Childhood Sweethearts

 September 16, 2019

They met in grade school, exchanging insults on the playground. He pulled her hair. She stuck her gum on his seat in school, where it neatly lodged on his pants. They were together in high school, sharing triumphs and disasters, hopes and dreams, romance and heartbreaks, always remaining “just friends.” Then they went away to […]

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, and when attending one of the many Irish Festivals popping up all over Michigan.

Mackinac Bridge

 September 2, 2019

 August 12, 2019

Her husband regales the kids with the story of the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes as they drive, much as her dad had told her. They climb the dunes, up and down, then she sits at the bottom with the baby as he climbs up and down, over and over, and beyond, with the older two. […]

Sunrise Over the Lake

 August 5, 2019

Honeymoon at Lake Huron. We walk along the shores, swim in the waves, watch the sunrise while sipping coffee. Gulls swoop down looking for tidbits of food. Rays of pink seep through the clouds until the sun bursts through in a flash of glory. We skip back into each other’s arms. Day has begun. Our […]

Endings and Beginnings – Marriage Moments

 August 1, 2019

This past month, Marriage Matters Jackson closed its doors. I’ve been part of this organization for more than twelve years. Over the years I’ve served on the initial advisory committee, chaired the religion and faith subcommittee, volunteered at many events, and served on the board for seven years. I also wrote two short books of […]
