About a month ago, my friend Dominique had an informal housewarming party.  She had just moved into a great new house with her boyfriend and we were all christening the backyard patio area... read on

    In case you were interested in some burning man pics, one of the friends I went with has posted some pics of our trip on her blog www.taryncoxthewife.com One of my personal favorites is the picture she took of a wedding dress hanging in the temple which had I Vow to Love Myself First... read on

  • A Time to Choose: NY With My Sister Or LA With My Man

    Mr. Dreamboat asked me to move in with him Saturday.  I wish I could say this is a column about the timing of moving in with someone and if it’s necessary before marriage but I’m going to save that for later this week.  It feels dishonest of me to let you think my relationship is... read on

  • Do’s and Don’ts When Visiting Your Boyfriend’s Parents

    Last weekend, I stayed at my boyfriend’s parents house when we were in town for a wedding. It was the second time in our brief courtship that I’ve done so and so I was much less stressed about it this time but it’s still a pressure filled situation. The part that makes it so... read on

    I used to believe in soul mates as much as I believe in the New Yorker – which is to say a lot.  Not just when I was little but I remember talking to my mom about it not long after I graduated from college and defending the idea that it was fated in the stars that there is only one... read on

    I recently returned from the Burning Man Festival in Black Rock City, Nevada (actually I’ve been back over a week but it’s taken that long to remove the dust from my body).  It’s an art festival in the middle of the desert and I went for the first time as part of my month long... read on

    An entry from my sister while I’m away at the Burning Man Festival.

    If someone were to ask me my strengths as a person, probably as my first offering, I would say that I am honest. And then I might backtrack immediately afterwards, saying that being honest may also be one of my... read on
