Obama and Stem Cells

“Name one thing Obama has done during his presidency,” Cory challenged me.

It’s Not Just A Ring

Unlike most women (or any woman I know), my fiancĂ© proposed to me with a toy ring. We were sitting in Brooklyn Bridge Park after just having hiked across the infamous Brooklyn Bridge, when he turned to me and asked me to marry him. The proposal came as a surprise for two reasons. The first […]

What am I… chopped liver?

My fiancĂ© Cory is the most loved man in downtown Los Angeles and it’s not just by me. He’s congratulated by bums, strangers and other random people any time we are walking down the sidewalk together hand in hand. “You are so sweet,” one middle-aged man…

The Pressures of Wedding Planning

Unlike most women, I never dreamed of planning a traditional wedding day. I dreamed of a quick trip to Las Vegas or the Justice of Peace. My wedding day, or at least the allusion I had created in my mind, would require little fuss and a lot of love. It’d be my secret to keep until…

John Williams and the Hollywood Bowl

Upon first arriving to Los Angeles, Cory suggested we go see John Williams live at the Hollywood Bowl. I agreed because I trust Cory’s judgements and also because I happen to enjoy unknown adventures. Not to mention a few days prior to the offer, my curiosity was peaked when I overheard a stranger mention the outdoor venue was a…
