Looking for Love

At the beginning of every new year lately, I get this yearning to find love and I begin the search.  This year is proving to be no different.   I do know that I need to feel good about myself and also to be in a place in my life where I have the time to work on a relationship.  Well, there is no time like the present!  To assist with the "feel good about myself" aspect, I updated my wardrobe with a fashionable pair of skinny pants and stylish ankle high booties.  What lady that is looking should be without these, these days?   I am at that place in my life where I have the time to work on a relationship so I have opened my heart and I'm putting myself out there with hopes of success!  

I never believed in love at first sight and I still don't.  I am in support of love growing over time.  Call me old fashion but I favour a courting period, spending time together, becoming comfortable, learning and growing and ultimately developing something that is wonderful.  I am happy to report that I am having some success.  I am taking baby steps, I don't want to rush things, I am slowly but surely making progress.  This is my choice to go at this pace because I don't want to get hurt.

After already spending a few occasions together, having reached a somewhat comfortable place,  I took control and decided it was time to kick it up a notch!  The place of choice to do this was where I feel at home, in my playground.  What better view then this to get into the mood!
It was time to really see if there could be a loving relationship between me and my cross country skis!  The few occasions together where I have put myself out there, it was just me and my skis trying to find our own way.  Today, it was serious business, my first official lesson!  The lesson was beneficial in strengthening the relationship.  I can't report that there is a "love" yet but I'm feeling something more then just "like".  Let's say, I am in a state of "loke!"  I realize this relationship needs more work so have set up another courting period for next weekend.

I just happened to come across this photo on another website and there I am front and center.  I had no idea my photo was being taken or who took it.  If I had known, I would have looked up and smiled, after all, one of my goals is to always be smiling when I am out and about.
OH!  By the way, these are my new fashionable skinny pants...
...and these are my stylish ankle high booties!

  4. A great saga in which I was getting involved, even feeling a little pain, than excitement, waiting for the climax! Why ... of course there it is .. a gal's best friend, without a a doubt, can definitely be a new pair of properly fitted, hugable, light-weight, colorful and smiling xc skis ... allowing one to have fun, get completely wrapped up in the moment, secure, understanding the full extent of self-control in a cold and wooly wilderness where there's also sunshine everytime we look up! Enjoy and keep the reports coming my friend!Cheers, Karen

  5. LOL, almost had me too, just thought that you're sharing an awfully lot of information all of a sudden. My skis and I have a different kind of relationship - it's raw passion that got ignited at first sight.
