You know those holiday cards some families send out in attempts to elevate their children to Jesus status? The cards that while reading make you want to crawl under the table and cringe in embarrassment…or simply vomit. Well those are my favorites to read, obviously. Almost as gripping as watching Keeping up with the Kardashians.
If my parents were those weirdos who send novels about their children to long-lost 1st grade classmates, here’s what they would say about me:
In 2013, like last year, Caroline still had no idea what career path she’d like to pursue. This indecision and search for a greater good led her to move from San Francisco to New York, back home to LA (thank god it was only for a few weeks), and then to Jackson, WY where she now resides. What gumption that she moved to a town she’d never before visited. And get this – she even ran two marathons and complained to us daily about her lack of preparedness and training. We pride Caroline on being our most indecisive, impulsive, and crazy child.
Happy (belated) New Year Petunias! xo

Best Jamz of 2013
“I have no problem with the idea behind YOLO—that you should live your life and do things you want to do. But it got so co-opted and homogenized and boring. People were like, ‘Hey, I’m gonna go take a shit in that driveway—YOLO!’ It’s like, ‘Well, no, you’re just shitting on a person’s driveway.’ That’s not really seizing the day. There’s YOLO and then there’s being a dick.” – Andy Samberg
Knitting and watching Breaking Bad.
Favorite article of clothing:
Navy blue jeans sprinkled with whitewashed tie-die from the knee down. I’ve heard from a few friends that it looks like I’m wearing gators…
