Broken Hearts…

Standard

In August, I found out that my long time boyfriend of two and a half years was cheating on me. Devastation doesn't begin to describe what I've felt. I've been up and down and still feel hurt and angry. I don't know how to not hurt anymore. I don't know how to make this go away. So tell me please. Anyone. I have so much to be thankful for, I really do. But why do I still feel so broken hearted? I hate Valentine's Day, especially this year. And the man I love more then anything is spending that day with someone else. How do I go forward from here? I've got so much coming up, but I miss my man. I really, really miss him, and he's not my man anymore. He's hers. Fuck!

New blog post to come!!

I’ve been the worst blogger ever. I have so much happening these past few months that I’ve let everything that has to do with my creative side, go. So I’m going to catch you up. I promise. My blog may be changing. There’s so much that I think it may become more of a journal. A public one at that. My etsy store had to be closed because no one was buying anything and that took a major toll on my heart. I really was hoping that it would do well. I’m also due to be adopting a baby boy soon and can’t wait to get into the details of how that all came to be. So please, bear with me and thank you for your patience. We are all rock stars, but sometimes, we forget to let ourselves rock. Well, I’m going to be rocking again soon. So look out for me!

I have great news!!!

So, I've decided to start my own business making jewelry, laptop/cell phone covers, compacts, anything can be covered in Swarovski!! I've decided that my business will be called Crystal Frosting. I still have to get a business license and figure out how to get my business off of the ground, but any ideas from my followers would be much appreciated!! Here are a couple of pictures of my recent creations!

So I just finished reading this book and I'm still emotionally affected by it. Usually, I go straight from one book to the next and not think about it. But there are always a few that just stick with me. The one I just finished is definitely one I won't forget.

The story is called If He Had Been With Me by Laura Nowlin.

This book starts out about a young girl going through high school while dealing with most of the young drama that's experienced. But she used to be best friends with one of the most popular guys. They drifted apart in middle school, but rekindled their friendship during a rough patch. Tragedy strikes and when it does, it rips your heart out. I'm still tearing up while writing this. My hearts just breaking.

Anyway, I think it's definitely something that you should read, like the next on your list of to be reads.

Temporarily Yours by Diane Alberts

Book Summary: 

This soldier’s the perfect hoax…if she doesn’t fall for him first.Stats whiz Kayla Moriarity knows her way around numbers and algorithms. Men, on the other hand, are unsolvable equations. Now Kayla’s en route to her sister’s wedding—without the fictional boyfriend she invented for her family. Fortunately, her plane comes complete with complimentary cocktails and a ridiculously hot ex-marine in the seat beside her. And that’s all it takes for Kayla’s inhibitions to go sailing out the airlock…Cooper Shillings has soft spot for people in trouble, but he certainly wasn’t expecting to land in it himself—and definitely not while getting naughty mid-air with a sexy southern belle. When he hears Kayla’s predicament, however, he offers his services as a stand-in boyfriend. After all, he’s heading overseas soon…and how could he refuse a little no-strings wickedness?

It’s the perfect plan. And all Kayla has to do is ensure her family falls for the ultimate bluff, without falling for it—and Cooper—in the process…

My opinion:

This was a cute and funny short story. While it’s not something that we would find in everyday happenings, I wouldn’t mind to find my own Cooper. He was charming, sexy and oh so desirable. I think it would be a good read for a trip on an airplane or a good beach read. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
