All by myself.

A couple of weeks ago I took myself on a date. Alone. Just me. By myself. This may not seem like a major feat, but the pride I felt in walking into a movie theater, buying a ticket for 1, snatching up a soda and getting comfy for 2 hours in a dark theater gave me simultaneous anxiety and excited jitters.

I’m one of those people who typically prefers doing things with a friend or in a group to doing things alone. Don’t get me wrong, I almost always enjoy going shopping alone or taking on some other errand… but still tend to opt out of a lot of “me” activities. For my solo, romantic date I chose “The Vow”. It seemed to be just a tad too girly for Christian plus, ogling Channing Tatum is always a bonus regardless of the plot. I still can’t get the line about “agree[ing] to disagree about Red Velvet Cake” out of my head — or the impromptu art gallery  wedding for that matter. I snuck in a few chocolate chip cookies and loved the freedom to see what I wanted to see and go when I wanted to go.

Hello, lovely, er, me… let’s do this again sometime.

I'm a marketer, cook, avid bug hater, cupcake lover, hiker, klutz, and married lady living in the great state of Colorado... My name is Megan Stecker and I'm a Colorado native. That's right, born and raised. I currently live in Denver and work in Marketing. I love what I do and watching it impact my client's business. I love to cook and bake. A good glass of wine can cure what's ailing you as long as you drink it in good company. I love the outdoors. Hiking, camping, exploring... I'm in. I have two dogs, Ollie and Duke, and I treat them like a children. My husband, friends and family mean everything to me. I also, inadvertently, find myself in the midst of disaster on a regular basis.
