My Life

Cocktails With Hemingway has returned.

Where do I even begin?  I made an obligatory ‘I turned 30’ blog post just to mark the occasion at the end of July.  Prior to that my last regular posts were in May.  Suffice it to say there’s much to discuss– but for now I will summarize with a general overview.


Most notable regarding recent events is my decision to move out of the home of my parents.  I cannot emphasize enough the fact they are absolutely incredible people/parents– they have been far better to me than I deserve– and I have nothing but the utmost love and respect for them.  Yet I felt like I was stuck in a rut.  Considering I am a 30 year old woman it is way past due for me to claim my independence and become self-sufficient.

Tears stream down my face as I write this.  It’s hard to discuss, like a knife stabbing in my heart.  But my children are at the home they know.  Snatching them from the stable environment they know as I struggle to get on my feet is unfair and wrong.  As much as I hate to be away from them I see them as often as possible and communicate regularly.  I miss them with every ounce of my being despite knowing this choice would ultimately be the best for their mother…and everything about my departure centers around my family ultimately living under one roof. 

My reasons for being.

My reasons for being.

Currently I am living with somebody so very special [see paragraph below] and his family.  They were kind enough to open their home to us, consistently going above and beyond to make us feel welcome.  I accepted a job offer, do freelance writing from the computer, and am still looking for an additional opportunity.  Things are looking up as I work closer towards my goals of a vehicle and residence.

Sloane + Joey

Meet Joey / Jojo /Jojo Dancer /Wyatt Earp.  These past few months have been spent as his significant other.  My love for him knows no bounds.  We’ve known each other for several years but recently reconnected.  I don’t think they make words to explain what this man has done for me and what I feel for him.  But I will attempt to try at a later date….

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,



About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
