My Own Personal Fairytale

My Own Personal Fairytale

Wowwee!! What a crazy, unbelievable, fantastical, magical, roller-coaster of a year it’s been for me. 

It all started last August, when, after three years of trying to do the online dating thing and being supremely unsuccessful, something finally happened – a guy chatted with me on the app. 

Now, that in itself wasn’t unusual. I’ve had lots of random chats on various apps over the years. What was unusual about this time was that…. We continued chatting! 

We moved from the app to our phone numbers pretty quickly, and then after a week of some great back and forth, we had our first date. 

Flash forward to now…

We’re married and going to have our first child!!!

June is here and that means sun, heat, and mosquitos—oh my!

To tell the truth (because apparently that’s going to be a thing on my blog)… I Hate the summer.

Well, that’s not entirely accurate. I loved having summers off from school. I love the longer days and all the growing things. But I abso-fucking-lutely Hate the Heat. (And I’m not that big a fan of the sun in general, either.)

I’d much, much rather live in a colder climate and deal with snow, ice, and live under a million blankets than dealing with the high temperatures and dry lands. And this summer has already been scorching! It hit over 100º two days in a row, where I live in Colorado. In June.

That’s not right.

But there’s hope out there still. With this month, comes the turning of the wheel. The Wheel of the Year that is.

Why I write… and other confessions

Dun-dun-dun DA!!!

Welcome to my new website and first blog post!

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve last blogged (over 5 years, in fact). I’m sure it’ll come back to me, just like riding a bike. Ha! Just kidding, I haven’t ridden a bike in over 20 years. But that’s enough stalling… time to get to it.

What you’re all hear to read about… Why I write.

Boy, that’s a big question! I could tell you about how I started writing short story books in 2nd grade. Or how I was published in the local newspaper in 6th grade with an article I wrote about my school. Or, maybe, I could tell you the story of how my first romance came to life one spring day in Ireland. Well, I'll tell you all those stories at some point but for now let me just say...
