Miscellany Monday {relationship edition}

Well hello, Monday. Fancy to see you again so soon.
How was your weekend kids?!
Mine went by super duper quickly - anyone else have this problem?!

The lovely thing about today is that we have Miscellany Monday {relationship edition} to look forward to!
Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
Shall we...

1. Being in my late twenties, trying to find time to a challenge, to say the least. Just sayin.

2. Part of me in so envious of Ashley on the Bachelorette. It's so simple, right now. You have 25 dudes vying for your attention - wanting to be with you. {maybe not for the right reasons, but thats beside the point} It'd be nice to have 25 guys in front of you and for them to be continually trying to prove themselves to you. Yes, it'd be difficult making decisions as to who stays and goes - but the hard part is done for you. Meeting them. Finding them. {Whether or not it works out for her in the end is a different story entirely ;)}

3. I think I'm old fashioned in my way of thinking with dating. I want a guy to find me. I want him to pursue me. I want him take me to dinner. I want him to kiss me good night. I want him to call {yes, call not text *gasp*} me the next day and say he had a really nice time and wants to see me again soon. {I realize that's not how it works always. I realize that's not how I work sometimes. But it's nice to imagine.*sigh*}

4. It's such a good feeling to be able to tell someone who was a huge part of your life for awhile that you are genuinely happy for them and so proud of them.

5. I think it's shitty {excuse my language} when you can't be civil with an ex. I realize that perhaps the parting ways weren't the best - but why must we forget that at one point this person did mean the world to you... so why be nasty? Life is too short, ya know? By this time in our lives we are all adults. Things happen, people cry, but eventually life goes on. There's no reason that two grown adults can't be nice to each other whether they parted on good or bad terms. I'm not saying you should be best friends with all of yours exes, of course not. That's crazy talk. But you should still be able to be in the same room without killing each other.

6. I'm not jaded or bitter when it comes to relationships. I used to be. But I've realized that people get hurt, lessons are learned, but thats no reason you can't have fun along the way. Each guy I've dated was a part of my life for a reason - they taught me something about life, love, or myself. And I've realized that now. And I'll be enternally grateful to them for that.

Hope y'all have an amazing day!

Love always.


  1. Yes, I totally agree with you. Life is too short to be nasty and bitter over things (like broken relationships). Regarding a guy finding you... hmm. I believe in that too. Difficult, but I really believe that you will meet HIM when you stop looking. That's the bitter truth... I found your blog at the Miscellany Monday hop and really like it!

  2. Oh lady, I kept saying, "here, here!" to your post...long story short (though the full excruciating step-by-step is on my blog...) I was left last year by my husband of 4 years, together for ten. OUT.OF.THE.BLUE. And here is the crazy part - I am married now and moving to Istanbul, Turkey in a little over a month with my new Turkish husband. Yea. Seriously. So, take it from me that somehow, things happen when you have no idea what the hell is going on. Seriously, this post speaks volumes. Kudos to you. I look forward to reading more about you in posts to come!
    Best, Al

  3. I am a huge believer of the man pursuing you! It makes you feel so loved and needed and then you know it's not you trying to manipulate him into being with you! So yes, I will find you a Wisconsin boy that believes that too :)

  4. Way to go, girl! Wait for that man to search YOU out and set your standards high! You deserve the best and any man would be lucky to be with you.
    I wish Ashley on the Bachelorette the best, hoping she can find true love on the show. But check out the stats of couples that STAY together and have a happy marriage! Reality isn't reality on TV. A majority of those guys are searching for something besides love. Perhaps fame, celebrity status, business promotion (BENTLEY!)
    I loved this post! Thanks for being open and transparent! :)


Leaving me some love?! Why thank you!!
