Penny

I am so beyond overjoyed right now! My cousin had her baby yesterday! She is absolutely beautiful. Penelope (Penny). She has the roundest little cheeks that you just want to pinch and the cutest little legs. She came a two days late from her due date. 7 lbs 14 oz and is 20 1/2 inches. I can’t wait to meet her. It will be so long from now, I won’t meet her until September, but I just can’t wait!

When my grandma saw her picture, she started tearing up saying how beautiful she is! Her great granddaughter. My family is just filled with women. I have thirteen cousins on my moms side, and there are only four boys. I have five nieces from that side of the family, no boys lol. That’s okay. More than okay, that’s amazing! My cousins are such strong women, I know they will raise such beautiful little girls to be empowered and independent as they were growing up.

It will be a crazy day though when one of my cousins or sisters have a boy. Or even me, but that won’t be for a long, long, long, long time lol.

Sorry for the random post, but I am just so happy for my cousin and I needed to write about it <3. Hope you all are having a beautiful day!

Until next time…

Have You Had Enough Wine?

The answer is always no. There is never enough wine, because it is so damn delicious. Now you know, JC Stewart.

Anyway, I came across this song on Instagram just scrolling through my newsfeed, and I am really obsessed with this singer. His voice is just great! He just seems so familiar, like I know who he is, but obviously I don’t because he is over seas in Ireland of course; because we don’t have enough singers with sexy accents coming out of the woodwork.

Last Night

I have to say, yesterday was a really great day.

I was really worried that I was going to have a low day, what with it being Valentine’s Day and it being the first time in four years that I was single during it. I was concerned that I was going to have a set back. That I was going to get sappy, think about old times and reminisce over something i don’t want anymore. Because that’s what over-thinker’s do. We overanalyzed every little thing that we do even when we know we have made the right decision for once.

But yesterday wasn’t like that. I spent the day at work, which was surprisingly relaxed, and then I went out to dinner with some friends and we just talked and laughed for three hours straight. The best part was, we didn’t feel the need to document the night either. None of us reached for our phones to take pictures, to go on social media or even to answer a text we received. It was just us

It was a really good night.

Then I got home around 9:30, sat down and wrote some for my story and then just watched a rom-com with my grandma (that part sounds super lame but I don’t care). In case anyone was wondering we watched Someone Like You. Cute movie.

I’m still waiting for the moment I panic and send myself down a spiral of crazy, but for last night, it was really peaceful. And I am so beyond grateful for that. I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day yesterday.

Until next time…

That’s Not What’s Hard…

Love is not what is unattainable
What is unattainable is staying the same
Love isn’t something that is hard to get, or hard to earn
What is hard to get and earn is changing together for the better
Love comes with a price
The price is accepting the one you love for their flaws
For their mistakes
For their problems
Not many can do that
Falling in love is not what is hard

Staying in love is.

Why Do We Do It?

How is it that some of the most intelligent and beautiful women let themselves be belittled and used just to feel desired? Why do we allow ourselves to become less so that we can feel wanted? When did we start doing less so that our loved one can feel like more? Why do we do it? Why is the most important thing in the world to be loved? Continue reading “Why Do We Do It?”

We Live for Love

Hello all!

I had an interesting thought today, nothing unique or different. Nothing that hasn’t been spoken, or written, or sung. Of course, it’s about love. As of late, I let go of a love in my life. It hasn’t been easy, and it probably won’t be okay for a while, but I know in my heart I did the right thing. It hasn’t been good between us for a long time, I just had been the one to face it head-on. I took the step that neither of us wanted to take because we had gotten comfortable. But it wasn’t right anymore.  Continue reading “We Live for Love”

Soulmate

Soulmate’s.. real or not real?

I don’t think I believe in soul mates to the sense that there is one person out there to complete me. What does that mean anyway? That I am not enough? That I’m not complete without a significant other by my side? It’s a lot of pressure to put on a person if you ask me. A guy is supposed to fit every specification that I have set for them? One guy is supposed to do all of that? Seems impossible, and it’s set every relationship up for failure if you ask me.
