Mila tries starting over.

I’ve been thinking about what to do here for a few months. I didn’t want to just write a blog about cooking anymore. It meant a lot to me, but with all of the changes happening in my life, things seemed to shift so quickly, and I saw things differently. The biggest theme in my…

The last post from Tales From The Kitch

Today I heard that the ripe age of 25 for a woman is WEIRD. Like, for some reason your entire world changes, and you have a quarter life growth spurt of the mind and soul. That’s probably why I’m feeling so weird these days – angry, unapologetic, somewhat outspoken, questioning all the things. Just weird.…

All the things no one ever tells you about your wedding.

  Bryan and I got married on the September 18th that’s confusing, right? Well, we’re still going to Paris to exchange vows, but needed a marriage license to make it official and validated in the U.S. We decided to get hitched early, but our families wanted to come along too, so we had a tiny ceremony…

Alllllllll of the dress I didn’t buy.

I wanted to share this post because despite the incredible sense of dread I felt about dress shopping, now that I’ve given away all of my money for a dress I’ll wear twice (just kidding, but seriously, I wanted to faint on that swipe!) it was actually all very fun. I initially hated the thought…

The Best of Both Worlds

As you can tell, I’m in the process of re-doing my blog. It’s been in this “under construction” kind of phase for months now, but I’m so undecided about what I want. Most people would take it down, but it forces me to confront this idea that I don’t really know everything. For once, I’m…

The most refreshing drink of your summer.

A refreshing summer drink to help you beat the heat.

When you’re waiting to get married, time moves so SLOWLY.

I’ve come back to blogging every so often. My mind is less crowded with things lately, and for MONTHS I’ve tried to write things that are meaningful to me, but I just couldn’t get the words out. One of my latest thoughts has been about how September 2016 seems SO FAR AWAY, and it is.  Bryan…

2-2-2: an exercise in dating my fiancé.

Dating my fiancé? Yeah, you read it right! Being in a relationship isn’t as easy is seems. It takes a lot of work, every single day, to give love and to receive love. I work harder at my relationship with Bryan than I do anything else. It’s one of the most important things I’ve got in…

I tried this once. I try everything just about once. Sometimes I go back to it, and sometimes it’s not worth it, but this particular thing was worth it to me after consulting with a few people who’d done it, loved it, and are happy with the choice. I’d been teetering on the edge of being…

From long to short.

For as long as I could remember, I’ve been wearing weaves, hair extensions, and whatever else I could to cover up my own crazy locks. When I first wasn’t sure how to control PCOS, or what vitamins to take, my hair would fall out in huge chunks, and hair extensions were a better alternative. Most…
