Produce Pressure

An over-dramatic tale of a trip to the supermarket.  I shut the car door and click lock on the center button. “Beep,” the car shouts at me. I can remember the days when a person had to physically put their key in the door to unlock it, now it’s buttons. I’ve heard of cars that […]

How to be human

A story of sorts, this is a reflection I wrote while sitting in a park in Chestnut Hill. My attempt to be “deep” in a sense.   As I sit here, beneath the green leaves of the forest, I wonder. I wonder why it is that I am here. Why, of all places, have I ended up […]

An Ode To The Missing Piece

I know I put you and your friend in at the same time. I know for certain there were no hiccups in the transfer. I know this. I would bet my life on this. When the cycle ending signal shouts, I open the dryer and peer into the gaping hole. I have such confidence in […]

An Open Letter to Fantasy Baseball

Dear Fantasy Baseball, I don’t like you. In fact, I don’t see a need for you to exist. I know I am being quite blunt right off the bat, but I’ve felt this way since we met and it’s only right that I speak my mind. I first came in contact with you a little […]

Cohabitating

I like to be different in things that I do. I don’t know that I am any different than the next person, but I do try in some respects to step away from the norm. For example, I recently cut my long hair really short, one because it’s easier and two because I like to […]

Tilt-A-Whirl Brain

Tis’ the season to be thankful. Thanksgiving was last week. This Thanksgiving was different again for the Sprandio fam. It was significantly smaller. We downsized this year due to the impending nuptials occurring this Friday. It was a nice quiet dinner with some of my immediate family. I often use the holiday season as a […]

Hello, again

Hello there everyone. I have been on a short hiatus. I don’t want to be lame and blame it on wedding planning, but I will. I’ve been super busy and haven’t taken the time to sit down and write out my thoughts. I finally have some time today to catch you up on my life. […]

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on

My best friend got married last weekend. My 3rd oldest brother and his wife welcomed their first child, Sadie Grace Sprandio. This Sunday, my youngest brother leaves for California for a 5-year PhD program. Zach and I get the keys to our new apartment this afternoon. Oh, and I get married in 85 days. Um, […]

100 Days

Yesterday marked 100 days until I say I do. (But, hey, who’s counting.) Last weekend, Zach and I attended pre-cana. For those of you who don’t know, pre-cana is a marriage preparation course offered by the Archdiocese. We are required to complete the preparation in order to get married in the church. It was 6:30-9:30 […]
