Taking A Break For Love

Heart Shaped Bacon Glasses

It was a great date. The kind you walk away from with hope and anticipation for a second. The conversation was easy, not to mention I found him ridiculously attractive – but I couldn’t really tell if he was feeling me as much as I was him. He walked me to my car after. I …

Less Than Three With Bacon

This April will mark my five year anniversary as a single mom, and I’d like to think I’ve come a long way (baby)  since I was first delivered the news that my ex was leaving me for another woman. At the time it was devastating to hear. Honestly I didn’t even know how the hell …

Don’t Settle For Love. Be Amazing Instead.

Be Amazing With Bacon

I often wonder, “Why not me?” I witness people in love each and every day. They’ve settled down. They lean on each other and have found a way to make the pieces fit. Yesterday a picture popped up on my Facebook timeline of a woman who had just gotten engaged. She was showing off her …

When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures.

Bacon Gifts

I deleted my OKCupid account this evening in an attempt to be less reckless – this is after recently trying to date (I use the term loosely) two different men I met on the online dating site. One was the guy I talked about in my last blog post, that seemed like he could be …
