on dating: i’m exhausted! where is he?!

On December 30th of last year my boyfriend of one year told me that we had to break up (our one-year anniversary was the day before). He didn’t see a future for us, not one in which we stayed together, got married one day and had babies. He didn’t see any of the things that I did.

what i’m watching: ‘fast n’ loud’ is the only car show for me

I feel compelled to share with you the television programming I have been enjoying lately:

Fast N’ Loud (Discovery): Everyone assumes that because I like NASCAR that I must be a “car person” and I’m not, at least not in the traditional sense.

When I was in kindergarten my mom would drive me to school every morning and I would cry as we got closer and closer to the school. I really didn’t want to go to class and it’s something I vividly remember. That anxiety.


getting older, moving and visualizing a life with nascar

Last Friday was my birthday. I turned 32 and I’m OK with it, I guess. Not like I have a choice about in the matter. I’m embracing it. There are a lot of numbers left until I get to 40 so I’m looking at that as a positive. :)


the importance of choosing a great home

Where you live is very important. It’s always been a big deal to me for a few different reasons.

The first stems from my mom. My mom was a single parent raising two daughters and for her where we lived was a top priority because she wanted us to be safe above all else. While supporting three people on one salary is hard, my mom did everything she could to give us the best.

So what do you think of the new site? I’m digging it.

The following is something I wrote in my personal blog and I’m repurposing it here since my new “format” includes personal things, so basically my life. I thought that this would be a great place to start since it speaks to a big part of who I am and where my mind has been as of late.
