Growing up in North Carolina, my father and grandfather, grew tobacco… which meant getting the ground ready, setting, cutting, hanging and sorting once dried…

Now I understand that I have probably missed more than one step along the way however it has been more than 20 years (probably more like 30+) since my family raised tobacco. After all this time I can still remember all of the hard work that goes into raising tobacco.

A couple of years ago, I heard about a tobacco basket that was at this nearby consignment shop…

The picture is not of the best quality and the basket has definitely seen better days…however I know without a shadow of a doubt that each time I catch a glimpse of it, I think of my father and grandfather, whom I love and miss each and every day… so to me…the piece is absolutely perfect.

The Girl That…

Life is far too short for us to try and live our lives for someone else. 

Be respectful, be kind, be happy, love yourself and others, play, have fun, be stupid, play in the rain, buy coloring books and color (as an adult), act silly, enjoy YOUR life. Live YOUR life. Love YOUR life…

Dating…

Dating these days is a challenge to say the least.  It is extremely difficult to meet someone at work – most companies frown on colleagues dating – plus who has the time to socialize with the ever increasing workload most people have.

A lot of single people are not entirely truthful about themselves… it is, I guess, more interesting to be someone you’re not than someone you have to be on a daily basis. I get that, I really do. If I were to be someone I’m not, if only for a day… I believe I would be this ubber skinny, extremely wealthy, intelligent diva that doesn’t have to work…spending all my time getting my nails and toes done, my hair trimmed, shopping, hanging out all day with my clique, who like me are utterly fabulous…

Then reality sets in… even though it might be nice to fantasize about being someone I’m not… keeping up with the lies and trying to remember what you’ve said to whom…would be thoroughly exhausting. For all those people who are totally more interesting online than they are in person… be yourself. Be true to who you are. The people who truly matter will love the person you are, not the person you want to be…

I was chatting with someone online last night and the question was posed… what traits are you looking for in a significant other?

I found myself, for the first time, aware of what I’ve potentially been doing wrong in this crazy world of dating… I literally had no idea what type of man I was in search of.  Did he like children? Was he a dog or cat (or neither) kinda guy? Did he have a bit of an artistic flair or did he even know the difference between Monet and Manet?  What type of music did he enjoy? What were his favorite foods? Was he kind hearted and generous?

I would never approach my career in that manner. I set goals, worked my ass off (most days) to achieve those goals and have somewhat landed where I wanted to be at this stage in my life. Or at least where I was meant to be.

So the question is do I continue to let random events shape my love life or do I become a more active participant and move forward and take control of all aspects of my life?
