I Told You I Was Strong & Independent. I Lied.

It hit me yesterday that I talk regularly about how strong and independent I am as a single (and fabulous) woman…

The message in church yesterday was about singleness and how our contentment can only be found in God, not in the safety of marriage or the independence of single life (Thank you, Pastor Trevor Atwood, for BRINGING IT). And as I sat there and listened and let the » Read More

We Are All…The Single Woman

The following is an excerpt from my book The Single Woman: Life, Love, & a Dash of Sass:

Everyone seems to want to meddle in the life of the woman who refuses to settle; setting her up on » Read More

Taken from Man’s McRib

I stumbled across an article today about the recent announcement that apparently, the majority of people on the planet have been waiting for with baited breath. No, not the news that Prince William is finally putting a ring on Kate Middleton…but that the most sought-after, lusted for, and desired sandwich on the face of the earth is…dum dum dum…back on the market! The McRib sandwich from McDonald’s is now appearing on menus once again for » Read More

Lessons learned along the Yellow Brick Road

You usually never know life’s unforgettable moments are, in fact, unforgettable, until the moment has passed. The night you simply went with your friends to the same place you’d been going for years to grab dinner; except this time, you met someone that would literally change the course of your life. The day you told the boy you had been in love with for four years that you had been in love with him for » Read More
