The Divorce Decision

The Divorce Decision

My 17th wedding anniversary is on Sunday. Well, it would be my 17th if I hadn’t gotten divorced. No. Instead, ten years ago, at this time, I was in the painful realm of trying to figure out if I wanted to stay married to my husband, the father of my two children who were then...

A 35 Mile Bike Ride (Or How I Almost Killed My Husband)

I like trying new things. New restaurants. New hotels. Even a new sex toy. But the experience isn’t always how I imagined it would be. The service could be bad. The towels might be thin.

Visiting Las Vegas: Hooker Heels And Hiking

I love Las Vegas.Yeah, I know. It’s kind of odd. But it’s not what you think. I’m not out there clubbing, stumbling around in hooker heels and dresses that would fit my 12 year-old daughter. I have fun watching those that do. But that’s about as close as I get. As I’ve shared on here...
