I’ve always lived with someone.  I have never had the chance to actually have a place all to myself.  So when I get the house to myself, its actually a really great time for me.  I love it.  I love being alone.  I love the solitude.  I love being quiet.  I like that fact that there is no one around me.  That isn’t to say I always want to be alone, its just that when I get these moments, I cherish them.

For me, there are aways a couple of things that makes this time great and that is the reason for tonight’s post.  These are just three of the best but there could have easily been more.

1.  No Schedules

2.  Going Nude (that’s right walking around naked)

3.  Singing and Dancing (like there is no one around – because there isn’t!)

No schedules.  This is simply a dream come true when you are by yourself.  You don’t need to have dinner at a certain time, there is not set time that you need to get up, no set time to do anything.  That is why this is at the top of my list.  I love being able to let go of the structure of life for those precious days by myself and just adopt a freer, less contrictive lifestyle.

I know that it might be cliché about going nude but really that is a time to be one with your birthday suit.  Its not to say you can’t walk around nude with your partner or whoever else you feel comfortable with but it just seems better when you are alone.  To walk around and not try to hide all the flaws you think you have (which you might do with someone else).  Just getting naked.  Its liberating.

My last item on the list was singing and dancing.  This is one that I truly get behind.  I’m lucky because I don’t have close neighbors, so I can blast my music and I do.  Its so loud and I just sing to the songs on my playlist and dance around my house.  Its fun, great exercise and a grea way to cut out the stress.  One of the best songs for this is Part of Me by Katy Perry.  Another good song for this is Sugar, Sugar by The Archies and of course anything by Lady Gaga.

Best Three Reasons Why Having a Sister is Great!

For this post, I wanted to focus on one amazing person in my life, who not only is my best friend but also happens to be my sister.  She is one of the most important people in my life.  She is my big sister and has truly and always lived up to that title.  She is an amazing person.

For sisters, we have so much in common but we also have very different personalities (which I think most siblings do).  My sister is someone I can rely on, and who always helps me out when I need it.  She is always there to listen to me when I need to rant and rave about my life, when I need to cry and when things get too complicated.  She is also there to laugh with, to introduce me to new TV shows, movies, books and other things that I don’t know about and to just hang out with (this is more complicated now, as I don’t live anywhere near her).  However with texting we are able to stay in touch constantly (since I am not a telephone person) and can have that immediate connecti

1.  A built in best friend

2.  A guaranteed maid of honor

3.  Knowing there is someone out that is looking out for you

I am best friend’s with my sister (and I know that makes me lucky as there are a lot of sisters who are not friends at all).  This also makes it so much easier during family visits, reunions, weddings, funerals etc. – there is always someone that has your back but also has no choice but to be there also.

My number 2 best pick was easy.  For anyone that has had to choose a maid of honor and didn’t have a sister – that must have been uncomfortable (this also could go the other way, if you did have a sister and didn’t pick her as maid of honor).  Thankfully that will never happen for me, as I have a guaranteed maid of honor.  So great not to have that hassle.

As for my number 3 pick, that was also easy.  No matter what, even if we are fighter, I know my sister will be there to help me and stand up for me no matter what.  That is nice to have that and it is vice versa – I would be there no matter what.

So big sis, this goes out to the idiot that snubbed you:  “Kevin – you are a total a**hole!”

Best Three Reasons to Fall in Love

If you are one of the lucky people out there who has falling in love, you understand that there is no other feeling like it out there in the world.  As for me, I am one of those lucky people.  I found my best friend, partner and soulmate early in my life and I have been with him ever since.   We fell in love (and continue to fall in love everyday).  Sure there are days when I would like to hit him over the head but then he does or says something that brings back my sanity and reminds me why I fell in love in the first place.  To find someone that knows you better than anyone else is truly a gift.  It makes life worth living.  It shapes the person you are and makes you better.  I am not saying that it is all “sunshine and rainbows” cause that is not the true.  Once you are in love, its hard work…and there are times when you want to give up and move on but something inside you keeps fighting and that is how you know it’s love.  So I wanted to devote a post about the best reasons to fall in love. (because I highly recommend it) – whether it be with your soulmate or whether you fall in love multiple times – either way – here are the Best 3 Reasons to Fall in Love:

1.  The way love makes you feel

2.  Sharing yourself with someone

3.  It’s fun!

The way love makes you feel is just great.  It makes you feel lighter like you have a bounce in your step.  It’s as though all your senses are on high alert – everything smells better, tastes better, looks better, etc.  The feeling just radiates through your body and it is amazing.  When you first fall in love – these feelings are magnified and sometimes as you get more comfortable with one another those feelings fade but never really go away.  Sometimes they can sneak up on you – for me its the butterflies or ‘funny tingle’ that I get in my stomach after not seing my husband for a few days…even after all this time together – that feeling always comes back for me.

When you fall in love, you really are opening yourself up to love and pain but that is one of the best reasons to fall in love.  Sharing yourself with someone else is probably the hardest thing you can do because you are letting down your guard and showing them the ‘real’ you and when you do, it is not only satisfying but has the ability to bring you even closer together.For my last choice, a reason to fall in love is for the fun factor – it is fun.  It makes you feel invisible and like I mentioned above let’s you be yourself.  I have never had more fun with anyone else like I do with my husband.

Hope you enjoy and I hope that other will share their best reasons for  falling in love or just their stories of falling in love (what can I say – I am a sucker for love)
