MH is looking for a guy who is fit and fearless, a doer who gives back and leads by example.  BT Urruela epitomizes all of those traits! […]

I’m a Big Girl Now

For the first time in my life, I’m in a position where I can begin to look at buying my own home. While married, we lived in an apartment and then in base housing. Since my marriage ended, I’ve been renting a quirky but beautiful home set atop a hill with some of the best views around.  My evening sunsets are beyond stunning.  Over the last 5 years, I have […]

Reaching a Goal

I’ve been working my ass off at the gym over this last year.  Granted, I’m not in the gym NEARLY as much as I’d like to be, but I work hard when I’m there on the weekends.  I usually spend 3 hours every Saturday and Sunday morning… cardio and then weights.  Once I’m warmed up with cardio and sweating buckets, I move on to weights… which I LOVE.  Given that […]

Fearless Anthology

Fearless Anthology

As soon as this book was available for pre-order, I was all over it.  As soon as it was officially released, I bought multiple copies to send to friends.  Not only am I total romance junkie, but I also love that all proceeds go to VETSports (a fantastic organization I fully support).  With a foreword written by Retired Army Sgt BT Urruela sharing his story in his own words. (Not […]

Judgment

At what point do you draw the line in a friendship between being supportive yet worried and being judgmental? It seems to me it’s a fine line that tends to be crossed all too often.  I feel that friends should be open and honest about their viewpoint, however, they should be supportive as long as you’re not endangering yourself in some way.  Passing judgment is a sure way to destroy […]

Too Little Too Late?

So far, I’ve written 5 blog posts this year.  That’s as many as I’ve written total in recent years.  Maybe I’m finally coming back around.  Though now I’m wondering… is it too little too late??  Have I lost all my readers?  I know I haven’t been present in a very long time… but, I do still peruse your blogs now and then.  I do still follow your life updates.  I […]

Being Backstage

Before I could walk, I danced.  Before I could write, I danced.  By age 3, I was performing on stage.  Dancing has been in my life for as long as I can remember.  Although I no longer dance on a stage, I still hold the same passion.  My parents put me in dance classes early on at a studio I would remain at until I was 20 years old.  Starting […]

Freedom & Solitude

In 2006, I found myself lost… searching for who I was… what was left of me. I sought out solitude wherever and whenever possible. I was confined within myself and afraid of the world. Every quick movement startled me, noises in the night terrified me, and trust was no longer a word I believed in.  In time, it became clear that I was unraveling in every sense of the word. […]

Façades

One of the most disappointing feelings I’ve found in life is that feeling you experience when you realize someone isn’t who they portray themselves to be.  Outwardly, they seem to be so open and loving of everyone around them… yet, once you get to know them you find it’s all a façade. In reality, they’re judgmental, arrogant, egotistical, and any measure of caring and concern previously shown is nonexistent… or […]
