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. I remember suddenly realizing that I was looking at this whole being alone thing the wrong way. Perhaps I needed to think of the aloneness as being… Continue reading Happy Blogday!!
You all know I suffer from The Curse. The Curse of the Independent Woman. I don't need a man, I don't need a relationship. I don't need anyone to pay my bills or take care of my home or anything else. I'm like a stubborn toddler with a spoon and a jar of peanut butter..."I… Continue reading Lil Miss Independent asks for help
Twitter. It seems be be getting a new push and is a super active and dare I say hip place to be. Now, I've been on Twitter for over ten years in various account manifestations. I started my very first account after breast cancer and as a means to connect to other breast cancer survivors,… Continue reading My love affair with…
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
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 call it cocooning. I sort of wrap myself up in my apartment and don't want to talk. There's… Continue reading October

My sister said something to me last weekend when we were birding just outside Houston at Brazos Bend State Park (where I took this photo) that has stuck with me. She said that it's been a lot of fun watching me learn how to live again. I've sat with that all week. I have learned… Continue reading Make a wish!
It's happening. I'm auctioning my wedding ring. Now before you go thinking I'm having financial difficulties, I'm fine. I mean, we can all use some extra money for things like camera equipment, birding trips, cruises, drink packages for said cruises and things like that, amiright? No, this is just because I'm ready for this last… Continue reading Worthy?
