Annitsa (It's Ukrainian.)

All the Latest

So, sit back, don't relax--get excited!--and read on.  All main site photos by Jenna Jones.

This whole work from home thing is interesting.  It kinda sounds like the dream, right?  I mean, staying in your pajamas all day, lounging on the couch, watching reruns of Chrisley Knows Best in the background.  Perfection.  Welllll, don't be too quick to load up the D...

So when I started writing a blog seven years ago (on Tumblr then) I set out to do one thing: be honest in order to connect.  Over the years I've shared a lot of heartbreak and sadness, and I've gotten beautiful personal messages that have led me to believe that I've ac...

"He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,

He reached out to grab my hand, interlacing his fingers with mine so seamlessly that I hardly noticed but to feel the jump in my heart.  Sure that I was the one to fill his mind tonight.  Such a small declaration to produce so much anticipation.  His eyes looked soft a...

 This is a photo of most of the Sprynczynatyks circa 1995 wishing you all the love.  Whenever my dad would go on business trips we would say goodbye at the airport (back when you could still go to the gate without having a ticket) and give this heart gesture.  We make...
