Unconfirmed Bachelorette, a/k/a Ella, is a
forty-something fifty-something lawyer who would rather be a writer. She heeded the advice of her parents, however, and got a business degree, to be followed later with a J.D. So as it turns out, she gets paid for her writing, even if it is only of the legal persuasion.
Unconfirmed Bachelorette has never been married, but she’s been engaged 1.5 times. She began this blog as a way of venting her frustrations with betrothed number two, which morphed into a post-mortem on the demise of that relationship. After blogging through the breakup, her writing would become an account of the pain and joy she experienced as she got on with the business of living.
She would learn the business of living includes dying. Three of her family members would die within an 11-month period: her 56 year-old brother in April 2012, her 83-year old father in October 2012, and her 52 year-old brother in March 2013. The blog would morph into a grief blog.
It would moonlight as an animal rescue blog. A travel blog. A photography blog. A sobriety blog. A financial independence blog.
A life blog.
Unconfirmed Bachelorette resides in Austin, Texas with her
two three fluffy, black rescue/formerly stray kitties, Sadie, Sally, and Sophie. She enjoys hiking and walking, and at long last has given up on further attempts to become a runner. She also enjoys cooking and copious moderate amounts of red wine sparkling water. And coffee. Really good (i.e., strong and black) coffee. And sharp knives, her favorite of which is her tomato knife. (Yes, she has a knife dedicated strictly to the cutting of tomatoes.) She also enjoys the use of incomplete sentences.
