Dating

Shh! We’re on a make-out!

Date numéro trois = très success!

My français = très bon!

Oh, hi! So Philly Cheese Steak (btw, I’m apparently not the first person who’s called him this) and I went on our third date last night. Our second date, last Friday, was another winner. We went for Thai food at my fave place, followed by a walk along the canal, and capped things off with BeaverTails by the lake. I think most of you know by now I’m not being dirty when I say that. They’re actual things you can eat. Heavenly, I tell you.

Opa!

So…I went on a date last night. A really, REALLY great one. And now I’m gonna tell you about it!

Philippe (or Phil, or Bill…more on that shortly) and I “met” on OkCupid and chatted back and forth for a little over a week. He seemed like a gentlemanly kind of guy, very sweet and responsive, but not too clingy. He asked me if I liked Greek food (hell yeah!) and invited me to one of his favourite places for dinner.

Life

Just a little bit of pixie dust!

Three, two, one, jump!

My friends, this is the year for checking items off my Bucket List! I spent a lot of last year in a fog, after losing Mom, then I realized that I’m not just living life for myself anymore; I’m living it for both of us. That means being a little bolder, a little braver, and a whole lot more badass.

It also means jumping out of an airplane…from over 13,000 feet in the air.

Weekend Writing Warriors #36!

Good morning! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers out there. As most of you know, I lost my mother in February, 2016. I had a dream about her last night. Sometimes I think she knows when I need her the most. I always feel her spirit, but when I dream about her, it’s like she’s still here. Today’s Steeped in Love snippet is dedicated to her and all of the other beautiful mothers out there, whether on earth or in heaven.

Cupid, draw back your bow….

Well, my friends, I’ve officially deleted my Tinder profile. Yes. It’s true. I’ll let you all digest that for a moment.

Don’t fret, though, because I haven’t given up on the dating scene altogether. I’m just exploring other options. My latest exploration…OkCupid. It’s an app that has the swipe left or right feature as well, but this one encourages more in-depth bios, and it allows all users to send each other messages. Essentially, you message anyone who tickles your fancy.

In other words, you end up with eleventy billion messages from weirdos you want nothing to do with. Now, since I’m a generous person, I’ve decided to share some of those conversation starters with you. The magnificent Maggie Wells, author extraordinaire, will be providing her always-entertaining commentary. Poor guys never stood a chance. Ready? Here we go!
