Greetings!

Welcome to my blog. This is a blog of variety. I will post about my life as a single mother, issues of going through a divorce, dealing with the divorce, dating as a single mother, dating in general, troubles with redecorating my home, etc.

A little about me: I am different that is for sure.
As I wrote above, I am a single mother to a wonderful little boy. He is my world and he will always be first to me. I also have a 2 1/2 year old mutt whom I adopted from a friend when she was 3 months old. She has been a great companion for the last 2 years.
I met my soon-to-be-ex-husband back in 2004. We began dating in 2006, got engaged in 2007, bought a home and got married in 2009, found out I was pregnant in 2010, had our son in 2011, separated shortly after, and are currently in the process of a divorce.
I was raised Roman Catholic but converted to Paganism 9 years ago. I am a very spiritual person and while I enjoy a good discussion on religion, I am not one for debating it. I stand by the belief of "Do not force your beliefs on me and I will not force mine upon you."
I love attending the renaissance festivals and I am even a licensed wench (visit wench.org for more information). This will be my 13th year attending my local renaissance festival. I do dress up in corsets and bodices and have created a persona for the festivals. I have enjoyed it greatly and have made many amazing friends in the process. I am sure there will be posts regarding this as well!
During the regular work week, I am an accountant. I have an office and work the standard hours. I enjoy my job, but its hardly something one could consider exciting.
Finally, my main hobby, aside from the renaissance festivals, is writing. I love to write, especially fiction. I have not been published yet, but my dream is to one day be a published author.

I will probably talk about several different people on here. In order to give some sort of privacy, I will simply use nicknames to refer to them. For instance, when I discuss my soon-to-be-ex-husband, he will be referred to as ExH. I will refer to my son as Rit. I think you get the idea.

So welcome and happy reading!
