Who doesn't need a hug once in a while from a soft, squishy teddy bear? When life gets to be a little bit too much how do you deal? When the atrocities of the world all get to be a little bit too heavy how do we reconcile that with our sense of gratitude? I… Continue reading Self Care
I have a confession. I can be.....an asshole. One of my Best Girlfriends is having a bit of a time. I won't say she's struggling, because she's not - she kicks ass at everything she touches, but she's admittedly got a lot of balls in the air. She's a Mom of some amazing tiny humans… Continue reading The Amazing Power of Women
So technically these are limes in the photo, but it was a photo on my camera roll that seemed to fit. Life man. Adulting, getting older. It all is a mixed bag of good, bad, indifferent, marginally suck-worthy and sometimes extra fabulous. A couple of things happened yesterday. I saw a new chiropractor and he… Continue reading When life gives you lemons, ask for tequila!
Oh Valentine's Day. Here you are again - you little Bastard. You may remember the photo above from a post from January of last year. It spoke to me then because it was a metaphor for my heart. My tender, fragile heart surrounded in spikes to keep everyone out to ensure I wouldn't get hurt… Continue reading VD is upon us….again.
As a society, it's my opinion that we don't practice enough self-care. Especially those of us who are single and hustling every day to make that money, be responsible grown ups, pay the bills, go to jobs and somewhere in there nurture our important relationships.

When I ended my marriage over two years ago, over time I found freedom. I could make my own choices without consulting anyone else and could set new goals and challenges for myself. One of those goals was to do yoga. I used to be a gym rat with my ex-husband. We would go to… Continue reading Goals
Let's face it. I'm pretty much the authority now on being successfully single and loving it. (Please say "Authority" in the voice of Cartman from South Park) So I thought it would be beneficial to write an instructive blog post on how to have a Sexy Saturday Night on this last weekend of 2018. Let… Continue reading Sexy Saturday Night (with instructions)
I woke up this morning with John Lennon's Christmas Song in my head. "So this is Christmas and what have you done? Another year over, a new one just begun." It's hard to wake up on December 25th and not think of all the Christmas' spent when the ex and I were married, as we… Continue reading Christmas 2018
Remember when I told y'all that I'm like Rain Man with dates? It's both a blessing and a curse. Two years ago today I came home (It was a Friday) and kicked my husband out of our home. I'd found out he'd been lying about working, he'd been accused of committing a felony and he… Continue reading Two Years Ago Today….
Will my mind ever cease being an ever swirling pool of anniversaries and dates? I am like Rainman with dates and anniversaries. They bubble up in my memory and I just can't help it. Today is a perfect example. November 12th. The day before my son's birthday. The day 24 years ago that my ex… Continue reading Anniversaries & Milestones
