and then there were three

May 13, 2009

Today is our 3rd anniversary. I am so grateful to spend my days and nights, ride the ups and downs, and share a history and future with my favorite person in the whole wide world. Happy Anniversary, Rama. I’m so excited to spend the next year together–and meet the third member of our family!

Has it really been almost a month since we last spoke? I ate, laughed, celebrated and lounged with family in town, and then I hid in my apartment recovering from their wonderful visit, and then I dove head first into some pressing client work, and now, well, now I finally feel like I can breathe […]


merry little moments

December 16, 2008

There are tiny bits o’ Christmas in our itty bitty apartment. No tree, though, since we need to save room for an air mattress. Everyone’s coming for Christmas, and I am scrambling to get everything ready. Between finishing up work, tidying our place and wrapping up loose ends, I am finding joy in merry little […]

Looking down and up, as I wait for friends at Brand Park As things start to get rushed and I start to get frazzled this season, I am trying to remember that I can press pause any time. Yesterday, I sat in an empty park and spent 5 minutes watching the world around me. It […]


holiday gift guide 2008: good things by good people

November 28, 2008

This year, I am shamelessly promoting the people I know (and like) and the amazing work they do (and sell). If you’re going to shop anyway, why not support: Andrea / Superhero Designs She makes candy-colored necklaces that I’m convinced give you superpowers. Christine / Christine Mason Miller She just self-published a sparkling book that […]


a grateful heart

November 27, 2008

For riding along this journey with me. For sitting front row and not throwing tomatoes. For humoring my bad jokes and weathering my dry spells. For adding color and light to my life. For everything, thank you. I am grateful for your friendship, support and warmth.


33 things

November 25, 2008

I am 33 now. If you’d asked me a week ago how I felt about turning 33, I would have winced and bored you to tears about how old it sounds, how I had wished I’d accomplished so much more by now, how I’m not really looking forward to being the age my mother was when […]


write on!

November 20, 2008

Lynda Barry’s train of thought, written on index cards [more photos soon] This week, I did something I hadn’t done in years. I took a writing class. For my upcoming birthday, Rama enrolled me in Writing the Unthinkable taught by one of my heroes, Lynda Barry. I just got home an hour ago, and I […]


and more

November 17, 2008

Martha was just the tip of the iceberg. The week just got better and better and better. Enjoying Jonatha and Glen Phillips live at Largo. Getting crafty alongside Swirly & Stacy at a holiday event. Seeing the amazing art work of my pal Wendy. Celebrating the wedding of two dear friends. Walking the colorful art-filled […]


the day i met martha stewart

November 11, 2008

When I found out Martha Stewart was signing her new book at the Barnes & Noble down the street, I knew I had to go. My mom and dad are even bigger fans (they watch her show every day), so I invited them to come along. We got to the store 45 minutes early, thinking […]


  • 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.
