Let’s laugh and play. Let’s imagine and create. Let’s invite and celebrate. Let’s explore and risk. This is a place to connect and ask big questions.

I asked him to say something, to which he rattled off a series of Chinese phrases. At least, that is my assumption. Now that I think of it, he could have speaking gibberish. If that was the case… 1) He… Read More
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine relayed a frustrating conversation back to me. In brief, an acquaintance had nagged her into divulging relationship history she wasn’t ready to share and, afterward, wrapped up with an impressive collection of clichés: When you stop looking for a relationship, the right guy will magically come into your life! I met my husband once I became content in my singleness. Maybe this is a season to focus on your… Read More
Hey friends! I wrote this post originally for the popular dating app, Coffee Meets Bagel. I liked it so much that I decided to post it here as well.
