I’m Bridget.

Not really. That’s not really my name but if I could have named myself, I would’ve picked Bridget. It’s bold and fiery and fearless, exciting, brave, adventurous, and confident! So for all anonymous purposes, that’s how you will know me on here.

This blog is all about my tango life…the highs, lows, surprises, intrigues, mysteries, questions, revelations, and new experiences. It’s all astounding to me and I’m inviting you to be a part of this story. There is joy, discovery, wonder, and heartache…..all things necessary to living life. See what resonates with you! I would love to hear your stories and adventures. Don’t hesitate to share in the comments of each post – you can be anonymous, too, if you’d like!
