Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

My thanks

I wasn’t planning on blogging today. But then I logged on, started reading all the Thanksgiving posts from friends and bloggers, and felt my own gratitude bubbling up. I’m usually so full of cynicism and snark, but now and then, it feels good to share my softer side.

Sitting here in comfy sweats and warm socks, classical music in the background, drinking coffee, and so, SO very grateful I don’t have to do a blessed social thing today. My introversion is in high gear, and solitude feels right. It’s so quiet here and I love it. I don’t have to put on makeup, blow out my hair, dress up. There will be other times in the future when I choose to go the social route. Today, I am deliriously happy on my own.

I’m so grateful for my friends — fellow bloggers, friends on FetLife and Twitter (and yes, even Facebook), party pals, tops, bottoms, switches — all of you! You feed my soul in ways you can’t imagine. You have given me a place where I belong, validation, acceptance and love. Thank you.

I’m so grateful for this wonderful, loving, giving, smart, complicated, goofy, maddening and adorable man:

And yes, even after 16+ years, I still can’t take my eyes off of him. 🙂 Love you, sweetheart, so very much.

Last but definitely not least, I am grateful for Mr. D. He hasn’t been in my life very long, but his entrance couldn’t have been more timely, helping me to heal from the loss of ST. But a replacement he is not; he’s his own man, a special top and friend to me in his own right, and I feel very lucky to know him.

I love this picture, and I wish I could show his handsome face, but I must respect his wishes. So, because I love having my neck sucked on, I chose this mask for him. 😀

All rightie then — the laundry isn’t going to do itself, and the pile of papers on my table isn’t going to proof itself. I’m off.

Love to you all and hope you’re having a happy holiday. Or, if you’re not in the U.S., happy Thursday.
