another one bites the dust.

In my last post, I wrote, "This past year (with guys) has been interesting, yet disappointing."  There have been no truer words spoken by yours truly than these.  Beginning with an escapade last winter, my life has been composed of "Nice to meet you" introductions at the bar to "You are a really good person, … Continue reading another one bites the dust.

i don’t know what i’ve done or if i like what i’ve begun. but something told me to run and honey, you know me it’s all or none.

Nearly three months ago I wrote a post after being inspired by the song, Where I Stood (by Missy Higgins).  The title of that post was a few of the song's lines that happened to resonate with me at a time when I found comfort in the context.  And now, three months later, I find myself … Continue reading i don’t know what i’ve done or if i like what i’ve begun. but something told me to run and honey, you know me it’s all or none.

two single ladies, two bottles of wine, one rooftop, and a whole lot to talk about.

Last night my friend, Sadie, and I toasted our glasses of wine to some good quality girl time on a rooftop overlooking downtown Chicago.  Two single twentysomethings deciding to escape the stresses of everyday life thru wine & friend therapy.  With a cool breeze, sporadic raindrops, and the always enjoyable Chicago skyline, Sadie and I found ourselves in an easy-flowing … Continue reading two single ladies, two bottles of wine, one rooftop, and a whole lot to talk about.

everybody says they’ll never fall again, but everybody does.

As little girls we begin our forever quest to Find Love.  We go to bed dreaming of Prince Charming waking us up with His Kiss and taking us away to Happily Ever After.  Brainwashed by fairy tales and romantic comedies throughout our rose-tinted adolescence, we find ourselves infatuated with the Idea of Love.  Our Imagination fools us … Continue reading everybody says they’ll never fall again, but everybody does.

one more unfinished song

If I run, will you run after me? If I walk,  will you wait patiently? If I fall, will you have sympathy? If I run, if I run, will you run after me? If I Run by The Harters  In the land before blogs there were diaries, or journals as we prefer to call them.  If I was a betting … Continue reading one more unfinished song

i’m not a princess. this ain’t a fairy tale.

~ Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale. ~   One of my little BFFs, Michella, asked me yesterday if there was a boy (in my life), to which I gave a blushing "Maybe... Kinda...I don't know...I hope so" response.  The 7-year old (going on … Continue reading i’m not a princess. this ain’t a fairy tale.

even a kiss on new year’s eve isn’t ‘just a kiss’.

Some people say that "it's just a kiss", and as you get older you'll mostly hear "it's only sex" and/or "marriage is just a piece of paper".  Do me a favor: Don't believe these things.  If 'a kiss is just a kiss', then why do you sometimes find yourself with weak knees and butterflies in your stomach?  Explain that, cynics!  … Continue reading even a kiss on new year’s eve isn’t ‘just a kiss’.

i’m wonderstruck. i’ll spend forever wondering if you know, i was enchanted to meet you.

With my green OU traveler's mug next to me, I sit here ready to divulge into my mind: the past, present, future, and my imagination.  Since the never-ending Chicago Windstorm of 2010 knocked out my Internet last night, preventing me from blogging therapy, I yearn to have that happen now.  And 15 minute work break begins now... ...as I hit PLAY … Continue reading i’m wonderstruck. i’ll spend forever wondering if you know, i was enchanted to meet you.

unsent love letter mix tape: track 8

The post I wrote on Sunday, October 10th will explain the ideas behind the Unsent Love Letter Mix Tape series, and if it still doesn’t make sense to you, well then, at least it makes sense to me.  The writer.  The blogger.  The girl behind the computer.  Call me what you will but these are … Continue reading unsent love letter mix tape: track 8
