I appreciate your candidness.

This is my second marriage, too.

The last decade has been a blur for me: three children born, one miscarriage, post partum depression, 4 moves, deaths of beloved grandparents. I think I went numb.

I'm ready to feel life, again.

Here's to the next decade and the ability to handle anything that comes our way with faith, style, and class!
