I know I've been MIA lately, but I'm back! Things have been so crazy, but in a pretty fabulous way... I can't wait to share my news with all of you! Until then, here's a fun look I threw together for winter to spring transitioning!
I'm wearing: Project Social T sweatshirt and printed skater skirt both from Nordstrom (Juniors department!!), Nine West heels, Jill Stuart purse, Madewell hat, Dauphines of New York headband worn as necklace from ShopBop.

Well that did not sit well with him. He immediately called into question how long our relationship would last. Of course that riled me up, so I informed him that he and I had every intention of getting engaged after we moved in together. His response? "Rebound."
He immediately apologized after seeing the apocalyptic look in my eyes. He then went on to say he was actually the rebound from my divorce. This annoyed me almost as much. As I've mentioned, sometimes I'm a Relationship Quantum Leaper. But why can't my relationships just be, why do I feel like I have to defend their validity?
I began to wonder what the phrase rebound actually meant. I think a lot of people feel like it simply means a relationship quickly following another with the implication that the new relationship makes you feel better about yourself. Personally, I disagree.
I think there is nothing wrong with dating someone quickly after another relationship ends. Everyone talks about how you need to take time. But that's a very individual process that's different for everyone. And for some people (like me) it can be a very short amount of time. Secondly, EVERY relationship makes you feel good about yourself in the beginning. So a rebound needs to be more than just a new romance that makes you happy soon after a recent break-up.
I actually spoke with Comic-Con Guy about this and we came up with a different take on the rebound. We defined it as starting a new relationship with someone you wouldn't date otherwise for the main purpose of feeling better about yourself.
With that definition, I'm happy to report that I don't consider any of my relationships rebounds! Hook-ups on the other hand...

I had such am amazing Valentine's Day: ComicCon Guy flew in to see me! Even though we spent most of Thursday snowed in, our determined butts drove 60 miles out west from DC to one of the top restaurants in the country, The Inn at Little Washington.

So my darling friend Brandy is going to a cocktail party on a yacht in Miami and needs a white dress. But it's winter up here in the DC region and nary a warm party dress to be found!After dying of jealousy, I found a few options for her:
