How a robot and Cincinnati's Hottest Bachelor taught me that anything is possible


  1. Those cookies look delicious!

  2. Les

    Ohh awesome cookies!
    Have I mentioned I’m jealous of you yet? Maybe? No?

  3. What pretty cookies … something tells me they tasted as good as they look :-)

    Hope you had a fabulous first day that was filled with writing frenzies and many sparks of inspiration!

  4. Please specify who’s who in the second photo.

  5. Those are such pretty cookies! Congrats on your first day as a full time writer!!

  6. Hope you’re enjoying the life of a writer! My favorite part: staying in pajamas past noon :)

  7. Thanks, everyone!

    Hmm, no, I don’t think you have. ;)

    Well, seeing as the dog is asleep… :P

  8. Hi Kristan! Congratulations! I’m totally jealous! When you get a chance, please tell me what the secret is to being able to quit a day job. Lottery tix? Credit card debt? Mysterious secret admirer sending support?
    PS – also — did you design this site yourself? It’s fabulous!

  9. Hey Kristan! I’m glad you stumbled across my blog and I’m glad I found yours! Looking forward to seeing how your journey unfolds! Best wishes!

    Wow! Nice cookies. I say keep in touch with these people, :)

  11. Sharon-
    Haha, none of the above. Basically my parents had saved some money for me to go to college, and I didn’t end up using it all (thanks to scholarships and loans) so that’s what I’m dipping into now. I would never, NEVER have done this if it meant going into debt. A secret admirer, however, wouldn’t hurt… ;P

    And yes, I designed this site myself. Thanks! Design (especially for web) is a hobby of mine.

  12. Loved the pictures! You are such an inspiration to us writers, Kristan. Keep pursuing those writing aspirations…no…matter…what!

  13. Congratulations! Good for you! A bold and exciting new step. I wish you good fortune and happiness. Lucky dog you’ve got there, gets to have a stay-at-home mommy. ;)
