To Frank.

I usually talk fashion on Wednesdays, but my camera has just died, so instead I'll post about a man named Frank. Frank lives on the sidewalk by my office building. He usually lives in boxes and under trash bags, and I know this and occasionally pass him on my way to and from work. Today... Continue Reading →

Gluten Free Conundrums

There's a slightly-obscure Catholic New Years tradition where we are randomly assigned a saint to study/ emulate in the new year. I've received saints to study over the past few years at my New Years retreat, which is all fun and smiles. Last year (2012) my saint was St. Elmo. I had never heard of... Continue Reading →

What HE Wore Wednesday–John

I'm thinking about making one for an upcoming dance. Here's the thing: I've been very hesitant in the past. Why? Because I was homeschooled. There's a prejudice, I know,... Continue Reading →

What SHE Wore Wednesday–Jessica

Jessica walked into my office today and it was like seeing a vision of a vintage Barbie. I, on the other hand, was dressed like a three-year-old with no concept of weather-appropriate clothing because when I ran this morning it was raining and so I wore rainboots to work. That doesn't sound that bad, except... Continue Reading →
