I’ve been married for 7 years, and having children definitely changed my marriage. Let me tell you how: I spend less time on my personal appearance.

Some of us are fortunate enough […]
Who knew that you could still struggle with “single parenting” when you are married? A couple is to raise children together- two combined: Isn’t that what we are taught? I am a control freak, I like things my way and I have been a single parent. So maybe you’re not single, but you are definitely flying […]

On June 21, 1952 my grandparents were married in sunny San Diego. 65 years and 8 kids later, they might just be the sweetest couple to ever reside in our glorious city. If you don’t believe me, just look for them strolling around hand in hand at the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park, which […]
