Notes to self

January 1, 2002

don’t forget where you came from, girl. don’t forget God and the girls who know you inside-and-out (and love you anyway) and your family who would do anything for you. don’t forget the plans you once wrote in the stars, of who you want to be and what you want to do and where you want to go. don’t forget to give, because you get so much as it is and you continue to take when you can. don’t forget to smile big and speak loudly and feel honestly. don’t forget to forgive and understand and trust. have faith. be loving. go far. you can and will reach amazing heights if you keep true to yourself, and you know who that is. you have been getting to know yourself since you were a little girl. you have been stepping into your dancing shoes ready to twirl around this crazy world.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
