Here’s Hoping I Can Keep My Emotions Together

I’m in Greenville and I’m at Walmart picking out the curtains and garbage bags for our new apartment. I’m in my own world as I take a look around the store. My dad calls me, but doesn’t leave a message while I’m chatting away with my husband about shower curtains. I know that if my…

Please Stop Saying Prince Charming Is Right Around The Corner

When I was single, I was so sick of people saying, “oh, it’s just not meant to be.” I’d cringe every time I’d hear someone mumble those damn words. I understand they were trying to make me feel better, but I just wanted to say shut the f**k up! It never made me feel at…

A Thanksgiving of Firsts

Little girls shouting on a balcony along with an older man, who I presume is their grandfather. They sound excited and cheerful on the day after Thanksgiving.  I continue to walk Ollie as the cool breeze blows my hair from side to side. I scrunch my eyes because of the win thinking about the holidays….

Most Women Want An Established Man

Most women want an established man, one who has his s*** together. The last guy you want is one who doesn’t know what he wants in life, is completely immature and still depends on mommy for everything. Correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t you prefer the man who is earning decent money over the guy who…

To The Women Who Call Themselves Ugly

Here’s The ugly truth, we actually listen. The other day, I read this status made from someone on my Facebook, “I might be ugly but at least I ain’t stupid…
