Falling in Love

My King.

June 19, 2012

There are very few men on the planet like Seth. Yes, he is tall, dark and handsome – and down right, scrumptious – and yes, he rides a motorcycle and plays guitar, but those are just a few pieces to the Seth puzzle. He has friends or makes friends where ever he goes. They may […]

On the other side…

January 3, 2012

It is our second date. Our first date after our coffee date. So, in my mind, this is our first real date. I am wearing my favorite gray Calvin Klein dress. It’s just short enough, but not too short and hits mid thigh. To keep off the Fall chill I’m wearing my light brown suede […]

8 Days

September 12, 2010

Eight days of semi-single momdom left. I know I’m not entirely a single mom anymore, having a man around and all. A deeply considerate and helpful man at that. But still, in eight days that door will be permanently shut, right now it’s swinging back and forth a bit and there’s a crack of light […]

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 […]

New Love

January 3, 2010

On New Year’s Eve, John Bear’s little brother brought his girlfriend along from New York City. The two are absolutely smitten with each other and I couldn’t help but take picture after picture of them. Maybe because they’re so damn cute together or maybe because I could picture them just like this walking down a […]

Scrambled Eggs and AP Lit

October 1, 2009

A few weeks ago I got an e-mail inviting me to speak to four AP Lit classes. The teacher, one Mr. David Rickert, had been turned onto my blog by his wife and thought my philosophies on dating and love could serve as a great guide for his students in conjunction with the books they […]

Man things (and a video)

September 30, 2009

When I first started dating John Bear his dog drove me crazy. Every time I would come over Murphy would jump on me, scratching my bare legs with his thick doggy claws and if he wasn’t jumping he was panting and staring at me, all the while emitting a subtle doggy smell. When I put […]

A messy business

September 13, 2009

“Are those poop bags in your pockets again?” I see the top of a bright blue plastic bag sticking out of his shorts. “I always come prepared,” he says. Always is right. John Bear is seldom without a poop bag or two sticking out of his cargo short pockets. I’m always telling him to stick […]

“If everything works out with John, Benjamin won’t know a time when he wasn’t around.” As my therapist’s words sink in the last three years of my life flash through my mind; from the beginning when I packed everything up and moved into my mother’s, to the quiet nights at her house in the woods […]
