Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Reflection and the Purge

In the mood for a little reflection. The girl, her past and a forbidden love.

 She had the world at her finger tips as she came into her own, too many friends to count, the eyes of every guy as she passed by. She indulged a few but was still searching for something. The player was very intriguing and a little sexy but couldn’t commit. Ahhh, the player, too bad. That relationship was too scary for this girl who needed too much. She lived in a very protected place, censorship, perfectly lovely family who said all the right things, no violence, no ugly scenes, just clean living.  She was always the pampered princess but this girl was so curious. She had to take a peek now and then at life on the other side. The characters were so real and they felt and expressed it all, everything good and bad and all that was in-between. She tiptoed and dipped her feet, just until her toes got wet, well, maybe slightly damp. Unlike those who loved and pampered her she was always reaching for the forbidden fruit.  Her Friends began to change places as she took a walk with those who dwell-ed on the wilder side.  Just a short walk not a dance. She watched but never partook, her life was just on the edge but never tainted.

Then one day a boy from the other side of the tracks caught her eye. He was dangerous, at least on the outside. She indulged him a lot.  He fell hard and she followed. He was the first boy who liked her for who she truly was and she liked him back.  And now…The player doesn’t dwell in her garden anymore he plays in a yard near-by.  Sigh…   As for the dangerous boy… Well, lets leave that for another time and place.

Had to get this out of my head. It’s getting crowded in here and I’m trying to purge before vacation. Lovely, oh so lovely…. vacation.

choc-cake

Chocolate cake is the ultimate food porn.

 I thought I would share a tip for sexy eats that are sure to improve your love life. Zoe from Bigmethod left me an email with a link to an interesting web site called The Lovebite. This site is run by an Aussie chef named Mannix. He promises to teach you the art of seduction through pleasing the palate. For some reason just typing the words “art of seduction” steamed up the windows in my office.  Is it hot in here or is it just me? Sorry back to the food. Mannix has a number of romantic recipes for the perfect date night. His clever tips just might make that special someone fall passionately in love with you or at least keep him/her coming back for more. My fav is the menu for a dirty weekend which includes roasted chicken, brie, avocado, baguettes, antipasti with chocolate and whiskey to finish. A sumptuous recipe for Mango Mischief got me really excited.  I may have to try it.

The Lovebite a clever site with great dating tips and delicious recipes that you just have to try- date or no date. You can peruse his tasty recipes or sign up for the Get Bit news letter. A new date with recipe to match are featured every month. What a great way to add a little romance back into your life without breaking the bank.

Perfect Love/Perfect Lie con’t

Brie is back on the sofa to continue her story. (if you missed the beginning click here to catch up)

As I said our love story started out so beautifully. We looked like the perfect family to all who knew us.  But things started to change and I knew something wasn’t right the moment he stopped coming home on time. Kane began working very long hours and started traveling on weekends. I knew it wasn’t right but I think a big part of me didn’t want to know what was really going on. By now we had moved into a big house with a beautifully manicured lawn and all the toys. I covered for Kane when he didn’t make it to the kids soccer games or birthday parties. I told everyone that he was in the middle of an important deal and he had to work around the clock. I don’t know why I did it. I guess I wanted to believe it and I certainly didn’t want to disappoint everyone who thought we had the perfect love. Things went on like this for years. I took care of the kids and cleaned the house while he was always away somewhere making deals or who knows what. I lived in a beautiful house, drove a luxury car and never saw a bill. Many woman would have killed for my life but I was lonely and living what I knew to be a lie. This life was killing me.

One day when my oldest son was in third grade an older student came up to him and said my mom just had a baby and she is your sister. I was thankful that my son was too young to understand or believe such a thing. I told him that she had him confused with someone else and he forgot all about it. Of course Kane denied the alligation when I confronted him. I let it go and continued on with our little charade. There were days when I felt like I was being followed and times when the phone rang but no one spoke.

It wasn’t until an orange eviction sticker appeared on my front door that I began to think I could no longer hide from the truth. Kane said not to worry it must be a mistake and he would take care of everything. Once again I gave in to his confidence and went on with my life. It took my car being repossessed and a Christmas alone before I convinced myself that he was having an affair and didn’t care about us.

I went to a lawyer after the holidays were over and filed for divorce. I had the locks changed and threw his belonging out on the lawn. I told myself that I was strong and that my family deserved better. I found a job and let my lawyer take care of the rest. My court date was fast approaching when the notice went in the paper. That notice started a chain of events that my lawyer and I just couldn’t believe. Things like this only happen in the movies and certainly not in my life.

Junie: We will conclude Brie’s family saga later. One can only imagine the ending to this unbelievable story. It’s really good!
