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 [...]

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 [...]

48 HOURS

48 HOURS

My ride to the airport arrived at my home in the early morning, it was both strangely familiar and surreal. As he rushed to toss my bags into the trunk, he informed me “I was listening to the news, but I turned on the music just for you” this made me laugh. Our banter picked up where [...]

Let's face [...]

A Connection

A Connection

What is a connection and why are some more powerful than others? I'm trying to understand the intricacies of how this energy, bond or emotional link with someone happens. I promise you, I'm not overthinking this, (well maybe a bit) more curious than anything. What sparks a connection? Is it an attraction or more, that feeling of "we [...]

Synchronicity

Synchronicity

FINALLY! The universe is listening to me, likely exhausted from hearing my cries and all of my F-bombs. Not giving the specifics, let's say synchronicity was at work several weeks ago, I said nothing, afraid I may jinx it for myself.  Hopefully, I wasn't calling his bluff, and the emotions were real.  It felt right, an [...]
