Time

I haven’t been emotionally available lately in regards to my writing. I am sorry I haven’t been as I know some of my readers have been checking back to the site often. I let my emotions get the best of me and I hid from it, I pretended the site didn’t exist and I ignored you all and myself and for that I am sorry. I have since come to terms and smartened up and took care of the issue that was bothering me. Of course, this COVID pandemic did not help either, although it should have been the time that I was writing the most. I found myself hurting...

Finding Love After 40 Most people think that by the time you reach 40 you should already be successful, have a house and kids and a husband or wife and maybe you did and maybe you do and maybe you thought you had it all but it didn’t work out.

Becoming a Lesbian Mom

As a little girl I always knew I was different but growing up in the 80’s and early 90’s I didn’t know anyone that was ‘gay’. If anything, unfortunately, the ‘gay’ people I did know weren’t treated very well. I went through junior high and high school crushing on all kinds of girls but always dating a boy. I hid everything about me for as long as I could. I had a baby when I was 18 Fast forward a few decades and a few broken hearts and in 2012 I married a woman. The marriage happened quickly, as lesbians...
