Smitten with Him

grown-up stuff happens here sometimes

Someone

It’s possible he won’t like that “Someone” is the name I chose for him…

We’ve been conversating through my blog for quite some time; it was right before my skate trip to Dallas when we exchanged numbers.

He came to my hotel one evening while I was there and we met in the lobby.

We chatted for an hour or so. I enjoyed his company, he was handsome, gentlemanly, very intelligent…

I actually wondered why he didn’t try to kiss me, but I figured it was meant to be a platonic friendship and that was totally alright with me!

Sex messes things up for me anyway, and my 21-year-old daughter was sleeping up in our room… There wasn’t much we could have done.

“I Am”

I love this entire album by Christina Aguilera, but this song always warms my heart.

(I needed very much to feel special today and Mr. X really helped this morning – thank you, Sir ❤ )

I hope you enjoy it, too

I am timid and I am oversensitive
I am a lioness, I am tired and defensive
You take me in your arms and I fold into you
I have insecurities, you show me I am beautiful

Love me or leave me
Just take it or leave it
It’s not that I’m needy
Just need you to see me

Take me, free me
See through to the core of me
Take me, free me
There will be no more pretending

I am temperamental and I have imperfections
And I am emotional, I am unpredictable
I am naked, I am vulnerable
I am a woman, I am opening up to you

Love me or leave me
Just take it or leave it
It’s not that I’m needy
Just need you to see me

Now I stand before you with my heart in my hands
I’m asking you to take me just the way that I am
Please lay down your arms, do you know me?
Make me feel safe from harm

I am temperamental and I have imperfections
And I am emotional
There will be no more pretending
