Wonder & Sundry is written by a Happily Single person, and this is an overarching theme here. However, these posts and topics are specifically related to the Happily Single life.

Explore Happily Single

What is Happily Single? It’s celebrating the life we have and the richness of it, no matter what our relationship status may be. We live whole and full lives, right now, not waiting in a holding pattern for “real life” to begin. We honor our choices. We love our company. We travel the world. And we cook damn fine dinners, just for ourselves.
