Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I haven't quite gotten around to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust.

TTFN, y'all.

There's no such thing in the U.S., so that half bottle of wine the husband I drink at night goes right to the widening hips. Or went to them, I should say. The buck stopped about a month ago, when I got off that wine-soaked arse, joined the gym, starting leaving the house during (gasp) daylight hours (the life of an American freelancer living outside of SF or NY is a decidedly anti-social, lonely one) and mixing a few magical ingredients into my food (which is, I'll have you know, mostly vegan this month (thank you for suggesting it, husband)). One of them being Maca Root. Why? Let me tell you...
