Gimme a Break

So some days I cook. A lot of days I cook. I enjoy it, the methodical, creative, quiet aspect of it, and I like how I can control the outcome, for the most part. Being an actor, I don’t get to have a ton of control on how things are going to pan out in…

Hot Mess Mom

Happy New Year! Yep, I’m late in saying that again! The holidays came and went and now here I am in the upside-down, the limbo time where work has not yet begun and my days are blending in to each other so I say things like, “man, TGIF, amiright?” on Tuesday afternoons. I’m still finding…

Jetlag-Happy

I don’t know how it’s been three months since I’ve gotten a chance to sit and update this here blog. I blame copious amounts of travel and jet lag and time zone changes (Philly! Indiana! Vegas! Newfoundland! New Zealand! Back to Vegas! Montreal!). In my off days I also chase a rather spirited toddler and…
