Hello and welcome to my blog!

I'm a career woman in my late 20's who moved from small-town Texas to a big, cosmopolitan city to chase my dreams.

I named this blog after my tattoo. :)

If you're wondering how I ended up in the military significant-other bloggy circle, let me explain: I started this blog to help me navigate my long-distance relationship with a Marine. After a few months, our relationship went through a fairly well-documented implosion. Then a crazy thing happened: after surveying the rubble, I realized that I still had my blog friends, despite no longer having a similar relationship as them. And I love being able to tell my story and to develop friendships by reading yours. I have learned that it may have been our relationships that brought us together, but our relationships don't define who we are, at least not completely.

I left all of the old blog up for a long time, but I recently deleted it. I didn't like having the ghost of that old relationship still lingering. I know there were some other good posts in there that I'll probably be sorry that I hacked away, but it's done now so no looking back.

I'm trying to grow spiritually and to be the person God made me to be. I'm trying to fill my life with positive people and positive experiences. I'd love to have you come along with me. :)
