5 ways to be closer to your spouse

5 ways to be closer to your spouse

Are there moments you feel a slight distance between you and your spouse? Do you worry that distance means your partner no longer loves you?

Stepparenting: The good, the bad and the ugly

Stepparenting: The good, the bad and the ugly

There are no greater heroes than stepparents. A stepparent agrees (gladly) to fill another parent's shoes. Sure, the good part is being in a loving, committed relationship with your new spouse.

Why you should give away half of your closet

I spent the past six years having babies. Granted, there were short breaks interspersed in there, but I spent most of my time focused on pregnancy, infants and nursing. Not exactly an ideal time to start buying up a bunch of clothes, what with my weight bouncing up and down 40 pounds every other year.
