I am trying to find a balance between work and play, between here and there, between the way things are and the way I want them to be.

I am trying not to give myself unrealistic expectations, but at the same time I am trying to push myself to do/give/be more.

I am trying to remember that, often times, less is more.

I am trying to take better care of my body by eating healthfully and exercising regularly. I am trying to convince myself that going to the gym at lunch today is a better choice than grabbing a burrito and a coke.

I am trying to be a good daughter, a good girlfriend, a good friend. I am trying to be a good me.


  • 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.
