Is it Really a Lie?

lies

I've been having an ongoing conversation with my boyfriend for years. It concerns what makes a lie, a lie! I say anything that isn't true is a lie. If you only admit a partial truth in order to conceal something, that's a lie too. Especially if it's to hide your own transgressions, no matter how trivial.

He says if a lie is told to protect from hurting someones feelings then it's not really a … [Read more...]

Oh there is so much teasing involved that it can sometimes really hurt the ever so fragile ego. You would be surprised to know that it probably has … [Read more...]

How do you meet women?

  Ok guys, this question actually comes from me, Kathryn. I had a recent conversation with a gentleman that was asking when our next party would be.

If you ever need someone to cry with you, I’m your girl!

women crying together

It seems like tears and laughter lie simultaneously just underneath the surface of me. In fact, all of my emotions are easily tapped into in the blink of an eye. I have always been this way. Since I can remember, tears seem to readily spring to my eyes and humble me at the mere hint of an emotional moment. Whether it’s tears of joy or sadness, they are always willing to show what’s going on in my heart whether I want it known to the public or not. I have also had times that laughter came … [Read more...]

How do you act?

guys hanging out

Ok guys, this question is for the single and attached gentlemen: Do you think that you act different when you are just hanging out with the guys than you do when a woman that you find attractive walks into the mix?

My Throw Down with “Dance Mom”

Katie First Dance Recital

      At the end of this month I will be attending my millionth dance recital! Ok, maybe that is a slight exaggeration but let's say I've attended a bunch. My daughter danced for 14 years and now my god-daughter is in her 11th year of dance. She will most likely continue on for another 4 years so I still have a few years ahead of me before this comes to an end.   I love watching all the dancers and seeing how they have grown in talent and size from … [Read more...]

Woman to Woman

Woman We Can Do It!

One of the most important relationships in our lifetime are the ones we share with other women. As women, we have to wear so many hats and carry so much of the world on our shoulders.  We often hear how difficult it is to get along with other women. We're often called catty and competitive. While that may be the case in some circles, I wouldn't be where I am today or possibly here at all if it wasn't for my amazing circle of women friends that coddled me when I needed to be protected, kicked … [Read more...]
