Hi there!  Welcome to Pink-Briefcase, a blog for focusing on the good bits of life.  I started this little website as a much-needed creative outlet during law school, and it has changed along with me as I finished law school, got married, passed the bar, completed a fellowship, and moved across the country and back again.

About me:  I’m in my early 30s (when did that happen?!?!), married to H, and have an adorable cat named Winston.  I work in my dream job (which, like most jobs doesn’t always feel like a dream job) in my dream city.

Some things I love:

  • Women’s magazines, lifestyle blogs and all of that.  I love them, even though I’m also kind of terrible at dressing myself.
  • Going new places.
  • Writing about writing, reading about writing.
  • History.  And Literature.  And funny movies.
  • Watching television.
  • Cooking and baking and trying new recipes.  Also eating generally.
  • Politics and Religion.  I’m careful about these topics because of (a) my job and (b) there are people I love who disagree with me.  But, I’m not that careful.

Let’s connect:

    You really do sound like an amazing person. I don’t know if you’re involved in prison issues still. If so, I am looking for individuals / groups who might benefit from receiving access to the 12 years of work done by my grassroots criminal justice reform group. In any case, best wishes!

    Wow, you’re such an inspirational young woman! I am a recent University of Connecticut graduate in Political Science. Although gender politics is closely related to my blog, I never imagined 4,000 followers later in three months. I hope I can take my blogging skills and apply them somewhere soon. My debt will never go away. haha I wish the best of luck in all your academic and blogging endeavors for 2013. Take care, love.

    I went to Lambuth for my first semester of college! (Thankfully, I left before it became none existent.) I am also a Tennessee transplant (from Franklin) I now live in Florida. :)
