On Mountains and Dumping that Dude

July 5, 2011

My camera is not cooperating. I can’t upload a single photo from Montana. My iPhoto keeps crashing, maybe because I took so many? These pictures from Uncle Ez will do until then. Couldn’t wait to share this one… The mountain and the lake, Swiftcurrent Lake, were just outside of our hotel – the Many Glacier […]

The end (again)

June 15, 2011

Trust must come before love and love can’t survive without trust. I felt absolutely certain I could love him again. I tried to forget. I felt that I could conquer the past. But I couldn’t. And something was missing. The trust? The original love we had? I wasn’t sure, but being so unsure, standing on […]

Too Personal?

February 9, 2011

I have no filter. I have also been told I have absolutely no poker face, although, ironically, I am pretty good at poker. With the break up settling in and my single self completely and absolutely single again, I have been wondering what it will feel like to be on a date again. Or to […]

The aftermath.

January 2, 2011

It has been 9 days now. During each I have remained completely composed in front of Benjamin. I have been calm, engaged and present to play with him, talk to him and just be with him. Tomorrow it’s back to school and work. To our new reality. After I write this post I’ll be writing […]

Single Mom Manifesto

August 16, 2010

Expectations

July 8, 2010

My essay is out. Find it in the August issue of Woman’s Day. There is no online edition of my essay, so you’ll have to pick one up the old-fashioned way.

Traditional

June 24, 2010

It has been 11 years now without a father to celebrate Father’s Day. But, fortunately for this lucky girl, John Bear’s father is just as amazing as his son. There is nothing quite like a good father. And if my Dad were here, he would love Papa Bear. Been a while since I’ve posted pictures. […]
