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

The Wedding Dress

September 15, 2010

My Mom and I stopped into a bridal boutique a few days after John and I’s engagement. We were right there. So, why not? I’m not by any means a wedding planning bridezilla. Quite the opposite I’m afraid. The very thought of planning another wedding, even though my first happened so quickly, makes me a [...]

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 [...]
