EARN THE SKIRT

EARN THE SKIRT

Growing up, I wasn't much of a sporty girl, (dare I say a girly, girl?) I was usually last when chosen for sports, and I definitely wasn't climbing trees, I still can't do a cartwheel, but that's probably a good thing. It's not that I didn't want to, I just never thought I was good [...]

Valentines Day

Valentines Day

For the past six years, Valentine's day for me was a bust, well ok, I may have poured myself a glass or two of wine, and commiserated how it sucks to be single. There was a time when Valentine's day got me excited, but that was a much younger naive me. To be honest, it's [...]

One Year

One Year

For the past year, you've followed along on my journey with the new man in my life. I guess I can't use the word "new" anymore, we've just hit the one year mark. It's hard to believe, the time has gone so fast, but when I stop to think of all we have seen and done together, [...]

SNOW DAY

SNOW DAY

It snowed last night, and for this west coast girl, it brings the child out in me. Don't get me wrong, as long as I don't need to drive anywhere, I love it, snow angels and all.  For those of you who live in subzero temperatures, you must be exhausted looking at all that fluffy [...]

Friendship

Friendship

If you're a fan of Sex and the City, then you'll remember Carrie's reaction to Berger when he broke up with her on a post-it note. The flower vase full of carnations went flying, and she lost her shit! Yes, he broke up with her, but it was how he did it, seriously, wtf?! I [...]

Travelling​ Duo

Travelling​ Duo

Who would have guessed, a year after writing "Flying Solo" I would be flying duo? If you had told me, this time last year, I would be boarding a plane to Paris with a special someone, I probably would have called you crazy, or at the least, given you an eye roll.  Our trip was [...]

San Francisco

San Francisco

Tony Bennet sang, "I left my heart in San Francisco",  it's easy to understand why.  For starters, San Francisco, with its iconic Golden Gate bridge, cute cable cars, ocean breeze and sunny climate, how can you not fall in love? There are many layers to this vibrant city, the show-stopping architecture alone could keep you [...]

An Interview

An Interview

We've all done them, interviews, I seriously doubt any of us really enjoy the process. I can hold my own for the most part, it's when they start asking questions, like, "tell me about a time you overcame an obstacle?" or "what's your biggest weakness?" and "why should we hire you?" Ha!  I become a [...]

DIVORCED

DIVORCED

It's official, I'm divorced. Another first, making me a statistic and joining thousands of other unsuccessful marriages. I now have to live with the stigma of "divorce" which in my mind equals failure. That said, I am looking at this with glass is full attitude, feeling proud of 31 years with the same partner. Let's face [...]
