What’s love got to do with it

Aug 29, 2018 | Posted by in Being Poly, Everyday Jade, Wicked Wednesday | 9

I’m feeling contemplative today. The other night, after unpacking from the weekend and doing my Sinful Sunday post, I laid in bed and thought about my life: where it was, what I had wanted; where it is, what I want now. I wrote this to Vipelr: “I’m trying to figure out the life I want and it’s not always the life I have and I wonder if I just settle for the life I have because I know I can’t have the life I want.” I’m trying to figure out if I really feel that way – that I am settling for what I can have, because I can’t have what I really want – or if that is just something I a) have told myself for so long that it’s become “true” in my head, even if it really isn’t; and b) the thing I think when I amRead more …

Patterns & Light

Alone in San Diego, I saw this beautiful light through the window. I liked the way the pattern in the curtains echoed my curves… Check out who else is being Sinful this Sunday.

#ScavengerHunt Throwback Thursday – A New Series

Now that you all know about the genesis of the Scavenger Hunt, I feel like it’s time to start posting all the Scavenger Hunts that W and I (and oftentimes Ad) got, before W died, but that I’ve never posted. It’s been…hell…three years since he passed? Sometimes it feels like yesterday. And honestly, it’s still so hard sometimes, to look at them. To remember. But there are so many memories. There is so much joy. and I want to share that. I have to post them. I want to post them. Not so much for the notches on my Scavenger Hunt list (though okay, I will admit that I like that as well) but because… We did that. All those things. All the things his family would have denied. It was us, having fun, loving each other, thrilling to the challenge… Enjoying life. So. Here I am. I am goingRead more …


col·lab·o·ra·tion kəˌlabəˈrāSH(ə)n noun 1. the action of working with someone to produce or create something. An internet meme is a kind of collaboration. A blogger, a writer, an author, imagines a theme and creates a space where other writer/bloggers can post their own contributions to the theme: Sinful Sunday Wicked Wednesday Masturbation Monday Friday is Boobday February Photofest Kink of the Week Food for Thought Friday All collaborations. As is my own, the Scavenger Hunt. The Scavenger Hunt is a collaboration in more than just being a meme though (at least to me.) The Scavenger Hunt feels like…an heirloom, a legacy. It has been through several “facilitators”…other bloggers that have managed it and then, for one reason or another, had to let it go. I am only the last of these facilitators. I took over the Scavenger Hunt at a particularly sensitive time in my writing life: I had closedRead more …

Scavenger Hunting at the Lake

Aug 20, 2018 | Posted by in Scavenger Hunt, Writing About Kink | 2

More from my weekend with friends. It was a much-needed respite, away from the city, into the woods, beside the lake. It’s a busy recreational lake, with an eclectic mix of over-the-top show houses, with yachts and all the toys of the super-rich, next to little family cottages with fishing boats and kids in inner tubes. My friends have worked hard on their little piece of paradise, and I am so very fortunate that they open their home and their hearts to me. I am a city girl – I’d wither away without my city life – but I am also a country girl inside, the one that grew up in a tiny town in the mountains, swimming in mountain lakes, riding horses in the woods – and dreaming of life in the city without understanding how much I needed the woods and quiet and open water. I’m at peaceRead more …

Weekend at the Lake

Aug 19, 2018 | Posted by in Sinful Sunday | 9

I had a marvelous weekend filled with fun, friends, laughter, sun and big beautiful water – and a couple Scavenger Hunts. Because of course. This is one of the images that came out of the weekend. Not suitable for Scavenger Hunt, of course, but I kind of liked it. :-)     To see who else is being sinful this Sunday, kiss the lips below!  

Too Much Sun

Aug 10, 2018 | Posted by in Boob Day, Memes & Prompts | 7

I spent all day Saturday in a raft on the river. Even with a liberal application of sunscreen, I got a bit toasty, and since we couldn’t be naked, I got tan lines! First tan lines I’ve had since the melanoma. The “got too much sun” parts of me are almost the same color as my no-nipples!    

He’s Home!

Aug 9, 2018 | Posted by in Being Poly, Everyday Jade | 0

I see I’ve been remiss in my commitment to posting more often. I even had a pretty great image for last Sinful Sunday’s “With a Camera” theme. I’m so bummed I didn’t gather up the energy to post it. Or, you know, schedule it ahead of time. It’s not like I didn’t know for weeks beforehand that I’d be out of town on a float and cabin-camping trip with a bunch of lovely friends this past weekend. Boo on my (non) preparedness skills! That out-of-town thing was pretty spectacularly fun, by the way. It being sooo much fun is in part why I didn’t post the picture Sunday. I was HUNGOVER Sunday like a big dog. Not that I am proud of being hung, but for once I didn’t have any regrets for having got that way. I accepted my pounding head as perfectly reasonable payment for having an amazingRead more …

Twelve days between kisses

He actually said those words to me. Or, okay, typed them. But. I know, it’s not that freaking long. I mean, I really know.  I do not intend to imply that it’s anywhere near the kind of misery that people who have to endure weeks and months apart endure. Hell I was there when W had to go stay with his ailing mother for months on end. But… This feels different. I know, I know, I said something similar back then, when W and I struggled to stay connected through the long weeks of his absence. And, truth is, this is not the first time V and I have been separated for this length of time. It happened in the first 6 weeks that I knew him, as a matter of fact. But… This feels different. W and I had a very deep, very intimate D/s relationship. How I feltRead more …
