I might have mentioned this a few thousand times before but in case I didn't, I need to tell you that I'm writing a book.

And even though I've already written a book? This book is really hard to write.

Not because I don't remember.

I guess because I do remember.

It's not fun to remember that my husband hasn't always been the Princiest of Prince Charmings. It's not easy to paint the picture of our relationship in such a way that you read it and don't hate him and actually want to continue reading it. Frankly, I don't want to think about all of this. I don't like thinking about it.

But yet, I don't want to lie. I don't want to mislead. I don't want us to be anything except exactly what we are. Because what we are is pretty awesome.

But what we were at one point? Not so much.

How we got from there to here, I hope, is pretty interesting. I just have to find a way to make you not hate us so you can get to that point.




This is not easy.

I look forward to reading about it! Everyone goes through terrible times! I cannot throw stones or hate y'all because we've all been through some crap. Good Luck and I look forward to reading your new book! :)

Oh, and Happy Easter!

Tricky indeed. You could include some sort of intro or prologue with a sneak peek at the ending, but that would ruin it, wouldn't it?

I told Mark that you were working on #2 (the book, not the bodily function) and that it was difficult.

We're thinking of you -- and praying that it goes well.

AND. .. I saw on FB that you're the "book of the month" on B 97.5? That's downright awesome!

I'm not going to hate you. Or him. I'm going to read it and know that whatever you've been through has made you the people you are today. And that? Is awesome. :)

We love Jason. We also know that relationships can be sucky at times and it is usually the guy's fault. Ok, ok, sometimes it is the guy's fault. You'll figure it out- I have confidence in you.

Nothing worth having is easy. I am amazed at how happy our marriage is now, but you know we went through some majorly un-fun times to get there. You and J have grown together and are at a great place, and that's an inspiration for people who are having a tough time. It's a good thing. Good luck with the book - I can't wait to read it! And we need to do lunch! I have a pristine copy of Meeting Mr. Wrong that SO totally needs to be autographed!!!!!!
