The Next Chapter

So here’s the thing. The Single & Selfish thing has pretty much run its course. I am for all intents and purposes, living full time with The Judge. I still have my apartment- my lease isn’t up until the end of the year, but I’d rather spend every night with him. It’s that great. This… Continue reading The Next Chapter

This is going to be gross

Screenshot from https://pin.it/3iTYV25 on Pinterest I warned you. This is going to be a gag-fest if you’re single and salty. Maybe that should have been my monicker instead of Single & Selfish. I digress...if you are one of my people who is anti love and anti relationship- which is totally ok!! You do you, Boo-Boo;… Continue reading This is going to be gross

Another scar….

I've written before that someday I'd like to get a tattoo that reads "Scars are like birthmarks but with better stories". Scars are funny.  Some are on the outside, some are on the inside.  Some scars heal and lighten on their own, and some scars are dark, rippled, puckered and pronounced forever.  We often don't… Continue reading Another scar….

Happy Blogday!!

It's our Blogaversary! Two years ago, I remember where I was, thoughts circling in my brain. I was thinking about my divorce, thinking about how alone I felt.

The New High in my life

My new high is when I'm in that sweet spot.  When it feels so good and I chase it again and again. I'm not talking about alcohol or any kind of illegal high, but I crave it just the same. No, I'm talking about that sweet window...just an hour or two when the ibuprofen stacked… Continue reading The New High in my life

Be Fearless

Little known fact, or maybe you already know it, I don't know, I don't live your life...I love personality quizzes. I also love podcasts. Combine the two and I'm one happy gal.

Speaking your truth

Can you ask for what you want?  Can you speak your truth even if it's uncomfortable and awkward? I have been in a low key relationship for the past three months with a lovely man.  Of course I am referring to Keanu.  He is strong, capable, smart, funny and has a litany of other qualities… Continue reading Speaking your truth

I’m a Junkie

An Experience Junkie, that is. As the photo of me with the fish will attest, I did in fact survive the excursion to the fishing lodge with The Chef.  He has proven himself to not be a serial killer, I found no evidence of blood or body fragments in the lodge and he was a… Continue reading I’m a Junkie
