Three Days Three Quotes ~ Day One: Independence

Helen at HHC Blog has graciously invited me to join in this challenge. She did a beautiful job with hers. I hope I can do as well.

I struggled with a theme for this series for a bit. As I was driving around taking pictures of white houses on the 4th of July and thinking about a post for this week’s travel theme Independence I was thinking about my life. I had dinner with my best friend last Thursday evening. Our schedules prohibit us from seeing each other as often as we’d like so when we do it’s a frenzy of catch up time.

At one point she caught me off guard when she asked me “How’s your personal life?”
Personal life? What’s that? I wondered and so I asked her “You mean men?”

I thought we had covered this many times but I suppose she might think I would change my mind about my relationship status. I haven’t. Where would I even meet anyone, any way? I refuse to do the online thing ever again. I did it for ten years and I simply do not have time for all the BS that goes with it. I won’t take the time. I won’t make the time.

So I wondered have I become so independent that I have closed off myself to any romantic relationships? And is this going to leave me sad and lonely in my old age? More importantly do I care?

Today I would like to nominate Nancy from Nancy Merril Photography to take part if she hasn’t already and has the time and the inkling to do so.

See my facebook page to view all of the posters I have created from quotes.

  1. This is wonderful, Dawn. The quote, the photo, the story… I like all.
    I don’t think it will leave you sad and lonely… you have a whole world in your heart.

  2. Let old age look after itself, Dawn! Who knows what it’ll be like when ‘we’ get there 🙂 🙂 And I absolutely love your photo and quote.

  4. So an adorable photo and quote. It is hard being on your own. I know. In 2 1/2 years my son will move on and then I really am on my own. I am not really looking forward to it. But I am starting to get out and meet new people, only they are women but that is ok. Friendships are really important too.
