As kids we are always told to “dream big,” “go for it,” “you can do whatever you want!” Looking back I can’t help but wonder what that actually meant. Career? Travel? Personal Life? All of it? Did I need to pick one area to go for? Growing up I recall hearing things such as, “when … Continue reading No One Told Me.
Well, I did it. I survived the first year of being single. My first Valentines Day, first birthday, first wedding anniversary, first Thanksgiving, first Christmas, first New Years and finally my first year anniversary of walking out on the life I knew and loved. I did it! Wahoo, my year of firsts was over! High … Continue reading I Was In The Hospital & Not A Hot Doc In Sight!
Happy New Year!!! After being sad during my first single Christmas, I was determined to make the most out of New Year's Eve. In reality, I hate New Year's Eve, it is never that great and it is always overhyped and then a huge letdown. I had convinced myself this year would be different.

While I was relaxing, I was also … Continue reading All I Knew Was Complicated.

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.
