The Old Maid Diaries :: Dating in your 40s

Old MaidWell, dating at 49 to be exact. I feel like an old maid. Did you guys play that card game as a kid?  You know, the one where the object of the game is to not be left with the “Old Maid” card? I think I was about 5 when I first learned what an Old Maid was: an ugly old lady with gray hair and glasses THAT NO ONE WANTS TO MARRY! AARGGGHHH!  At the start of 2013 I decided to take action to “fix” the things in my life that were less than satisfying. I spend all day helping my clients to live more fulfilling lives yet my own life is in the crapper. Not really, but it feels like that some days. One thing that I often wish for is a boyfriend. Someone to share my life with, do fun things, give me a hug after a bad day (or good one), try new restaurants, watch Homeland. Get my drift? The biggest thing standing in my way has been me and I know that! I have been a single mom for the past 13 years. Yep, that’s a long time. I have dated several good guys and some not great ones, but not “the one.” Over the next several weeks, maybe months, I’m going to record this concentrated effort and try to figure out what it all means. Are my fears real? Is there someone out there for me? Are there any good guys left? What has your midlife dating experience been like? I’d love to hear from you.

This dress was my favorite from last night’s Grammy awards. It received a lot of criticism but I LOVE IT! I think it was actually a jumpsuit. I adore it’s floatiness, delicacy, and colors. Plus it looks comfortable and so pretty with her hair color. This dress makes me feel better on a dreary Monday. I think this is what they mean by
“ethereal.” Have an ethereal Monday!

A Very Etsy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine's Day Gifts!
1/2/3/4/5
I keep hearing the typical complaints about Valentine’s Day being a commercial holiday- hyped up and devoid of true meaning. But let’s be honest, girl’s love it. I’d venture a guess that men like to be on the receiving end of some love too. Try something different and check out Etsy for some unique Valentine’s Day love!
