  • Getting to Know Myself: My latest article at Over the Moon Magazine
    If there was a soundtrack for the spiritual awakening in my early 30’s, it would sound something like Eye of the Tiger.

      There's nothing ordinary about you.  Your life may be. There are empty milk jugs and oil changes and piles of socks to match.

  • I Got You, Babe.
      I knew I loved my husband the very first moment I saw him. (Yep, it’s one of those stories.) He was singing. I was eighteen, a freshmen in college, and had a star-sized desire to follow my heart. After a million beginning and ends, two songs of our own, and fifteen trips around the sun, I’m so glad I did. “Marriage should be...
