February 17, 2016

My single mom friend and blogger, Emma Johnson, is such an inspiration. I met her years ago at the 2012 BlogHer conference. At the time, she was just about to begin her own blog on being a single mother. Flash forward to today and she has tens of thousands of readers and is still a […]

November 4, 2012

Here’s an interesting question from a Facebook fan. This question, by the way, could have come from me a few years ago, or from many single mom friends I know who are struggling with dating right now. The question is from Sarah, a dating single mom… Alright, I’m about to give up! I’ve done the […]

The waiting.

June 24, 2012

I talk like it’s easy to be single. I tell you all how fantastic it can be. But, I had my moments. My moments while I was waiting and wanting to find love. I kept myself preoccupied and even believed I had found it when in fact, I had not. I loved and learned. Broke […]

Single Moms and Dads: Dating and Blending Family Advice

June 13, 2012

So… we had our first Google Hangout. None of you were actually there to “hang out” with us. I’m not surprised, it’s a weird new medium and you’d actually be on camera!!! Talking directly to us.

And then there were three…

January 9, 2012

And I absolutely love them all. The Mr. and I were talking today about blending families. From our initial digging on Amazon, it doesn’t look like there are very many books on the subject for modern single parents.

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 […]

Another perspective

November 10, 2011

She is only a fresh seven years old. I cross my legs and sit down by her cousin’s Barbie house. There’s a party going on for her one year old cousin and even though I want to be meeting his family, I would rather – in this moment – be here with her. There are […]

Romance in the air?

September 13, 2011

The leaves are falling, the days are shorter, there is Halloween stuff every where, I just found an awesome vintage fur coat at a thrift store and I find myself wishing I had a manperson to share it with. But why? I don’t want to be wanting one, when clearly there isn’t one anywhere on […]
