It’s been a long time…….

So I said we would blog here and there and keep in touch. Well, my bad. It’s been busy as shit. As many things that have happened that I was like “damn that would have been a hot topic on the podcast” have happened.. there literally has been zero time. So today I figured I’d start.

So yeah. As suspected, I got engaged. The ” how” is for another time. I’ll just say I am odd, he is odd. We are both shy and kinda impulsive and now we are here. So what I didn’t know is my mother kept a secret for a whole month. We are all really proud of her. But as soon as I found out the planning phone calls began.

So as where I have never been the little girl who was waiting for her prince and the day to wear the big ball gown I apparently forgot I was someone’s daughter who had these dreams of her own. The original plan was rent a house, get some food and have a giant wedding house party weekend. Finding a house is not as easy as you think. That was one. And 2. We are adopting. (Longer blog later) it’s Alot of work and I wanted a wedding to be as simple as possible. So we’ve gone with the semi traditional route.

So I have this little problem. I don’t like having a do to list. I need organization in my life. I enjoy getting tasks checked off in a timely manner. With that being said less then 2 months after our engagement I am done planning our wedding with the exception of hair and make-up.

Do I absolutely Love Love Love every choice that I made? In short.. No. Many decisions were made to meet my folks half way and because at the end of the day the only thing that matters is the person I’m marrying. He’s pretty awesome. The venue is nice, also affordable. That’s a plus. The dress .. give me shape and looks nice on me. Who could really ask for more? The entertainment is a friend so that will be great. It’s a small amount of people (apparently 100 is small for a wedding venue) so all of my favorite people will be there to celebrate the joining of two families and at the end of the day that’s what matters. Now if I can get my mom off the fact that she thinks I need a tiara all will be good. ( Does she know me ??)

Weddings don’t have to be a hoop-la. And I am hoping even though we’ve gone with a traditional venue ,D.J. etc the end goal of marrying my best friend and celebrating drama free with the people I love is a goal we can accomplish. No brides maids , no best man, no garter belt toss.. just a celebration of Love and a old fashion house party in someone else’s ” house”.

DATING: 9-1-1

 

During our last episode we spoke with life coach, and relationship expert, Georgia Woodbine, and discussed her book about finding the right man (we posted to the site), as well as, the ends and outs of dating.  One question I forgot to ask her is what she thought about a woman dating outside of her race.  Should she go outside her norm meaning just attributes and checklist or should she go allll the way outside of her norm when different cultures, races, ethnicities, etc. if she really never considered it before?  I personally believe people should date who they are attracted to, and that includes physical attributes, and the personality.  I believe if a person gives someone a shot who is from a different race, culture, ethnicity, etc. and those two people realize their beliefs are not in line, then keep it moving.  But at least give it a shot.

As promised…. Some Poetry…

Here is one of my favorite poems.  I will share them periodically. If you are an avid listener I am sure you can guess who it was about.    Enjoy …

 

Tent Time

He came with a backpack of clothes and a Xbox
I opened the door to good intentions and to my heart.
We were scared , but if the 3 day weekends we spend together were so awesome..
The rest of the work week was cake.. right ?
I am still not sure why I found him amazing..
He meowed like a cat when he was nervous or bored.. But it made me smile.
At night he held me like if he let me go I’d fall off the bed.
That was only after tent time where we would talk under the covers to protect our secrets.
Every night he would reveal a little bit more of what was behind curtain number two
I felt a connection …
He felt …

Nothing ..

At first of course he searched and tried to find the words. Waiting and hoping to feel something ..
Because According to him .. If he couldnt love me ..
Then he was probably incapable of feeling it at all ..
We tried..
I tried..
and eventually he left ..
I miss tent time .. and every so often I get under the covers to find that he is not there…
Finding deficits with in myself that really don’t exist trying to explain how this could have happened
Blaming his past lovers for walking on his soul and leaving imprints so deep that I would never be able to fill those shoes.
But hes gone..
and there are things I wanna tell him
Did you see that fight ? Have you heard that new track?
But he turns a deaf ear to my existence
The resistance
fills my pillow with tears until my body weakens into a slumber.
Every essence of him  that surrounds me makes ache
Memories don’t live like people do ?
Do I Still exist to you?     – Jennifer
