Lauren's Guest Post: With Hope

Hi everyone! I'm Lauren from Life with a Lab. Alisha is off getting married and honeymooning (CONGRATS girl!) so here I am guest blogging! I got to know Alisha when I redesigned her bloggity, she is so sweet and I am so happy to be here.

I have to admit, when I asked Alisha if there was anything in particular she thought her readers would enjoy… and she said love… I kinda froze.  Like, deer in headlights, froze. I am a disaster in the love department. A train wreck might be a more accurate depiction of my experience with that little four letter word.

I had my first “real” love college. I won’t bore everyone with the sordid details, but Mr. T and I just were not meant to be… There were a lot of ups and downs to say the least. I spent all 4 years of college with him and it didn’t end well. And since him, well, I have not really been good at opening myself up to others – we joke that I am ‘dark and twisty’ a la Meredith from Grey’s Anatomy. I run at the first sign of seriousness or commitment. So yes, train wreck sums my love life up quite nicely!!

But here’s the thing. I still have hope. I know that someday, it will happen. I will meet Mr. Right. I’m just working on a different time frame, throwing myself into work, owning a business, travel… It may not be next week, next month, next year… But it’ll happen. I just have to be patient.

Thank you Alisha for asking me to guest blog, and I hope you had an amazing wedding weekend and are enjoying your honeymoon to the fullest!
