Snake and I tend to take quite a few short trips each year. Several to visit family as well as one or two that are just for us to get time to reconnect.Continue reading We Miss Traveling
Even as a kid I have always taken a lot of photos. We have boxes and albums of my photos and Snake’s photos. Digital just added to the sheer numbers because we don’t have to take them to be developed. And other than storage space, they are free.Continue reading Charmer’s Take on Photography
There are always so many myths surrounding D/s and FLR. So many come from books, TV and movies–they get it wrong so much more often than they get it right.Continue reading Myth Busting by Charmer
I’ve never been the traditional sports person. I know — I’m *so* traditional in all other ways. I did the ballet thing for a year when I was little, twirled a baton for a minute, hiked, tennis with my dad and Tae Kwon Do in high school. Yes, the occasional recital or competition, but nothing really.Continue reading We Don’t Do Sports, Do We?
Snake and I have been together for a couple of years now. Just a few. We dated, then we married and had a few date nights here and there. Life gets busy and you figure, “Hey, we see each other all of the time–we don’t need dates.”Continue reading The Importance of Dating
I’ve never really had the desire to travel back. Sure, who doesn’t consider what might happen if we change a catastrophic, or even personal, event? But I’ve always been convinced that somehow the same or possibly even a worse thing might transpire in the vacuum that I create.Continue reading Time Travel
The term regret always makes me think about my mother. She insisted that the only song that she had to have at her funeral was My Way. There were wrong choices and problems in her life but she always kept moving forward.Continue reading Regretting the Results
Love letters are sweet. They make you feel good and you can put them away and bring them back out again and relive that moment. Everyone likes to hear that someone thinks they are special and important.Continue reading Love Actions
Privacy has so many meanings. Having doors to keep others out when we need a little time alone. Journals or diaries where we want to keep our private thoughts. Knowing that your phone is not being read over your shoulder. Respecting online personas. And on and on.Continue reading Charmer’s Take on Privacy
I’ve never had what I considered a lot of friends. I’ve always been more of a few close friends and a lot of people who I like to do things with. They are casual friends but not the ones who would get a call if I needed something.Continue reading Friendship
When I started to think about writing for this prompt, I knew that my answer to “Is home a Place or Person?” had to be both. At least for me.Continue reading Home is Where You Love
The easy answer is that I know it when I feel it–but it isn’t that easy. It comes in a lot of shapes and sizes, some passing quickly, while others stay for a lifetime. They are all unique and yet…Continue reading What is Intimacy?
The Christmas piece of this prompt never really applied to me. Yes, we put out cookies and milk for Santa and got a gift on Christmas morning. And, yes, I was told when I questioned if he was “real,” that only kids who believe got gifts from him. But, it was always more of an embodiment of the magic of Christmas rather than a person so it never felt deceitful to me.Continue reading Bawdy Bells 5 — Lies?
*This was originally posted in December for Food 4 Thought but it fits in well with the current Book Matters. And it is a fabulous children’s book!*
I was so excited to see this prompt because I am a reader. I rarely leave the house without my Kindle and bath time is always spent reading. And it’s a great day when I can slip some time in during the day as well.Continue reading A Wrinkle in Time
Freedom is one of those words that seem to have as many meanings as there are people in the world. I think each one of us has our own definition and how it fits into our life.
Absolute freedom doesn’t really exist in my view. There are always things that impede on that even if you are alone. Eating is kind of important to me and I like indoor plumbing. That said, I decided to focus on freedom as it applies more to our blog.Continue reading Choose Freedom
There are good secrets and bad. The ones that excite you and you don’t want to spoil and the ones that you know are wrong.Continue reading The Secret Life of…Charmer
