9 year blogging

In 2012 I was happily married living in San Diego, working part time as a pre-school teacher and nanny. Hoping to soon become a stay at home mom.

Now in 202, living in Denver, I've just started on a new career path in HR. Taking the bus to work, in my 5th apartment and 3rd alone. One year and two months single, for the first time ever! And trying to eat breakfast before 8AM. I think that is the toughest thing right now. LOL

Never in 2012 did I think that I could be as happy as I am now. Just so truly happy with who I am and where I'm going. Genuinely proud of myself and the path I am on in life. It took a lot of work and so many things contributed to the happiest place on earth, that I am in now:

Working at soona. Creating a life of work I loved with the family to match.

Living alone & creating my safe /  happy space. I LOVE my newest apartment so much. I hope to buy something that can be all my own soon.

Self-awareness / therapy for the past year and a half. Doing the work on me. I never knew how amazing that feeling could be and still is. I'll shout it from the roof tops how much therapy has helped me become the me I am today. A good, all around healthy me! I use Sonder Mind, that goes through your insurance for a low co-pay!

Best friendships. I have the most amazing ladies in my life. They've taught me and supported me through it all. I am so grateful they are always a text, phone call or short drive away!

Finances!! Learning and saving! Thank you again to my best friends for showing me the way here! I'm excited to have opened a Roth IRA, have my 6 month emergency fund in place and 401K on the up and up! If you are interested in learning more, read THIS fun and easy book!

Travel & exploration of places I've never been. Mount Rushmore, Moab, Grand Canyon, Toas, Santa Fe and all the hikes I can get my hands on in Colorado. Getting out into nature and not waiting on anyone to do it with has spoke to my soul. I love getting out of the city on weekends. I love road trips. And I love seeing new things! 

And now... I am working at finding the right type of person. I know I can find them because all of the things above have made me happy with the life I have for myself. Now I'm excited to invite the right person in. See you soon ;)

I finally feel where I am meant to be. I'm so excited to to see what another 9 years will bring.

#100cupsofcoffee // rocketman 🚀

100 Cups Of Coffee is my journey through divorce, dating & self-discovery. 

My single journey began in 2015 when I decided to leave my husband & again when Ocean Eyes broke up with me in May 2020. It all feels like forever ago. The ghosts of a life in transition.

The year 2020 brought all the self-love. I'm proud of where I am, guided by therapy, and a newfound self-awareness. Soon after leaving my husband, I was ready to find the love I felt I never received. I quickly fell into the Tinder trap. Today it’s the Bumble bubble. Will I find my person this time around? Boundaries in place. May the odds be ever in my favor.

After HRH I needed a break. I had fallen hard quickly, as Pisces do and it took a week to bounce back to being myself again. Thankfully I had a big project at work to dive into.

Flash forward a month 🗓 still nada from HRH...

Time to bring back the apps. Remind me NOT to delete these until a relationship becomes exclusive. Wow, is it a mentally exhausting to just set them all up again. I needed a break after that. Then, swiping, swiping with no end in sight.

Out of the 3 apps I use, I do not match with many people on Coffee Meets Bagel. But this cutie had me at physical touch and foot massages. Say hello to Rocketman. 🚀

100 Cups Of Coffee is my journey through divorce, dating & self-discovery. 

My single journey began in 2015 when I decided to leave my husband & again when Ocean Eyes broke up with me in May 2020. It all feels like forever ago. The ghosts of a life in transition.

 

The year 2020 brought all the self-love. I'm proud of where I am, guided by therapy, and a newfound self-awareness. Soon after leaving my husband, I was ready to find the love I felt I never received. I quickly fell into the Tinder trap. Today it’s the Bumble bubble. Will I find my person this time around? Boundaries in place. May the odds be ever in my favor.

 

I’ve never written an in progress cup. Here we go. But make it tea.

 

2020 has been the year of never ending 1st dates. Did J3 jinx me? My birthday rolls around and I’m deep in a dry spell. Mid-March hits and I find myself eye rolling time and time again. Hinge, over it. Coffee Meets Bagel, not great. Fine Bumble I’ll give you a go. 🐝

 

Swipe, left, left, left, left. Repeat until forever. 

 

Then I stop in my tracks. Cute smile! I smile back to myself! Let's read the bio shall we? I LOL, lots of head nods.

 

SWIPE RIGHT! Finally... 

 

We match!
