    Blame My Parents :)

    While I was growing up I often saw Dad bring Mom flowers or a cheesecake for no reason but to see her face light up. And that would make him happy.Mom would do the same to Dad be it a note she'd slip in his lunch or one of his favorite desserts which he'd reluctantly share with...

    I believe that true love still exists.

    I searched for it my entire life making too many mistakes along the way. Never found the right one because I was too busy looking at the wrong ones. I do not place blame squarely upon them, more so, I blame society. This society where everyone has become superficial, tainted by...

    The Perfect 4th Of July (my Scottish Lover)

    It was a very warm 4th of July. The gentle winds that always blew in the valley swept over me as I sat under a giant oak tree. With the rivers edge only a eight feet away, I sat staring at the water flowing down stream. I was thinking of how I was going to continue on....Marriage...

    Chocolate Sins

    I've pretty much accepted

    that I'm most likely never going to be someone's first choice. In a way I've come to terms with the fact I may never find someone and a small part of me is okay with that. Just a small part.
