Home Sweet Where?

By Victoria Easter Wilson / May 16, 2012 /

…Obviously I haven’t quite gotten the hang of managing my time after work. There seems to be a million things to do and only four hours to do them! So, here are a few brief thoughts. Not at all everything I’d hope to write. What will be will be. I haven’t quite stopped thinking about…

The Snooty Cheese Lady

By Victoria Easter Wilson / May 6, 2012 /

There is a charming European-style Wine+Market across the street from my office. Though the goods are exorbitantly priced, the epicurean treats cleverly excuse themselves on their own delicious merits. Having a penchant for all things European, I take lunch there whenever my wallet allows me a chance. Last week as I was enjoying my slices…

Spring thoughts for a spring-ish evening

By Victoria Easter Wilson / April 15, 2012 /

Sitting on my back patio, wishing I could find the words to tack down everything that I’ve been thinking lately. I have hinted at my case of writer’s block before, and it seems to me the best way to overcome such ailments is to just WRITE. To write in a very rambling, Virgina Woolf stream-of-consciousness…

Something to think on.

By Victoria Easter Wilson / April 2, 2012 /

 Ben preached a sermon this Sunday and a verse from his text especially struck me. (For those who don’t know, Ben is my pretty awesome and super handsome boyfriend! He loves me more than I deserve and I appreciate him more than he knows.) You can read the whole sermon on his blog. Image created…

Been acting pretty crummy, feeling pretty crummy

By Victoria Easter Wilson / March 1, 2012 /

Not much to say other than I’ve been blowing it this evening. Can’t lie, work was stressful today: end of the month reporting pressures, computer issues for most of the morning, interpersonal office dynamics flaring up, and a day full of storm sirens. Thought I was handling it all very well (Warning #1) and left…

An addict, a princess, and a king

By Victoria Easter Wilson / January 12, 2012 /

I’ll just confess: I enjoy following the royalfamily. I dutifully woke up at the crack of dawn to watch Will and Kate tie theknot; they needed my support. I bought all those Princess Diana books Goodwill hasin safekeeping, you know exactly what I’m talking about. I subscribe to“Clarence House” on Twitter. I drink out of…

How does God relate to Football Refs?

By Victoria Easter Wilson / January 11, 2012 /

I’ve never been much for sports, but now I find myself dating a guy who is crazy over Reds baseball, Ohio State games, and Bengals football. I find myself having conversations I never thought possible, like about how amazing that Hail Mary pass was or how talented Aaron Rodgers is. Sports do take a turn…

A Year in Review

By Victoria Easter Wilson / January 2, 2012 /

As I reflect upon the past twelve months – as many people do at one year’s end and another’s beginning – I realize that 2011 has been a bit of a roller coaster. That’s no exaggeration. In December alone I completed two major final projects, attended my grandfather’s funeral, graduated from college, celebrated my twenty-second…
