The eclipse was today and you better believe that I got all caught up in the hype almost a year ago.

I’ve been reading up on it and watching documentaries.

However, nothing could have prepared me for what I witnessed.

Holy fuck.

Where I live we achieved totality for one minute and 58 seconds.

The temperature dropped and it did darken up but the temperature by far was the coolest (pun intended) part other than watching the actual eclipse.

This was the last sliver of sun before totality.

Flip Flap. 

Ok, so my inner upper thighs are flap clapping in the wind. 

And, it’s so not cool. 

I’ve been more active. Walking an average of 7 miles a day, riding my bike, playing tennis and roller skating and my legs have gotten so toned. 

Except my inner upper thighs. 

What’s a girl to do?! 


I live in the Willamette Valley and even in the summertime, it gets foggy.

When I was a child, my brother told me that fog eats your brains.

He said that you always had to wear a hat or ear muffins (brother also said they were called ear muffins, not ear muffs) in the fog.

I’ve been wearing a hat while going out in the fog for over 30 years.

Don’t you do it….

Do. Not. Ask. A. Woman. If. She. Can. Squirt.  

This has got to be the most annoying question that men ask me. 

It’s an INSTANT turn off. 

For the record, every single woman can squirt. It’s just that most don’t know their body well enough for it to happen. 

So, take my advice and keep this question to yourself because chances are that you wouldn’t be able to make her squirt anyways. 

I don’t get the tag line but it made me laugh.

I’ve been reading about four books a week.

New aloe plant.
Looks so good, right?!
Gum for a good cause but they fucked me up with the GMO crap.
Love me some Amazon Prime.
My favorite morning spot.
I saw this on the way home the other day. Deal breaker.
Say it ain’t so…
I do try and answer all my messages.
I got this message from the boy I invited over and stole my panties.
It snowed!!!! It only happens here like once every four years. It was magical.
I’ve been tanning.

Weak in the knees. 


We have been together for seven years and I can without a doubt say that it’s been a true pleasure and loving experience. 

I met Ryan when he replied to an ad that I placed on Craigslist, looking for an 18 year old guy that was inexperienced sexually. 

We didn’t have much correspondence before we met. But, the immediate physical attraction was breathtaking. 

To this day, I can’t keep my hands off of him. 

Ryan loves me in a way that no one has ever loved me before. He’s selfless and has so much compassion that in his heart, I can do no wrong and he has never judged me for my impulsive actions. 

Four years ago, I let Ryan go. We had been together for three years at that point and he was 21 years old. 

I felt as though it was time for him to go out and experience other men and women, beyond the ones I invited into our bedroom for playtime. 

I wanted him to love. Love more. Love hard. 

He was an excellent lover, great listener, kind, good natured, so intelligent and had the ability to be empathic to even complete strangers. 

(He looked good in my panties, too.)

I wanted other people to experience what I had experienced with him. I wanted other people to be showered in his extraordinary love. 

We didn’t talk for six months. 

Exactly, at the six month date, he came to my front door and said that he bought the house at the end of the block and he was back in my life. 


It was the first bold move that I had ever seen Ryan take against me. 

I’m dominant and he’s submissive. 

It had never happened before. 

I embraced him, feeling him shake a little at my touch, like he always has done (even now).

We fell back into our groove but it was better. Stronger. Engulfed in love. 

Now, seven years later, we are stronger than ever and we have never left that honeymoon stage. 

I see Ryan every single day. He leaves me fresh flowers and fresh cuts of meat from the butcher. We make out, play UNO and he completely submits to me, not only in the bedroom but in our everyday life. 

I know that it sounds so silly but this kid was made for me and we were made to love hard. 
I hope that everyone in this world gets to experience a true unconditional relationship like I have with Ryan. A relationship that makes you better deep within your soul, and also one that feels as wonderful seven years later as it did went we first fell for each other. 

Ryan makes me better.
