Y’all know I generally spend my vacation volunteering someplace. This year I decided instead to treat myself to something decadent just for me: the Labyrinth Masquerade Ball. I’d started following this Los Angeles event while I was still working for ThinkGeek, but the timing usually made it fall on the opening weekend of the Maryland […]


Spent last week in Kanab, Utah, enjoying my sixth trip to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary despite the universe trying to foil my intentions (HUGE thanks to Claire and Robert without whom the vacation literally wouldn’t have been possible).
