It’s 5:30 AM and I’m cleaning up toys. I heard Izzy chirping through the monitor at 4:30 for a bit. She was happy, at least. (Or, to give her due credit, I should say as usual.) But while she did eventually fall back asleep, I did not. Well… I might as well get up and be productive… Izzy has a large playpen, which has … Continue reading this is it?
New Year, new you, right? ...Probably not. In my experience, resolutions only last until February, and (usually) that's okay. But this year feels different. In 2016, I graduated college, broke up with a long-term boyfriend, interned at my dream job, started a new full-time position in New York, fell in love again, began a hellish commute, … Continue reading one thing at a time: keeping yourself sane in the New Year
Last week, as I did my Sunday morning Instagram perusing, I stumbled across this mouth-watering spread: At that moment, I truly understood hardship: being able to see such a beautiful display so close, and yet, tragically, so far away. Luckily, the photo was posted by my sister, who let me in on her and her … Continue reading how to create the perfect brunch spread

Certainly wasn’t … Continue reading the best gift ever
When you go to college to play a sport, it essentially becomes your whole life. The only thing you can think about is eating, schoolwork, and how many minutes you have to nap before your next practice. I played Division I soccer at Fairleigh Dickinson University for three years. During those three years, I experienced … Continue reading giving up the game
Let's get one thing straight: change sucks. When I first went off to college, I felt I was ready, but the separation from my hometown girlfriends (we literally roll like 12 deep) was too much for me. But, these last 4 years, I learned a lot about myself and the world. My priorities became more … Continue reading dealing with your post-graduation meltdown
Welcome to The LipLiner—a project I hope will develop into a space in which people can go to read and write to their hearts content. My name is Bridget...feel free to call me Bridget, or Bird, or Quiggs (there's a fun story with the last two, I swear). I’m 22 years old and a recent … Continue reading an introduction: bridget
