Last First Kiss
Every girl wants that first kiss to be magical.  The moon is full, the stars are aligned, and Prince Charming is standing in front of you.  A soft breeze blows your hair softly back from your face as he reaches up to hold your cheek lovingly in his hand.  H...

I love being single. 
Almost everything about it brings peace and joy to my world.  Not only can I stretch out in bed, but I don’t

Dance Partners
I've had three dance partners in my life, each so very different. The first was my father.  When I was twelve, our church held a Daddy Daughter Dance in which the leaders called out dances the fathers were supposed to teach their daughters.  Thank heavens m...

For those of you who missed it - my birthday was last Tuesday.  It was a fairly quiet affair.  My son and I had dinner at the local Mongolian Grill and my mother fought traffic just so she could give me a birthday hug.  I got a couple of gifts at work, but ...
