Endings…& Beginnings

I’m leaving the ranch.

For those of you who follow my Instagram feed, you know that for the past year I’ve lived at a peaceful little ranch (the road to the ranch is pictured in the photo here) out in the country that is almost too beautiful to be real. And you might be surprised to learn that I’m leaving, given how much affection I have for this place, this magical place, that saw so many ups » Read More

You Are Not Invisible

Sometimes I feel particularly invisible to the opposite sex. Kind of like Harry Potter tossed his magical Cloak of Invisibility around me when I wasn’t looking and then darted off to go do whatever it is Harry Potter is doing these days. (Of course, old Harry is a male so he probably didn’t see me in the first place!) But seriously…as much as the idea of having a super power appeals to me, I could » Read More

Why I’m Still Single: The Ugly Truth

Why do I SAY I’m still single?

A pithy, “Because I’m too fabulous to settle.”

A polite, “Because I’m waiting for God to bring me the right man.”

A peppy, “Because there are still things I’m meant to accomplish as a single woman!”

But the truth is…sometimes I think the reason I’m still single is because I’m inherently flawed. Bad. Ugly. Undeserving. Screwed up. Unlovable.

THIS is the underbelly of singleness. The dark side. Where the rubber meets the road. » Read More

Dash of Sass: Let’s Stop Trying to Be Right & Just Be Real

I’ve been in a bit of a creative slump lately that has definitely affected my writing and tweeting and posting. I’m not sure why, but every summer around this time, I hit a creative wall. And because I don’t really have anything brilliant to say, I stop saying anything at all. When I saw this beautifully perfect quote by Brian Andreas, it occurred to me that perhaps I don’t have to say anything brilliant. Or » Read More

Dash of Sass: 40 Days to Feeling Good

I’ve realized over these past few weeks (as I’ve been dealing with some challenges) that I’m not very nice to myself. I am kind to others, supportive of others, encouraging to others…but when it comes to myself, I can be really harsh and unforgiving and completely lacking in grace. Examples of negative self talk:
“You look terrible today.””You’re so weak. Why does something so stupid bother you?””You’re never going to be normal and happy, like everyone » Read More

Day 19: Life is Not a Movie

Today feels like a good day to pick up my 30-Day Blogging Challenge where I last left it. I promise I’m going to finish this thing one of these days, you guys!!!

Okay, so here is today’s question…

What is something about you that people would be surprised to learn?

I think something about me that people would be surprised to learn is that I don’t think I was ever in love with Mr. E.

Ten Lessons You Learn in Your 30’s

As most of you know, 2014 saw the release of my second book, I’ve Never Been to Vegas But My Luggage Has…which is essentially my life story.

As much as I love my first book, The Single Woman, (and I do love that book, with all my heart) #NeverBeenToVegas is and will always be particularly special to me. It is essentially my heart, my LIFE…poured out on pages for the world to see. And I never dreamed » Read More

Ten Reasons to Give Yourself Permission to Write Your Own Fairytale

My new book I’ve Never Been to Vegas But My Luggage Has: Mishaps & Miracles on the Road to Happily Ever After came out on March 11th…and I can honestly say I’ve never been prouder of anything I’ve written in my life. It’s bold. It’s raw. It’s REAL. It’s my story, uncensored. And I honestly think it’s a story that all women, single or not, will find glimpses of themselves in.

If I were an emoji, I’d be the Dancing Lady (you know, the one in the red dress who looks like she’s dancing the salsa?) right now…THAT’S how excited I am that us singles have an entire week in our honor!

As many of you know, I released my first published book a little over a month ago called The Single Woman: Life, Love, & a Dash of Sass. The book is the » Read More

You’re Invited to the Biggest Girls Night Out EVER!

  Arguably one of the most difficult days of the year for a single person is Valentine’s Day. Not so much because of the way WE view it or react to it, but because the way the rest of the world seems to react to it FOR us. The sympathetic looks. The pats on the head. The friends who chuckle as they refer to it as “Singles Awareness Day” aka “SAD,” and think they’ve » Read More
