And now what…

Those three words are what came out of my mouth when I found what I had been searching for. And as of this first blog post, I am still trying to figure it out. I’m actually trying to figure a lot of things out, to include how to create and work this blog. I’d like to think I am not completely illiterate when it comes to technology, but learning how to design and create this blog is requiring a bit of learning on my part. I’ll keep working on it. All I can do is try my best.
My writing tends to be conversational in presentation on this blog because that is how I feel is the best way to express what I want to share. I want this to be like having a relaxed conversation. There is a time and place for formality, and this is not the place.
For now, I just want to introduce myself and give a little bit of background, as well as share what I envision for this blog. I grew up in Ohio where I lived most of my life, with a handful of years in Colorado, and now I currently reside in the sunshine state of Florida. I am married and my husband and I have one adult daughter, and three cats.
I have always had an avid interest in the complex psychology of people and their connections with one another. I love to learn about relationships, whether they be genetic or not. I am a life-long learner of human behavior and forensic psychology. All of my life, people have told me that I am so easy to talk to and they feel like they can share anything with me…and they often do. To me, it is an incredible compliment for others to feel that kind of openness and honesty without any reservation in talking to me. I am humbled and honored that I can be a person that others feel they can speak so candidly with.
In my next post, I will begin to share the story…MY STORY…which was what prompted me to create this blog in the first place. I wanted to be able to document the entire process, as part of keeping a record of my journey. It also got me thinking about how much I truly enjoy other people’s stories too and maybe, just maybe…I can eventually share the stories of other people and their journeys of connection as well. Follow along and watch the journey of connection unfold.

Upon coming home from my weekend birthday getaway, I was feeling fantastic. Trips, get-aways and vacations can do a lot to refuel and recharge a person. I felt energized, optimistic, and just generally really happy. I was so thankful that my husband surprised me with this trip and it was a wonderful memory making weekend…

Hello Lee

My husband and I arrived at our destination with excitement and anticipation of a fun celebratory weekend. He really surprised me and I was a bundle of energy to get this weekend started. First we had to check in and while we did, I explored a little, trying to familiarize myself with the place and…


They say a watched pot never boils. I learned that from the last time I tried to make contact when I remained transfixed awaiting a reply which never came as weeks turned into months. So this time I decided to send the email and not watch that pot. I guess that old adage is right…


I stared at the screen after I hit the send button, as if my staring could somehow will something into happening. In my stare-down contest, I eventually blinked and lost that battle. Nothing happened. I set my phone aside and went about the rest of my evening. Minutes turned into an hour. I checked and…
