Sharing is Caring…Literally

I grew up in a household with five other siblings, three being younger than me, and I can recall despising the concept of sharing. I would look at the adults and think, none of THEM are sharing - why do I have to? I would go to school and balk at the kids wanting to borrow... Continue Reading →

The Happiness Factor

The other day, I had the most amazing discussion with an older woman, in her early 80s, named Joyce M. I met her at an alteration shop, and she watched as I tried on my bridesmaid dress, waiting to be pinned. She told me how beautiful it was, and we chatted about her wedding, and...

It’s Better to Heal…Than to Hurt

It's very easy to run away from and avoid the reality of our lives. It's even easier to harbor hatred and feigned indifference, than it is to examine ourselves and determine the role we've played in the demise of something that was once deemed important and beautiful.

And it's not something super serious, but it's something super important. I get my inspiration for my posts in the most... Continue Reading →

Back Scrubs and Doggie Bags

Yeah, yeah, another post about being single. But this is a serious one. Soooo serious. You never realize how many things you take for granted when you're a part of a couple, especially when it's all you've known for ten or more years. Obviously, when you get that far, you just assume that it's going to... Continue Reading →

Dating…With Children

Dating, in this day in age, is difficult (as I've said in other posts, I'm sure, of which I'm also sure you're sick of hearing, but eh). Throw some kids in the mix, and you're just asking to be single until those little ones go off to college. Child-less people feel weird entertaining others with children,... Continue Reading →
