    For as long as I can remember I have always had

    boys chasing after me. My first kiss happened in first grade with a boy named Joe on the top on my playground set. Before I moved away a boy named Garrett (my other boyfriend in first grade) also asked me to marry him as he handed me a mood ring. The love of a child is nothing...

    I've never had a lover.

    I want someone to accept me for who I am. To be open with me. To let the past all be in the past. To tell me I'm worth the fight for. To make me feel wanted. Someone who would go the distance to make me smile. Binge on Netflix, food, and cuddling/spooning. To be adorkable with...

    Yeah.. I really do..

    Not exactly lucky in love, but, in some respects, I have been very lucky.  I have a son that has always loved me unconditionally and has never tried to change me or control me.  His love is the actually only one true love I have ever felt was unconditional.  Well besides my...

    I've had very few relationships,

    but there seems to be a running theme with all of them, i'm kept a secret. No one knew about me, i was kept away from their lives, and never publicly out with them..i wasn't the other woman, they were free to be with me but its like they were ashamed of me.

    I don't want to break your heart. It scares me so much that I could be falling in love with you. What if I could never be with you? What if I disappoint you? You've been everywhere, done so many things and here I am green and open. I've never been so willing to give someone ALL...

    How To Cook A Husband

    I collect books from the early 1800's into the early 1900's. I came across this gem in a book dated 1892. It is an illustrated New England Jeweller with newspaper articles glued into it by its owner. Please relish this gem from that era. A good many husbands are spoiled by...

    Seriously, whenever I'm with you,

    things are so much easier. It's like I'm free with you, and then you or I have to leave, everything comes back to ****. Sometimes I just wish you could hug me and hug me an tell me everything will be okay. Because for that moment, it will.
