This blog originated years ago when I was newly divorced, to share some funny dating stories, at the insistence of some friends. It evolved into more than that with some very personal posts, as life has added and taken away, and I have grown.
I am admittedly a work in progress.
Present day (’18): I’m officially middle aged (I think), two teenage girls (bless it), a ridiculous little Yorkie named Winston who gets dog-shamed occasionally (good thing he’s cute).
I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, and am walking through that pain and journey to healing every day, realizing that I AM ENOUGH.
I write like I talk. I talk like I’m telling a story and I want you there with me.
Everything on here is 100% ME. It will always be ME posting. ME responding to your comments.
If you read a post that you love, that moves you, that you think someone else needs to hear, please share it on your social media platforms. And please subscribe so you NEVER miss a post!
