Party of One

I talk a big game, but some days are harder than others.  Some days people and places can fly by me and not even cause a ripple.  Other days, places, people, memories, dates can really send me into a full-blown pity-party. Today was one of those days.  For a number of reasons I shan't go… Continue reading Party of One

Sleepless in Texas

No Dating Zone

I did a thing today.  I deleted my dating apps.  I'll admit, it was kind of fun seeing all the men who hit "Like" on my photo, and I have probably benefitted in the self esteem department from it.  I had to be honest with myself though, I have no interest in dating or even… Continue reading No Dating Zone

No Contact

I never know what is going to inspire me to write on a subject.  I got home earlier today from my Girlfriend Getaway mini-vacation and am really tired, possibly a little (more than possibly) hung over, so even though I thought about trying to write something for the blog, I hadn't been hit by the… Continue reading No Contact

Firsts

Adulting can be bitter-sweet sometimes.  Outside of my day job, I'm also a makeup artist on the side and I am honored to be doing my friends makeup for her wedding in a couple of months. This will be my first wedding since the divorce and to be honest, I hadn't really thought this all the way through.  The idea of a wedding makes… Continue reading Firsts
