ABOUT THIS BLOG & MY STORY

    Hi Beautiful Friend!

    I've weathered the terrain of my teens and twenties and hope to share with you my successes as well as my lessons of humility. I'm now 35, haven't dated in over 15 years, but through God's grace, I've led an incredibly adventurous, destiny-fulfilling, romantic, and blessed life. What wait? Did she just say romantic? But hasn't dated in 14 years??

     I know, I know--it sounds so bizarre. But I've led quite the romantic life while being single and dateless.

     Romantic in the sense that I've been able to enjoy great guy friendships where I was honored and loved (platonically) and greater than that--I've had the romance of God in my life.  His pursuit of us constantly amazes me. So yes, I LOVE romance, and just because you're single doesn't mean you don't get to experience it in your life.

     Meanwhile, the journey has been interesting...okay, let's be real, it's been ugly-cry bad at times, but God's kindness has covered me, and I have not grown bitter or weary in the waiting of my own romance story, but have been filled with hope to believe for it. But I must warn you, I often get more excited about the love journey of others than I do my own!

     So here I am. Standing in a place of vulnerability for both you and I. I want us to make it to the very end--to finish well, and to know love like we've never known it before. #keeponbelievingevenifitbreaksyourheart

     My heart is to continually encourage others and believe for the impossible.

     I invite you to journey with me, as I prepare for romance, face challenges and defeats, choose purposefully to love God and expect an array of triumphs, while enjoying every moment of this blessed and crazy life.


     "You're never alone." - God


Love,
Patrice

P.S. "Puerility" means: The state or quality of being a child

Often "Puerility" and "Puerile" have negative connotations, much like singleness. But I saw this word in a positive light, a journey that all of us are on--growing into beautiful maturity, but with the eyes of a child who believes that good things still happen, and it's okay to be silly, to cry, to laugh, and to have a good sense of humor along the way.
