The First Time

Today was the first time I’ve ever gone to the cemetery alone to visit my Nonna. She passed away in 2008 and it has taken me this long to have the courage to go alone.

I have Laura, a councillor at the hospital to thank for this and my cousin Natalie who earlier this week pointed out a different way to get there. Laura suggested that tomorrow we all go for a walk if the weather is nice. Today was a beautiful day, and we all went to Abruzzo’s on Yonge Street. This is a great restaurant, my family frequently does takeout there.

After the meal I decided to walk home because of Laura’s earlier suggestion. On the way was the cemetery my Nonna is burried at and I went in. I really miss our one on one conversations. I told her I’m sorry and talked to her about many things: the man I liked, the year I had at The Rose and Crown etc. I told her about the recovery program and thanked her, for saving me and for always believing in me. She believed in all of us in the family and loved us all with everything she had.

Today I lived in love.

And thanks to my dad for picking me up! I said I was ok but he was worried I would get locked in the cemetery. xoxo

The Man You Should Go To: Matthew Hussey

If you are looking for professional dating advice then I truly believe that Matthew Hussey is one of the best coaches out there for women. Here is a link to his website:

Although I have failed in the past to follow his advice, I do believe that it is important for women coming from any walks in life to be exposed to his work. All of the videos I have watched and articles I have read give you the feedback and advice you need to be successful in a relationship.


I remember making this meme as a joke. I hope he found it funny!

❤️ Let’s Talk About Love ❤️ 

Ever since I was little I always had intense crushes on people. That wouldn’t have been love though, that would have been infatuation and hormone development.

My dream has always been to be a writer. Write a few novels, have a blog that gives great advice to women and work for a magazine. That’s what I want from my work life. That right there would be living in love.

I’ve always been a hopeless romantic. I want to find love and make love all day and come home to someone I know is in my court. Is part of my “no matter what club” as Kelly Cutrone calls it. I’ve thought in the past I’ve been close. But those relationships were far from ideal. Although I lived through them with as much passion and love as I could. I gave all of me to these people and that is how I intend to be in my relationships. When I love you I give it my all even if that means walking away so the other person can be happy.

Family has always been important to me even when I don’t feel they have my back. I love them. That’s what I’ve always wanted from life. A life filled with love. I hope I can help anyone who comes upon this blog find that in their own life.
