Falling in Love

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.

My First Time

August 2, 2009

I met the first boy who would break my heart at a party. My legs were crossed and I had a pillow on my lap, my back leaning into the corner of the sofa. Working three jobs over my summer break between my freshman and sophomore years of college I liked this spot in the […]

Do you still believe in “The One”?

November 18, 2008

I am a former married single mother. Which is why I am now an unmarried single mother. The only difference – I now have half of the laundry and half of the dishes to clean. Seriously. When your husband contributes very little around the house, when you’re the one driving the kids to and from […]
