It was a hot day in August, and both of us were young, and I particularly, fairly naïve. We've been through a lot together in the last thirteen years. We've … Continue reading Why My Husband is My Best Friend (And I Hope He Always Will Be)

In the last few weeks, I've made some realizations about myself that I'm not proud to admit--in fact, I haven't even told them to my husband yet.I definitely lack self-motivation. A lot.Now, if I'm in a time crunch, or my family's stomach's depend on it, I can get things done. But, even my writing suffers … Continue reading Self-observation
