About myself... well, that's tricky I've spent the last year and a half finding myself and the journey is just beginning. It's been a wild ride that gets better by the day.
I have two sweet little kiddos and I own a small art and craft shop. I try to keep it simple when I can and take the time to enjoy life.
My guilty pleasures are reality TV (like project runway, the apprentice, top chef, etc), trying new foods, and Pinterest.
I hope to meet some of you sometime! :)

The most stressful thing about Christmas is, after having kids, I no longer have any idea what normal people want for gifts! I hate trying to figure out what to get my mom and dad. :(

Happy Thanksgiving all!
I am thankful for a girlfriend, mother, and kids who practice open communication daily.

Many of you know I own a second-hand art and craft supply store. Part of what I do is fix materials people have given up on so others can use them.
Often this comes in the way of untangling string and yarn. Over the last two years I have done this and it has proven to be very therapeutic and inspiring. I have come up with this analogy to life:

It was a year ago this weekend that I went on my first date with a woman.
I was so excited and so nervous. I warned her I wasn't comfortable holding her hand in public and she smiled and told me to take my time. I think all the blood in my body was either in my face or somewhere lower. ;)
We ate at the aristocrat then she took me to my first gay bar where we sat and chatted in the pool room. A group of women came in and after a bit one of them came over and asked how long we had been together. Because we looked so into each other, she thought it must be a new relationship. She told us we looked cute together.
Before we left, we slipped out onto the balcony and enjoyed a sweet and wonderful kiss.
It was quite a magical night and it has been a wonderful year!

Have you ever watched someone slip away with no idea of how to help them and then come to the point where you decide the only thing you can do is let them go?

Self-preservation is hard on the soul.
