Name Your Fear and Win

April 30, 2010

Fear is a real bitch. And it’s been a while since I’ve addressed the unique fears that come for single moms dating. Our fears, unfortunately, tend to control our dating lives for the first year as we regain our footing. But then, if you’re like me, we slowly gain control – recognizing a pattern. The [...]

One Year

April 28, 2010

One year ago today… When I got dressed that morning I thought about him. What should I wear? Something that doesn’t look like I’m trying and something that will still look cute at 5:45 when I leave work. It didn’t take long for me to decide on a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and a [...]

I’ll be dancing

April 26, 2010

In lieu of me writing you an entertaining blog post, here’s a video I can’t stop watching. Lady Gaga meets country rock (in Central Park). Enjoy. If you want more – the Morning Pages blog.

Absent, with reason

April 21, 2010

I’m sorry I’ve been absent lately but things have been crazy in these last final hours before the first Sway Social Marketing Workshop. There are still a few tickets left for the Sway Search Workshop (all about SEO) this May. Hint. Hint. You should come. Tickets are here. I’m so busy, all I can give [...]

Smoothies & the Duchess

April 19, 2010

Benjamin and I discovered, just this week, that our blender and fruit make for a nice mix. I know, duh – right? Toss in some yogurt and a little splash of juice and voila – you have a delicious smoothie. I think I’ve lost a few pounds already. No more eating out. Smoothies instead. And [...]

Family?

April 15, 2010

Being a single mom, small business owner/entrepreneur and blogger + girlfriend = frequent bouts of exhaustion and cravings for moments of peace and solitude. On one such afternoon, which happened to be yesterday afternoon, I collapsed on the couch while Benjamin hopped out onto the front porch to play with the sidewalk chalk. He was [...]

At the start

April 13, 2010

I have been so wrapped up in my own happiness lately – with my work, with John, with Benjamin (and not necessarily in that order, fluctuates with the day or more often, the time of day) – that I have lost sight of why I started this blog in the first place. A few weeks [...]

Never say never

April 11, 2010

If you would have asked me one year ago if I’d a) fall in love with a man or b) actually be caught dead on a golf course, or in this case a driving range; I would have clocked you silly on both counts. But you would have been right. Exhibit a) The man, the [...]

The seashore

April 8, 2010

After a pit stop in Charlottesville, Virgnia to see my little sister who had went out of her sweet way to get me a few 31st birthday presents and even make me a cake John and I made it to Tybee Island in Georgia. Like fish out of water, or washed up jelly fish buried [...]

Work

April 5, 2010

“This isn’t working is it?” “No, it’s not,” John answers. Working together, in the same office, just two feet away from each other had been talking it’s toll on John and I’s relationship. My boyfriend had been replaced with a co-worker and we couldn’t break the two, draw the lines, separate work from play. Starting [...]
