I love nature and when I’m able to get some exercise, listen to the birds chirping and observe some BEAUTIFUL scenery, I’m a happy camper. My husband planned a picnic at the SC Botanical Garden in Clemson. Beforehand, we tried a local coffee shop called “All in” Coffee Shop that served authentic handmade coffee beverages and also breakfast items. Let’s chat about what we ordered. … Continue reading Want an Easy Date Idea? Here it is…
I’m not an emotional person, so if I cry, it means I’m either in a lot of pain or something has hit me hard. Three years ago, when my then-boyfriend and I made the decision to move to Tennessee, leaving us 800+ miles away from family and friends, all I could do was cry. I missed my folks, brothers and friends simply because before I … Continue reading Memories, Please Leave Before I Cry
Dear Best Friend, I miss the summer we swore off men. Just the two of us spent time exploring all the niceties of Pennsylvania. We had just broken up with our boyfriends and wanted to just chill.

If I were to think about how I won’t see my family or friends for a … Continue reading Making A Change In Your Life Isn’t Always A Bad Thing

This is true when you break up with someone. Instead of remembering the bad times, you tend to think of the fun moments you shared. Your mind plays tricks on you and seems as … Continue reading Don’t Chase Memories
I’m standing in the kitchen washing the dishes and then, bang, all of a sudden a memory re-enters my mind. My two friends & I are sitting at the Bell Tower at Temple studying for our English class. One of my gals is naming concepts from our class. Then, my other friend answers. I’m a bit distracted & I haven’t studied yet, so I just … Continue reading I just hate the memories.
A group of us hung out last Friday night. He invited me out. I haven’t hung out with him in a while, so I figured I’d tag along to one of these “Meet-up” groups. Why not? There’s still something there. I don’t believe it’s technically romantic, but I feel it. He flirts with me mostly, but at times, I do flirt back. It’s all in fun. He … Continue reading Push those thoughts out of mind, out of sight.
