Hi, I’m Tonya and welcome to my blog.  I am a native southerner and ambivalent lawyer. My first incarnation as a blogger came about when as somewhat of a surprise to myself – and others – I reached a certain age and failed to marry.  Horrors!  Don’t worry, though, it didn’t kill me and I did get married.   I’m still exploring life as a new wife and newly minted stepmother while continuing my handbag obsession and being mama to two puppies.  Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the second half of my life and still pondering the choices I’ve made and the path those choices have created.  This is where I’ll share my thoughts on life, love, law, puppies and my never ending quest for the perfectly appointed home.
