For now, enjoy another excerpt from Adventures in Online Dating, continuing from where we left off:
Points for the guy in the apron. “That is me…I mean, yeah. Yes...you’re right.
The smile never left his face, making the man even more irresistible in an infuriating sort of way, because she wasn’t technically here to see him and he was making himself awfully appealing. “Got another hot date lined up?” he asked, as though he had every damn right in the world.
Trouble was, she did have a date lined up, otherwise she’d happily camp out at the counter and stare at the pretty barista all day. As if somehow sensing her urge to ogle another man, her phone vibrated with a text from Collin, her date du jour, telling her he’d snagged a parking spot and was on his way in. “Bring on bachelor number three,” she mumbled.

So...yeah. About that curve ball. I unexpectedly lost my mom a little over a month ago. As many of you know, particularly those of you who read my posts regularly, my family means the world to me. And my mom was my dearest friend in the world. It's been extremely hard adjusting to this new 'normal'. I just try to take it one day at a time. I'm turning more than ever to friends and family, seeking comfort in their support and their cherished memories of my mother. Life will go on, as it does, and amazing things will happen. I'm sure I'll get married, have kids of my own, and accomplish things I never even dreamed were possible, but deep in my heart I'll know it's because Mom is here with me, loving me, guiding me, and giving me the strength to face every challenge that stands in my way. Thanks to all of you for the support, and for being such wonderful friends. Give your loved ones a hug today. xoxo
