Tears, Tequila, and The One That Got Away

Last night, one of my soul sisters came over. She came to borrow a dress for an upcoming trip to Miami but it turned into talking shit over wine and then crying into tequila shots while dancing to Beyoncé in […]

Flight Nanny

This rotation made it all worth it! The hustle, the struggle, the point of almost giving up.  I flew a fantastic family. I flew a rapper with a temper and a history of drive-by shooting. Both were incredibly different experiences […]

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

I’m currently lying in bed at a Hyatt hotel in Cabo San Lucas reflecting on not just this year but this particular day through the years. Also, Nick Jonas is performing on MTV right now. The real St. Nick. Let’s […]

Dear Universe, Today I am grateful for…

Perhaps it was the Oktoberfest beer at the bar during my layover in Houston. Or maybe it’s the Eddy’s grapefruit vodka and soda I’m sipping on thanks to my pilot handing me a drink coupon last night at the bar […]

Glow Up, Rach

It’s not often that I have a hard time putting my thoughts and feelings on paper or in this case on a screen, however, here I am, having difficulty articulating exactly how I feel in this moment. Is it possible […]

33, 34

As I’m enjoying my morning coffee and catching up on Awkward, I’m reflecting on how incredible 33 was and how I’ve never felt more loved at 34. At 33, I was coming out of a toxic relationship and ready to […]

When I grow up…

I’m 33. I guess I am grown up. I work, pay taxes and rent, go to happy hour. I’m grown. But I’m not living my best life. Not the life I had envisioned for myself when I was a youngster […]

Rachel 2.0

Or is this the same Rachel I’ve always been and just peeling away the layers, smoothing the callouses from my heart that have made me so cynical and jaded? It’s been 26 days since I got home from Peru. It’s […]

The Art of Rejection

I was rejected recently. Twice. I know, I can’t believe it either. The first rejection actually came from a good, no great, friend of mine. He and I have been close for the last six years. Sometimes behaving like more […]

My 2nd favorite word…

VACATION What a fun word! Something to plan for. Something to be excited about. The anticipation oftentimes leads to a restless and sleepless night before the departure day. But how do you feel when you’re coming home? Do you make […]

Since you’ve been gone…

I woke up this morning to a text from my ex. ‘Have you been with anyone else?’ WHAT FUCKING BUSINESS IS IT OF YOURS?! But no, I haven’t. That’s right. The queen of ‘The best way to get over one […]

Lena Dunham…here ya go.

Lena Dunham wished she had an abortion. Well, I had one. Three and a half weeks ago. I knew something was up. You could plan your calendar around my period. It lasted three days and came back every 28. This […]

The Art of Aging

I have a Little Bird. A Step-Monster that has evolved into a Step-Goddess. I have a 19-year old kid. No, she’s not my biological daughter and I am no longer with her father but we have maintained a beautiful parent/kid […]

I think I hate my boyfriend.

Lazy. Narcissistic. I think that’s the best way to describe him. And he’s currently mad at me because I was mad at him…yesterday. I wish I was kidding. Yes, I was mad at him yesterday because I came back to […]

Corner of Anxious and WTF Am I Doing?

I had a moment of weakness. I texted him. Against all of my better judgement and my friend’s advice, I reached out. ‘Hi.’ I’d spent the better part of the day watching Sex and the City and drinking sparkling Rosé. […]

Heartbreak Hotel

I did it. I let my wall down. I allowed my heart to be vulnerable. I threw all common sense out the window. I fell for a guy. I loved someone that was not a family member, nor a friend […]

Cloud Nine

I’m in a new relationship. Long distance. It sucks. The distance, not the relationship. Do you know how hard it is to find something to talk about on the phone everyday but still want to hear your boyfriend’s voice? It […]

Seat 23C

Perhaps it’s the lack of oxygen on airplanes that makes me feel extra emotional when I travel. I’m Maui bound to see The Boyfriend. (Oh, that’s fun to say! BOYFRIEND.) I’m beyond thrilled and ecstatic to see him. There’s only […]

Where the hell am I?

Currently, I’m sitting in a coffee shop listening to Rihanna’s new album and a woman bitch about her latte being ‘too wet’. What. The. Fuck. (I really think someone should start keeping count of how often I say fuck throughout […]

Travel day

There is nothing I truly love more than traveling. The spark, the excitement that leads to departure day especially picking out the perfect outfit. My mom used to say, “You’ll never get bumped to first class if you don’t look […]

Salvation Mountain

Still Friday July 31st. I throw a peace sign up to my new friends at Ski Inn and head toward the exit. Stepping outside, I’m instantly overcome with heat and flies. I race the few steps to my car, start […]
