Greetings!

Hello everyone from SITS!

Blogging - no - writing has become incredibly important to me over the past 12 months or so and without all the support I've received through this amazing communication portal I would have missed out on insights, love, intelligence, opinions, strength, and humor from all of you. Which is why SITS is such a great idea and community, and I'm glad I stumbled across it several months ago.

Anyway, here are three posts I felt represented what I do here the most:
Most of my posts are of a similar vein, with the exception of this summer where I've pretty much lost my mind. Apparently, I'm not alone, so that makes it feel a little less traumatic at least.

And I apologize in advance for the language. I love all words and especially profanity. I've cleaned up the three featured posts, but I can't guarantee that other posts linked therein are profanity-free as well. Nor can I guarantee any others are, as well. There's just something so pleasurable and spicy about swear words; I can't stay away!

In any case, I hope you enjoy!

Jess

  2. Oh Wow, it looks like you are out there posting about the same time I am. I have only been blogging since the spring (I think)but this summer was a strange one for me too.

    The SITS has been wonderful if finding fellow girlfriends that do, feel, and think the way I do. I am excited about reading more of your blog.

    Have a great one! Congrats!

  50. Hi there Fellow Potty Mouth! The harder I try to rein it in, the worse it ends up when I eventually blow.

    I used to ride quite a bit, but haven't in ages. An aspiring dressage rider, I am/was. Ever been to the Rolex 3 Day Event in Lexington? Oh, bliss . . .

    Have a Happy SITS day!
