i don’t know if it’s that i spoke to my grandma on the phone the other day and, while she is getting better, she still sounds so old and tired and far away, or that my father is still awaiting his biopsy results, or that i am turning 27 (TWENTY SEVEN) on friday, but i feel all sorts of wobbly lately, like a table with uneven legs. and i don’t know what to do about it. you can’t slip a folded napkin under the shortest leg to straighten me out. i think i just have to let myself wobble.


  • 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.
