Happy Sugar Boogiversary, 2020 :)

Today I can’t help but do some more reflecting. 2020 has been such a fun thing for my brain lately - from the way the numbers repeat to the fact that it marks the beginning of a decade. My own nostalgia has brought me back to the dawn of the last decade. It was an extra special dawning of an extra special decade… In fact, ten years ago on this day, I built up the courage to make contact with a man who changed my little world.  You see… There was this cute single guy whose kids went to the...

A Welcome and a Farewell

Welcome to 2020! And welcome to my blog... This is my next chapter - and it feels fitting to toast a lovely farewell to the last decade - which is also a toasty way to share some of my background since I’m new around here. I guess you know my name is Alesha - so let me now tell you how the last 10 years of my life have led me here. Honestly, I thought I would have completed more of my goals in the last decade. But I never expected I would have been thrown off course by so...
