There are no new words to communicate how quickly this holiday season came upon us. There are even fewer words to relay how unprepared I am for the coming days of packing, travel and stretchy pants. And the internet knows far more than me about how to put your best bird forward, so I’ll spare you my attempt. Instead, as has become habit of late, I’ll keep things on the short side (I’m actually working on a new pigtales piece that will exhaust whatever vocabulary I leave on the table in this post) and just drop this most colorful salad into … Read More

Holy freaking (American) Thanksgiving is in two weeks. I say that like I’m telling you something, I realize. Like you don’t know that for yourself. But that’s only because things like calendar events tend to get away from me, so I need subtle reminders — like Target swapping bins of Reese’s ghosts for motorized Lazy Susans topped with shiny plastic trees — to shake me out of my “it’s squash season but let’s pretend it’s still summer” daydream.
