Wedding Planning is for the Birds


If anyone really, really knows me, I sincerely don’t like being the center of attention.  I like to meander through the crowd getting to know people one on one.  Shoot, I always turn beet red when people start singing “Happy Birthday” to me.  Being put right in the spotlight is not really my thing.  So what does that say for…

There is an underlying reason for wanting that control.  Whether a guy…

Is the Perfect Man Out There?


Recently, the Comedian went on a radio show (shout out to Central Florida Live).  Of course I was intently listening in on the broadcast as any proud girlfriend should.  Towards the end of the program, they brought up something very interesting.  Are women’s standards way too high?  Now, I started to think, are women’s standards too high, like for real?…

Opposites DO attract!


So I was talking to the Comedian last night and, for whatever reason, it finally dawned on me that we had a lot less in common that I thought.  It’s not a bad thing at all but I realized that over the last 2 1/2 years, I didn’t see what those differences were. It’s apparent that I’m a social butterfly.…
