  • Shit Get Real. This is how it feels when your husband moves out. February 11, 2018
      Friends, let’s talk. It has come to my attention that I haven’t actually spent a lot of time here talking about my divorce, considering this is a blog about divorce. Why? Because divorce is hard.  Like really hard. So as I shared my story the last few months, I’ve spoken little about The X and the actual […]
  • Speed Dating: A Modern Girl’s Approach to Kissing a lot of Frogs to Find Her Prince February 8, 2018
    Dating is awful. Dating is awful. Like legit the fucking worst and dating after divorce is, even more, worse than that. Seriously. Dating. Wtf? Am I right ladies? All I get are dick pics, creepers, and stage 5 clingers. It’s offensive. I am trying though. Sometimes I’m ready to date. I have fun and am excited at […]
  • Baggage Claim: What do you with all the physical stuff after divorce? January 16, 2018
    Baggage. Let’s talk baggage.  Everyone carries it.  Baggage from past hurts, habits, and hang ups.  Things from the past we’d rather bury and move on from.  We carry emotional baggage, sometimes physical baggage, through our lives from one relationship to the next.  We may want to but sometimes it is hard to let go of.

  • 5 Ways to Use Your Wedding Dress After Divorce January 4, 2018
    Divorce Happens. Let’s face it. Divorce happens. In addition to being incredibly complicated and terribly heartbreaking (maybe…) you were also left with a ton of stuff. Stuff that once had great meaning and memories to you are now just a reminder of your failed marriage. By stuff, I mean pictures of you on your wedding […]
  • Move on. What happens when it’s just not that easy? December 13, 2017
      Just move on. Just move on.  That’s what people say.  It’s time.  Move on.  Two words.  Easy to say, hard to do, impossible to explain.  Like it’s just that easy?  If I could just move on I would have by fucking now.  So tell that to my fucking heart.  The last year I have teetered […]

  • Controlling Fear January 26, 2018
    Fear is normal. It is a protective reaction to the unknown and uncertain. It is healthy. Yet, it can also hold us back. Both mentally and often physically it keeps us frozen in place, unable to move … to grow. "Fear is normal. In fact, fear is good. Fear is what warns you when things […]
  • Taking the day off January 5, 2018
    It is difficult being a single parent. Stressful to deal with with school schedules, extracurricular activities, and then attempting to manage your own life. So, co-parenting to lend a break in the schedule and allow you time to focus on you. Extended breaks due to vacations and holidays can be nice to, giving a parent […]
  • A Fresh Start Begins with a Vision January 2, 2018
    Each new year starts with grand motivations. Desires to sweep away the past and start anew. Grand ambitions, resolutions, and intentions to make this coming year better than the previous one. A chance to change our lives. The best way to do that is create a vision of yourself and write it down. As I […]
  • The New Year is Upon Us December 30, 2017
    The current year is almost done and for the most part it has been a good one. Life over this past year has not been simple, but I enjoyed some adventures. Generally, I find myself in a more positive place than I was a year ago. As the New Year ball drops I find it […]
  • Parenting is about managing the moment December 17, 2017
    As a parent we want to create those memories, those experiences, those moments that will be cherished throughout time. These are the moments where we find ourselves looking back on nostalgically, and we want to recreate them for our own kids. Moments like the ones shown in movies, tv shows, and written about in books. […]

  • Getting Into Cars With Strange Men – Part 1 of 4 February 20, 2018
    You know when you were young and your Mum always told you not to take sweets from strangers and your school used to have sessions about not getting in cars with strange men? When did that change to the point that one random October Sunday I decided it was a good idea to make plans […]
  • You And Me Does Not Equal One Plus One February 16, 2018
    When it comes to dating someone new, I’m sure most of us have been guilty of rushing a little bit ahead of ourselves at one time, at least I know I have. Hell, that’s my go to when I meet someone new! But when is it flattering and when is it too much?
  • Women Can Be Assholes Too February 14, 2018
    This blog of mine is in no way meant to man-bash. Despite the frustrations I may have encountered with dating, and my experience with my ex-husband, and some of the shitty things guys have done, I’m still pro-men, I’m still pro-dating, I’m still pro-relationships.
  • Blah, Blah, Blah & Blah February 9, 2018
    After the excitement of Arms, I guess I knew the next dates would be... interesting. Physically they had a lot to hold up to. Sexually, if it got that far, they were going to have to be out of this world. And on a common connection level they’d need to be pretty spot on. Unfortunately, […]
  • The Arms Are Here To Stay – Part 2 of 2 February 6, 2018
    I spent the remainder of that Friday in the office, still wondering what the hell had happened in the last 20 or so hours, but mostly attempting to remain awake. I chose to work in the office lounge, on a comfy chair with my feet up on a foot rest and there were definite moments […]
