Wine Is No Longer A Part of My Narrative

I remember the general time period when I started to question whether or not my husband and I were drinking too much, too often. It wasn’t one incident in particular, rather a group of them. It was Easter Sunday several years ago when I walked into a back room at my in law’s home to…

Mark Your Calendars

My next book is coming out, in exactly one week. One. Week. That’s seven days. And since I’m posting this so late in the evening, many of you won’t read it until tomorrow, making that LESS than a week. Exciting stuff, I know. So at the mark of the one week countdown, I am thrilled…
