Don’t Date Pilots

I only titled this piece as such, because I thought you would read it if I told you not to date pilots. Really, this blog is called “Love + A Box Of Crackerjacks.” I hope you read it anyway. —Kara “Darling, you’re like the prize in a box of crackerjacks. You’re why we buy crackerjacks […]

I’m a flight attendant but NOT your next casual fling.

Maybe I underestimated you and for sure you’ve overestimated me. I assumed that you would have the capacity to think of me as more than a flight attendant fling or uncommitted counterpart. “It’s perfect,” you secretly surmise over two unpretentious cups of coffee— the type of beverage that squashes expectations and skirts responsibility. “She can’t, […]

Paris Is Always A Good Idea

The distinct piano notes, interrupted by beats and lyrics, carried a clear message through the dimly lit Parisian apartment. “Let’s have a toast for the assholes.

Ruined Me…

To you—I hope that you don’t read this, because I think it’s a hard thing to read that you are being talked about instead of talked to; so tread softly, take the words lightly, and simply know that you gave me the adventure to write about, and to that gift, I am forever grateful. Thank […]

Flings, Falling, & Fighting Time: The Way Of A Flight Attendant Relationship

I wish I knew when I would see you again. Do I matter to you? I think so, but I can’t tell with flight attendant life. Every moment feels so precious and so fleeting, because we move so fast. I’m not speaking about the rate that physical intimacy can travel at, but I’m referencing movement. That thing that […]

Going The Distance: Two Perspectives On Loving And Dating A Flight Attendant

Featured Image is by Melanie Robin Photographie  Months ago, I asked one of my dearest friends—Katy, who is a colleague of mine— and her boyfriend Frantz to write about their long distance relationship and what it’s like from both of their perspectives. We often get to hear about what it’s like being a flight attendant […]
