Paintin' and a'drankin'

My local bar is doing a paint night on July 2nd. I've gotten my trusty sidekick, JC, to go with me.

Below is the painting we'll all be doing. We'll see how close I get to this. I will post the finished product next month! I've been wanting some more art for my new apartment. Hopefully it will end up 'hang worthy' and not something that will be quietly placed in my closet. This isn't really something I would pick out at a store to hang up in my home, but it will be a nice reminder of a nice time out with friends!... making memories, having fun, and living life.

Bar Arting!  If I remember to, I'll try to take some video while I'm there.

JC AND ME when we were in Key West LAST WEEKEND!

The First of Many

The first post on my new blog. I figured starting a NEW one was completely in order, yes? YES!

I bought myself a Chromebook yesterday on a whim. Best present I could have ever given myself.  I love me. I am the best. I know me so well.

A keyboard again under my fingertips! An actual keyboard! I'm so happy about it.

FIRST OF ALL, do not look at "party of one" and think, awww. Because it is not a bad thing! I have embraced my party of one status. It is my CHOICE to remain a party of one. At least for now. I could have already been in a relationship again after this short time (the ex-husband and I split about a year ago), but why. WHY? Why on earth would I do that?!

After being with the same person since I was fifteen years old, and now single for the first time, EVER, at the age of 42? Good God. I am not going to latch on to the first person I come across. Well, or the 2nd.  Or the 3rd. I am not afraid to be single. "Single" does not mean "alone and unhappy." At least not in the world of Misty.

It's only forward now! And I am having fun!
