Mother. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Blogger. Aspiring writer. Smartass. Sometimes I say funny things.


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!

    You’re absolutely right about humor. Thanks for following my blog.


  5. You are right, life in general is funny (both “haha” funny and “holy crap!” funny.) Add in motherhood and dating and you’ve got… your very funny blog. Can’t wait to read more.


  6. I swear sometimes you are chanelling me!


  7. Oh my gosh…I was looking up stuff on the internet and happened to end up on one of your blog posts (can’t say which one because I don’t want anyone to know how pathetic I am with the stuff I search…but NO, I wasn’t searching anything to do with the Pinky blog). Anyway, I enjoyed it so much that I read a bunch of the others. You are SUPER funny.
