I want to update my friends on me and my life. It’s long overdue.

My life is amazing. I have been gifted with a wonderfully bright, creative, and loving child who fills my days with joy, noise, questions, inventions, and wonder. She’s truly a treasure and I am so thankful to have her. She brightens and expands my life.

The road I travel on as Alexa’s mother has had a few potholes along the way, however. Some of you may remember the miscarriages I had before her, as I wrote about it at length on my message boards. There was also a scary c-section and some complications thrown into the mix. If you knew me back then, you may also remember that I married Alexa’s father, who also happens to be my business partner. I am pretty good at writing about fun and happy things, but I struggle to write about my challenges. I resolve to change this.

To that end, I want you to know that I am no longer in a domestic relationship with Alexa’s father, and I haven’t been for many years now. I know many of you have either figured that out, or perhaps never even knew about it to start with (that’s how long it’s been now), but I still thought I should put it down in writing. The really good news is that he and I continue to work on our business together productively, and that relationship is solid. We worked long and hard on creating an atmosphere that would allow us to emerge stable. I feel very strongly that Alexa has a stable, secure home — I want her to have her dad in her life on a regular basis and not be caught up in confrontations or struggles that are not of her doing. And that is why I have been so silent on this subject. I needed to put the health of those relationships first. This was very much a “conscious uncoupling” (to borrow a phrase) that required time, patience, and sensitivity.

And now? I am happier than I’ve ever been. Life isn’t perfect — I have some health struggles at the moment — but I’m truly happy. My life is good and I am surrounded by love.

So whether you’ve known me for a decade or just recently met me, I hope this helps explain a few things about me. Thank you for sharing my journey.

  8. I read Your book Disney Cruise Line 2012 from cover to cover twice a week because it takes me to a happier place.I have been my moms caretaker since 2006 and although I love her and thank God she is still around she is starting to show her age(she will be 87 next month)and it is scary to see her age and get worse.

  9. Thanks for sharing – no one’s life is perfect!However, I am truly happy that you are happy – that’s really important. Especially when raising a child. It is a huge sacrifice and for you to open up (when you certainly have the prerogative not to). Always remember to take care of you so that you can continue happy & healthy relationships with others. You are always positive – don’t change! Take care!
