All Things Summer

Today at Better In Real Life it is all things summer. In a little bit I’ll be talking cheap summer fashion. CHEAP SUMMER FASHION! I want to sing it to the mountain tops it excites me so much.

Bit first! I am guest blogging over at A Safe Mooring. Kirsty is my UK doppelganger. She says all the things that we think, but never say out loud. And hell yes to that. Kirsty is on vacation in San Francisco this week! Which means hopefully I’ll see her soon. She asked a bunch of us, while she was away, to write about summer, and I did. This is draft 3. I had a really hard time writing about summer, but I am grateful to Kirsty for making me try because otherwise I probably would never have, and therefore we would not be having this awesome day ‘o summer over here.

So go check out Kirsty and A Safe Mooring! She’s really funny. You’ll like her.

Who the hell is she?


I am a writer living in Seattle and I believe that life is a grand adventure and only boring if you believe it to be. Plus! You don't need money to have fun.

I live with my husband, a photographer by education and a maker-of-video-games by trade, and a baby named gabe in an apartment on the hill.

I am romantic about most things and I cry... about almost anything. I tell stories to entertain you, I spread stories to keep you in the loop. I am not a grammar freak, but I do know how to spell it. I am exceedingly proud of my scrambled eggs and I really could eat an entire pan of cupcakes. If I met me, I would be my best friend. I tend to be irreverent.

If you would like to chat with me or see what else I'm up to you can follow me on Twitter (betterinrealife), on facebook, or email me at betterinrealife at gmail.
