The Story Of The Ring — Where My Rock Came From

Posted by Sunday, November 20, 2016 4 2

Ever since I was in middle school I knew what kind of engagement ring I wanted. It had to be a princess cut diamond with a white gold band. And, obviously, my ring would have to come from Tiffany's. Because what girl doesn't want that blue box -- am I right? Anything else just wouldn't do. It just ...

Getting Back The Gilmores — One Week Till The ‘Real’ Ending

Posted by Friday, November 18, 2016 1 0

In exactly one week Gilmore Girls will return to the small screen, this time on Netflix. The revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, is something that us fast-talking, coffee-swilling fans have been hoping and dreaming for ever since the show went off the air almost 10 years ago. And I couldn't be more anxious about the ...

I Won’t Be Home For Christmas

Posted by Thursday, November 17, 2016 0 0

Next week is Thanksgiving, the official start to the holiday season (in my book, not Starbucks'). And I know one thing I am thankful for: my career. I'm very fortunate to have a job that I love at my age. I've worked really hard to get to where I am and I'm very happy to ...

Slow Your Roll — It’s Not Christmas Yet

Posted by Saturday, November 12, 2016 0 1

When I was a little kid we used to go to pumpkin patches and harvest festivals in the Fall where they had free apple cider and homemade kettle corn. They had games and hayrides and, if you were really lucky, a freakin' pony. Nothing was better than walking away from that patch carrying the perfect ...

Veterans Day: My Hero

Posted by Friday, November 11, 2016 0 1

Veterans Day is always a hard day for me because, in my eyes, the world lost its bravest veteran five and half years ago when my hero died. My grandfather, Bertram Maas, was an amazing man who served his country proudly from the time he entered the Naval Academy at 18, to the years he ...

When You’re Apart, But Not Alone

Posted by Thursday, November 10, 2016 4 2

As I lie here on a blanket on the ground writing this post, I've got my headphones in and I'm listening to an episode of Charmed on Netflix that I've seen a thousand times, and Ethan is lounging on the couch behind me playing a video game on his PlayStation 4. We haven't spoken in ...
