoughts on my action-packed day. Meanwhile, here’s Evelyn wearing the top we got her at Marshalls, on … Continue reading

Everything I own is in this Chrysler
My paring-down process really started a year ago. After more consignment, craigslist, ebay and giving more stuff away than I would have EVER thought necessary, all my belongings have finally been whittled down to: And packed with near-jigsaw puzzle precision into my one-way rental: Now off to Austin (by way of Nashville, then Dallas.)
Drive to Austin. Fly to LGA. Fly to HKG.
The plan in 7 easy steps: 1. Leave Columbus. Everything I own in the rental car. 2. Stop near Nashville to see Dave Ramsey. 3. Spend the night at Highland Place B&B in Jackson, TN. 4. Drive to Dallas to see my dear friend, Robin. 5. Drive to Austin. Put stuff in storage. Visit my … Continue reading
