My latest article for +Bustle explains why #ValentinesDay can be a struggle for couples too!

Check out my latest piece on +Bustle about five common New Year's resolutions and what you should do instead. #NewYears   #NewYearsResolutions  
It’s a typical end-of-the-year habit: As we turn the page from one year to a new one, we make vows to ourselves (and maybe even let some of our loved ones and social media followers know, too) to make a change in our lives, no matter how big or small. And then? We tend to break them. Not just us —

Catch up on Game 2 of the #WorldSeries with my recap for The Hudsucker, and turn on your TVs to Game 3 now! #STLCards #RedSox

#HappyNewYear  everyone! I wrote this +Bustle  article yesterday for my fellow San Franciscans. Whether you're a native, semi-longtime resident, or recent transplant, make these nine resolutions for 2015 to make the most out of living in the beautiful big city.
