My friends gave me roots n wings this weekend. I started daydreaming.
I want my home. The home I have. I want to finish the floors and the closets and the trim. I want new appliances and a backyard fence. I want a couch and photos on the wall of the people I love. I want to get the construction destruction cleaned up.
I want my home filled with my friends. That’s the most important thing. Also, if you have enough friends they can form a line and BE the backyard fence. So, bonus.
I want my friendships to be stronger. This last weekend was another opportunity to reconnect – and to be immersed in the knowledge that these people of my youth are absolutely INCREDIBLE adults.
Learning from them showed me what I want to be:
- well travelled
- hotter than the sun
I know I want a man who challenges me, who can keep up with me, who can have fun, and who can make me melt by the very thought of him.
I know I want friends who call bullshit, who support and who celebrate me being me.
Amen to knowing at long last what the hell I want and knowing I can get it all.
Wonderful!! Go for it ALL.
I’m available for the helping of the house to be physically ready – though you’re doing an AMAZING job already!! But I don’t know about the part about being hotter than the sun.
Friends who call bullshit are the best friends ever.

I found your blog today from reading the Curvy Girl Guide. I have to say, your relationship struggles hit close to home (except that I don’t talk about it on my blog). I love what you said above about what you want in a man. I echo that. And I vow to remind myself of that often. Thank you!
