I love my husband, but I’m in an emotional affair. I’m not sure how I let this happen. I’m a happily married woman, or I thought I was. A long-lasting relationship and a few children, what more could anyone want?...
This wasn't supposed to be my story. A failing marriage was never supposed to be an option and was not supposed to be my story. I woke up one day from a marriage fog and realized that for the...
One morning, I walked by the mirror a few months ago, saw my reflection, and didn’t recognize the person looking back at me. It sounds cliche, but I didn’t recognize the person in that mirror. I took a minute and...
Available vaccination has drastically changed my marriage. I jumped at the opportunity to receive my vaccine and felt empowered like I was doing my part to push society toward some sense of normalcy. My husband and I were on a...
“Never go to bed angry,” the old saying goes. I glare at my husband over the top of my laptop. I've just settled in for my evening work session to finish what didn't get done from the day. Dinner...

I don't like Halloween. Every year though, I sew until my fingers bleed and I plan coordinating family costumes. I don't like gravy. I don't like it so much that I forgot to register for a gravy bowl when...
I love a clean house, but I hate cleaning. I love an empty dishwasher, but I hate unloading it. I love folded laundry, but I hate putting it away. I love my kids enjoying playtime, but I hate picking...
High school sweethearts. Love at first sight. The most difficult relationship of my life, parenting aside. Today is National Spouses Day, and in honor of this day, I wanted to play a game. Two truths, one lie. I met...
  My husband and I met as 17-year-old kids working at a local chain restaurant. Our playful flirtation around the soda machine led to the first date that would set the rest of our lives into motion.  We went to prom...
