After my October 8th burning ceremony, I felt a bit better. It is amazing what a little pyro- therapy can do for the soul. I decided to take that “better” feeling, slow down and reflect on what had happened the last nine months. I first turned to Gina and Lisa for a girl’s sushi night. … Continue reading Speed Therapy.
October 8, 2012 I woke that day feeling like I had an elephant was sitting on my chest. As if Monday mornings weren’t bad enough, I knew this one would be even worse. Today was, excuse me, would have been, my one-year wedding anniversary. Ideally, on this day in a woman’s life, she may … Continue reading Would Be One Year.
After another incredible, yet over the top, evening with Sam and I was craving some normalcy. I love grand gestures and fun adventures but at the end of the day, I am a girl that was raised on a cattle ranch in Kansas. I want to be in a relationship with someone who has some … Continue reading Recycling Is Not Always A Good Idea.
Once Sam and I were back in LA I decided that if I didn’t tell anyone about my “incident” then it didn’t really happen. Yep, that theory seemed rational to me just as it does most 5-year-olds. So naturally, I told no one- literally NO ONE. It didn’t even occur to me, that stuffing things … Continue reading Roller Coaster.
When Sam and I got back to the resort we decided that a massage would be the perfect way to end our day, and we were right. After our massage, we went back to the villa and opened a bottle of wine, took a dip in our private pool, and sat on the deck watching … Continue reading Keylee or Joan?
The next morning I woke up from a sleep so deep that for a moment I wasn’t sure where I was. As I blinked my eyes open it was like a dream; huge four poster bed, white linen everywhere, the sun peaking in the wooden pocket doors and the smell of the ocean filling in … Continue reading Heaven Found.
The next day my eyes popped open early, no jet lag and no hangover from the Don Julio 1942- clearly the excitement had taken over. I could hear Sam was awake in the next room, so I splashed some water on my face, got the sleep out of my eyes, brushed my hair, curled my eyelashes and … Continue reading Pretty Woman, Without Being A Hooker.
As the driver sped down LaCienga Blvd., I asked him this question, “Sir, can you at least tell me what airline you are taking me too?” “No ma’am, not yet. Someone has gone to great lengths to surprise you, haven’t they?” he answered. What? I thought, how rude! As I sat in the back seat … Continue reading The Real Surprise.
I woke up the next morning feeling great; I jumped out of bed and got ready for work. Though our office was very small, it was rare when I didn’t get ‘dressed’ for work. I put on a dress, pair of heels, my face and headed out the door. We were at the start of … Continue reading Such Bullshit.
Being back in LA was a much more difficult than I had expected. Work was crazy, I had about 100 hours worth of things to catch up on in the next two days, I was fighting jet lag, and to top it off I still the ten plus unanswered voicemails from my lawyer, every time … Continue reading Divorce Court Sucks.
