At the end of each year, I create a 12 song playlist as a musical scrapbook. One song for each month – the song that was my perpetual jam, that I couldn’t stop singing in the shower, that seems to capture my vibe. I know each of these songs backwards & forwards.

Here they are! My favorite books of 2019. In 2018, there was one piece of nonfiction on my list. In 2017, there were none. This year, there are six.

IT IS SPRING. SPRING IS HERE. NYC may not have made up its mind yet (as I’m writing this, it is 40, raining, and the grayest of gray skies) but I have. And it is spring in my mind. This week I painted each of my nails a different color to celebrate just that. It’s the most festive I’ve ever felt. And I’m a pretty festive human.Continue reading
