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. Where in there is time to nurture ourselves? Lately I've… Continue reading Self care
The word forgiveness is at the forefront of my thoughts today. It's still early on this lazy Saturday morning. I've walked the dog, did the yoga and am settled in with a cup of coffee and my laptop to do some journaling. Then I realized something. I'm not angry anymore. Tomorrow will be February 3rd,… Continue reading Forgiveness
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
I've been seeing, reading, and saying this motto recently Getting divorced sucks. Being divorced doesn't. I know, it's been a minute since I last wrote a blog post.

I noticed this morning that the Single and Selfish Facebook page had a lot of notifications. When I looked I saw that a friend of mine had gone on a reading binge of my blog and can I just tell you how deliciously happy that made me? Have you noticed that everyone has a blog… Continue reading #ProjectHappy
It's been a few weeks since I've sat down to write. I just haven't been inspired. In creative projects like this there are going to be ebbs and flows in the process. My energies have been elsewhere. I've been busier than I've been in a long time at work, I've been going on a lot… Continue reading Rabbit Holes
I took this photo on our most recent Sister Birding Adventure. My sister focuses on birds. Birds are her thing. Birds are my thing too, but so is landscape, shape, plants, insects, dead things...yes, I photograph the occasional dead thing, it's ok my sister doesn't get it either. I edited this photo and named it… Continue reading Spider Cactus?
I've mentioned in previous blogs that I'm becoming a rather geeky camera nerd. My sister is quite the photography artist - you can check her out at The Back Yard Bird Nerd and we really enjoy going on photography adventures from sun up to sun down, all over the wonderful nature centers and parks we… Continue reading When you think all is ruined….beauty
