Since this blog was born in 2010, there are many cool things I am proud of.
Here are my most favorite endeavors as a writer/ blogger besides getting to talk to you amazing people every week.

I am really excited that my writing is being featured in other outlets as well.
- In December of 2014, one of my essay’s, That Beach, was picked up by Mamalode. You can read the piece here.
- My piece, To My Daughter: I Was 14 Once, Too was syndicated on the website Scary Mommy in May 2015. You can read this piece here.
- In September of 2015, I was featured on this website as one of the 50 Most Delicious Food Blogs in Chicago. On a side note: I am not really a food blogger but I was still pretty stoked. Then I saw that I was on the same list as Steve YOU SO NERDY YOU COOL Dolinsky (the food critic at Channel 7) and I was all AWW SNAP, I HAVE ARRIVED. But seriously, I am not a food blogger.
- For the past three years, I have been writing on behalf of Netflix as a part of their Stream Team. I personally love this partnership because it combines my love of Netflix and blogging. Head here to read my Stream Team posts.
