My husband, the great sport

As I prepare to launch my new website (tomorrow!), I can't help but think of my husband. Alex has believed in me from day one—always supporting my dreams, pumping me up when I feel lost, playing editor when I'm stuck. He's a big part of why I'm still here, blogging (and believing). And really, I couldn't do this work without his blessing, because I simply would not be an effective writer if he didn't allow me to pull him into my TMI world.

You see, it was Alex himself who once told me that I had to be willing to be one hundred percent honest if I wanted to be a good writer. He pushed me to write from a much deeper, more compelling and relatable place inside me than I had before….and in so doing, Lola's Child was born. The beautiful thing is, Alex had to really put himself out there in order to give me that advice, because being honest as a writer means sharing some of our most intimate moments with the world, which he has graciously allowed me to do. He has given up a large chunk of his privacy (and allowed me to embarrass him at times) so that I could have this dream to believe in.

So, thank you, dear! Thank you for believing in me more than I believe in myself at times!


The new site is coming! Stay tuned….
