I was a single lady for 27 years before I met my now-husband. Because of that long journey, I deeply understand and empathize with you -- with the questions, frustrations, joys, sorrows, challenges, excitements, adventures, and agonies of being a single adult and waiting for the "right one" to find you. Oh, how hard it is sometimes! But how beautiful at times, too, right?
Below, I've compiled a list of the blog posts I have written relating to singleness, relationships, and waiting. I hope you find in them encouragement and companionship. Please, feel free to leave comments or even send me a personal email. I would love to chat with you about your life, experience, and questions as a single lady. Each journey is unique, and YOUR journey matters.

Valentine's day isn't about who has a boyfriend, and who wants a boyfriend, or who had a boyfriend. It's about love, simple as that. (read more...)
Most women probably have a dream of marrying someone gorgeous and muscular and perfect... until they meet a guy and fall in love, and suddenly that person is their dream. (read more...)
