Greetings, dear ones!


Let's just get right to the nitty gritty: Singlehood can be hard. Especially, when it seems that everyone and their three Welsh Corgis are in relationships, getting married, having children....


Don't get me wrong, I love kids! I just don't think I'm ready for a permanent one right now. And that's kinda how I feel about a relationship. Well, somedays. Other days, I lay in bed watching While You Were Sleeping or The Proposal or any romantic movie with Sandra Bullock (Except The Lakehouse. What was that?!) and I think/sob into my pillow, "Why can't that be my life?"

The simple answer to that is I'm not brave enough to jump onto railroad tracks to save a man, I'm not cool enough to be from Canada, and nowhere near being as awesome as the one and only SB! SO, there you have it. The three reasons I'm single.

Just kidding! But, I do think Hollywood has created an image that little girls who became women who at heart are still little girls have a hard time replacing. This idea that the perfect relationship is action packed and dangerous and devious and explosively dynamic, yet realllllly easy- it's damaging! These are unfair expectations that Disney and Warner Bros. have ingrained in our impressionable hearts.

Alright, alright. I'm not hating on anyone. I just think we need to be more real with each other. So, that's what this is  going to be about. Being real and raw and honest and completely vulnerable.

Singlehood can be hard. It can also be easy, wonderful, disappointing, magical, exciting, boring, crazy, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.  It's an adventure, and I don't know what the end of my movie will look like.   Will I make it out alive? Will I save the world one blog at a time?! Probs not. Buuuuut, I'm way excited to find out!
