Hmmm … arm candy!

So lately, I have been all about the skies, food, sweets, wine, shoes, and last but not least bangles …  my latest craze in arm candy.  But I think I may have just found another form of arm candy … the younger man.

Yes!  Now I am playing cougar.  Who knew?!  A former co-worker and I have re-connected on social media.  We have met up as friends but now he is pouring his heart out to me about love, relationship … with me.  So, I am trying to keep an open mind.

I have been having issues trying to date in my age range. We all have baggage – some more than others.  Learning, that with a younger man there is definitely less baggage. I won’t have decades of past relationships and other issues to deal with. I don’t have to worry about his ex-wife and children — it will be all about the two of us.  And right now, at this point in my life – it’s what I want and deserve, Growing tired of playing it safe, of being alone.  I like to be chased, adored.

I was always a bit of a late-bloomer, and being with a younger man may just somehow keep me in a forever-inspired mode.  My younger friend may have less, but gives more.  I am in a non-settling frame of mind.

One of my favorite aunts was in town last month and she started telling me how lucky she was to have married a younger man – her second chance at love. She was widowed at a young age with small children when she found her second chance. She had a stroke two years ago and was feeling fortunate her husband is healthy and younger. She also told me that he was less judgmental, less traditional, less bound by stereotype – which has helped her in many ways to being happier, even a better mom. She had me thinking … then bam, he comes back into my life – this time not as a co-worker, but a friend.

Who knows…I am not making any decisions, I don’t need to. I am just taking it one minute at a time. Enjoying life. Trying to worry less, stay sane and get healthier. I am going to stop worrying so much about what others may think, stop wondering what this younger guy sees in me, and just enjoy the attention. I deserve every flattering, delicious moment … so I plan to sit back and continue counting my blessings and start looking for this Maca root from the jungles of Peru.

Looking forward to finally, freely living some more, to have my emotions raw, to the potential and the possibilities of having my body, mind, and soul literally rocked … ah nirvana may indeed be mine. Fulfillment, contentment … indeed … on my journey of living deliciously with grace in my step, hope in my heart. I am back …


Life is short … buy the shoes!

This past winter had me more than cold and blue, the spring has me sneezy and red, but summer should be soon enough and hopefully that will see me smiling sunny skies.  I just realized I have not really written much besides checks for the past few months, and I am beginning to think I have a problem.  I have been shopping, yes me … I have even been sighted at a few malls lately.  I detest shopping, but I am slowly coming to the realization that I have a shoe addiction.  Yes, shoes!  Me?!  I am usually the least materialistic person I know – but lately there has been a definitive shift in my brain and heart…. I still crave and live to eat and travel but lately I am in love with shoes, especially ankles straps, and bangles.   It’s now all about #wristporn and #shoeporn.

While I am still #LivingDeliciously and enjoying good food and even better wines and desserts, I find myself on this hot foot race pursuit of shoes and silver/black bangles. Ah….for the love of shoes ….black shoes!

Geesh   I never knew I was so black shoe obsessive.  Yes, all in black  – well some with some white or silver … Women have long realized that cool, trendy shoes do not only complement the outfit, they are the whole point. From Cinderella to Carrie, we have all fallen head over heels for “the right pair”—and most say to hell with cost or comfort!  Not so much me – I am all about the comfort, with a heel for my high foot arch, and I have no choice but to be cost-conscious.  No red-heeled Ln Christian Louboutin’s for me … sadly.   I am waiting to relive that iconic scene in Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, when Anita Ekberg decadently drinks champagne from her show in Rome’s Trevi Fountain.  So many TV, movie, even fairy tale moments center around women and shoes …  Cinderella and her glass slipper, Dorothy clicking her red glitter heels together in the Wizard of Oz, Carrie Bradshaw’s love affair with her Manolo Blahniks in Sex and the City … let’s face it – shoes, especially heels, make most women feel sexy, powerful, and stylish.

In the words of Marilyn Monroe, “I don’t know who invented the high heel, but all women sure owe him a lot”…. #Truth !!!

So, whether it be thanks to some male French nobility, military, Catherine de Medici, Leonardo Da Vinci – let’s all say a silent prayer praising them all.

Now …who wants to help me organize my closets??  #Bueller??
