{Divorced Life Dating} Light Up The Room

There are moments where I have thought to myself “maybe your relationships fail because you are incapable of deeply loving someone.” That thought is clearly irrational, yet my track record is not. I was married at 25, divorced by 27, engaged again at 29 and lost my fiancé at 30. Over the past four years … Continue reading

{Hearts On 22} Five Borrowed Years

I honestly cannot believe that it’s been five years. It seems just like yesterday when I set out to work oblivious to what this day would hold. I still remember what I wore and that I was upset because I forgot to buy creamer the night before. It was a free jeans day and I … Continue reading

{Divorced Life Dating} Go For The One Who Waits For You

“People build up walls, not to keep others out, but to see who cares enough to break them down. “ Relationships, are my down fall and I always go for the man I can’t have, not the one I can’t live without. I am always the chaser never the chased. I try to force something … Continue reading

{PERSPECTIVE} 10 Years of Have Bear Will Travel

{Whipstaff Ranch & Rescue} Cullen’s Story

In June 2010 I walked away from my marriage with a little English Pointer named Freckles by my side. Freckles is a shy energetic rambunctious little soul and she was never meant for apartment life. She needed a yard, a place to run, and a 5-year-old boy to chase her around. I knew what Freckles … Continue reading

{Divorced Life} Standing on the Other Side

As I charted my future on vision boards, I never once added DIVORCE to the grand plan. Then again I never thought I’d fall in love and get married. At 22 I was focused on finding my way to law school and plotting to change the world. All it took was his brown eyes looking … Continue reading
