Turns out it takes a monthish to write a blog when you are depressed.


This isn't the first time I've gone through a few months of feelings that feel bigger than I can manage. But I am growing, because I figured out that for me, I can decide that no one gets to steal... Continue Reading →

Single Challenge


You may have seen these Facebook "challenges" circulating - people 'daring' each other to celebrate their spouses or their children, then tag other people. It's a subtle way to validate what most people are already doing; posting really cute pictures and adorable... Continue Reading →

RinR: This Week’s Dream


Highlights of the week: One last beach night with the loves. It's been record low temperatures here in Rio - like high 50s F, which makes us FREAK OUT. I legitimately don't have enough clothes for this situation. But we... Continue Reading →

RinR: highlights and hijackings


Oh man. This week. Highlights include: Rick Rolling Leana at her last chapel - I called her up on the mic, asking staff to come so we could maybe lay a hand on her and pray for her new journey,... Continue Reading →

RinR: assessing and accepting the unavoidable


eeeeep. It's coming. My birthday. 32. Thirty TWO. Like, really thirty, now. No going back. I never accidentally say an age starting with twenty anymore. Actually, these days, when asked how old I am, I usually first say "how old... Continue Reading →

RinR: And for my 600th blog post, I try to adult.


I'm trying to pack for Peru. But if you've ever traveled with me, you know my packing is like a ten hour mess, no matter what. I start by getting distracted by making a playlist for my iPod, end up... Continue Reading →

RinR: Living the Dream and Waiting for my Meet-Cute


As a birthday treat for Leana, we spent this past weekend (thanks to her parents, a friend, and the manager!) at the JW Marriot on Copacabana beach. As she’s leaving me AGAIN this year (she left our old teaching job... Continue Reading →

RinR: Lent and Life and Thoughts and Things


Two weeks into Lent and so far, mostly good on the no wine/fries/chocolate thing. I believe in the Lent where you get one day off a week (if you want) because there are technically 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter,... Continue Reading →

RinR: Annual Valentine’s Day Post


Nothing like a public diary (blog) to help you see the ways you've (hopefully, but not always) grown and matured, and to observe the running themes in your life. On big days, or days that seem big, I like to... Continue Reading →
