Wedding Dress Bookmarks

One of the 101 uses of my ex-wife’s wedding dress in my book is bookmark.  I used the dress as a bookmark for a book I used to help get me back in action – “Date Young Women – For Men Over 35.” With the books I am giving away I am including bookmarks cut […]

TGIF = Thanksgiving Is Friday (the blended family way)

I just wrapped up an insanely busy Thanksgiving weekend. I am exhausted, but am reminded of how much I have to be thankful for.

Past Due Book Giveaways

Before and After

Back to School – and Wedding Dress Tie Down Tarp

Ahhhh yes – this week my kids returned to school. And that, I hope, means I can find my routine again. The summer my ex-wife moved out 2 years ago was a complete train wreck. This summer was easier but still full of challenges – especially for someone who doesn’t look that far ahead in […]
