real talk tuesday: insecure partners

Real Talk Tuesday is my own personal commentary on whatever the topic. Opinions are my own, and just that– opinions. Feel free to agree or disagree! RTTs are not meant to be offensive in any way, and I hope they aren’t, but, you know, just in case! Haha. I know somebody.  Who’s dating somebody.  Unfortunately […]

real talk tuesday: living together before marriage

Happy Tuesday!  Over here in Boston we are, once again, staring down the barrel of another nor’easter.  Yep, we hadn’t had one all winter, and now we’re anticipating the second in the same week.  But this time, I guess Wisconsin is getting a blizzard dumped on them as well so… maybe Florida is the right […]

four years & counting.

Happy four year anniversary to my now-husband Anthony​!  It feels like only yesterday that I had such a giant crush on my cousin’s friend, that I was taking a cold shower one night during the infamous October storm so that I wouldn’t look completely disgusting when I went over to your house to play scrabble, […]

they can’t help it.

You know how men tend to think women are overly emotional,  we overreact,  the bad moods spring out of nowhere, etc?  And sure, 90% of the time, with 99.9% of women, it’s probably true? Well, I also realized something this morning while sort of bickering with Anthony about what we were going to do today. […]
