I wrote a travel story on “where to shop now” in Morgantown, West Virginia, for Southern Living’s November issue. It also is posted online here. Read up! And, if you are feeling adventuresome, it’s worth a trip to Morgantown. Not mentioned in my story: the college town has great local beer and pepperoni rolls! cheers, marissa
I wrote a travel story on Richmond, Virginia, which was featured in the September issue of Southern Living. The story tells visitors how to experience the River City on a high and low budget, whether you are tubing on the James or shopping at a high-end boutique. Grab a copy on newsstands now! cheers, marissa
I recently wrote two pieces for HelloGiggles, a fabulous blog started by Zooey Deschanel, Molly McAleer and Sophia Rossi. I’ve been a fan of the site for awhile, because of its fun content, honest tone and supportive community of women. With all the snark and cynicism on the Internet these days, this blog is a breath of fresh air.
I wrote a personal essay about my struggles as an extrovert (read here), and a piece about how to decorate your house like a fancy cat lady (read here). These pieces were a blast to write. So happy to write for a community of hilarious, fun and smart women. xo, marissa
