Mike and I have officially been living together for a few months now, and while it’s still glorious (s/o to the Roode crew, y’all know who you are) – I have to admit – it is not always easy.
Moving in together is a BIG step in a relationship, no matter how long (or short) you’ve been together. Before we moved in together, we were spending almost all of our free time together. We were together more often than not, spending nights at each others houses. But living together – phew, that’s a whole different thing.
Let me preface this next little bit by saying, I simply adore Mike. He is literally my most favourite person in the world. Being with him makes my heart happy and I love spending time with him.
That being said…a gal needs her alone time. Am I right? If you are, or ever have, living with a partner (or heck, even with roommates) you’ll know what I’m talking about. There are just some things that you

As someone who lived on her own for many years prior to moving in with Mike, I crave my alone time. It’s not even like I’m really doing anything in particular (for the most part) – but sometimes I just want to put on a face mask, paint my toe nails, and pour myself a nice glass of wine and listen to early ’90’s pop music. You know what I mean?
Anyways, that’s exactly what I did the other night while Mike was working late, and it was fanfreakingtastic.
My friends at Montes Wine sent me over a few bottles of Montes Spring Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2016 and Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 to try. I cracked open the Cab Sauv, poured myself a nice, big glass and covered my face with a charcoal mask as I painted my toenails.
