Hello! My name is Beth. I’m a Midwesterner who migrated to New York City.

I like coffee, superhero movies, bears, Will & Grace, and winter hats. But mostly coffee.

I started this blog as a way to keep me writing. Here you’ll find everything from book talk, cooking experiments, my amateur photography, and Pinterest finds to random lists and snippets of my life. Sure it’s a little bit all over the place, but then so am I. (I also really enjoy talking about Pinterest. Like, a lot.)

Thanks for stopping by!
