Well hello!

Today, on a rainy Chicago morning, I met some really lovely ladies for biking and brunch, all of whom have blogs. and after I came home and planted my herb garden, I decided to sit down and make something of myself. Here. In the blog world. My dear friend Emily, who is currently in Korea teaching and living and blogging, has always told me I should start a blog, and that she would read it. So Goddess Em, this one's for you. And if I can figure out how to use this thing, I'll put up a link to your fantastic blog TeachTravelPlay and talk about how much I dig it.

And now it seems fitting to talk about one of my most favorite goddesses as my first post. Maybe I'll start a theme and have Goddess of The Week*! That sounds fun. And very structured, another thing I like, along with ginger tea and red wine. Hoo boy, let the fun begin!

* Goddess of April 25th 2010: Emily. is. among many things, a vibrant ray of light. She runs and cooks and runs after neighborhood kids, and knows more about flowers and Italy then I ever will, and she is really good at getting people to volunteer. She has also eaten live Octopus and is still my friend after I burned the birthday cake she made for me. She loves doing wild and crazy things, has an affinity for greek yogurt, and the some damn gorgeous dimples. What a cool one.


  1. And Emily knows a lot about Korea and is not afraid to travel anywhere. Here's a tip of the glass to Goddess Emily!

  2. I'm impressed that you got this up and running so quickly! Especially after allowing time to drink tea while your hands and feet defrosted.

    I had so much fun riding with you today and still can't get over how cute your felt earrings are. See you soon :)

  3. Ari!!! Now we can follow your blog too! Does this mean you will take photos of us when you come visit and post them? Have a great day!

  4. The last post was from Joanne and Valor!
