Speakeasy

It was 1929 in Chicago and Hal Capone had just been murdered, and one of us did it!


My friends and I all got together for a murder mystery dinner, where we were all actors.



The whole night was hysterically funny, and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

Simplicity of Home








I am enjoying the simplicity of my current life. 
Breathing in the small details everyday that make my life so special.

Singleness Season: Goals


This whole being single thing is proving to be way more difficult than I imagined. I have been thrown for a loop already. My mantra was going strong until:

This guy ran in and jumped into my life.

Me being a keeper of promises, deemed that I would stick to my single lane road for six months no matter what. So this man, who I want to continue to get to know was told of my journey. The gentleness and patience he is showing, in understanding my situation, means that he is staying at arms length. So, how to build a friendship and encourage each other to live more for the Lord without daily communication?

 46¢ at a time.

Oh yeah old school pen pals. We are trying to keep the dying industry alive. It will be an interesting journey to say the very least. However, my heart is ultimately focused on myself and pursuing God during this wonderful opportunity to grow.

Choices







Doubt, Smile, Day Dream, Whine, Be Angry.
They are all are things that we choose to do.
Each choice we make weaves together to build our personalities and character.

Happiness is a choice.
Loving someone is a choice.
Worrying is a choice.

It is hard sometimes, when we get caught up in the emotion that fills us daily to step back and actually think. You will never be able to control anybody's actions, but you always have a choice on how you react.

Over these past few months, I have been constantly testing myself, measuring and weighing the big life choices that I was and am making. However, I think the one choice that I have been the most grateful of is living the life that God wants me to live and just being happy!

Take an active stand to capture your thoughts and make wise choices!

Boyfriends

Everything in life is a journey.

For me, most of my journey has involved a male counterpart, my boyfriends of ghost past so to speak. And each and everyone of them has played a part of who I am today and encompasses what I am looking for in my future partner in crime love.

JC- My first true love. He was by far the most romantic of the bunch! His rose petal entrances and notes simply could not be topped. His love for me was real and true with romance spilling at the seams.

BE- Oh goodness was he a blast! His energy and excitement for life was amazing. Always wanting to push everything to the top, to the next level. He loves living.

CC- His soft spirit and outdoor nature drew me to him. The peace that he brings with him is outstanding. Confidently helping others is always his goal.

TP- Genuine authentic lover of life and family. He was fabulous with children and had a heart for those that he loved. Small community driven and wants nothing but the best.

TD- He knows his stuff. The business mind and wheeling and dealing. He is drawn to connect with people for the love of the game. He knows what it takes to get things done.

GG- Lover of the Lord. He constantly strives to live up to the perfect will of the Lord. His exuberance for life and his dependance on God is astounding. Wanting to be a better man every day.

The qualities that these men have shone to me, make me so incredibly happy! Each one in their own separate ways has shown me what I desire to have in my perfect for me mate.

Romance
Energy
Peace
Family Man
Get it done attitute
Lover of the Lord

I can't wait to see what/who the light will be at the end of the tunnel, but I am thankful that I am getting to spend this time focusing on God and myself during this singleness season.

Moving from Rome

Today, I am leaving the town that has been my home for the past seven years.
I am leaving the first house that I purchased and so many more memories.
Time to move on to a new adventure!
