My mom would have turned 65 on May 30th. Sharing my birthday week with her used to be very exciting when I was younger. Now, it’s the worst thing ever. May is a hard month. My parents wedding anniversary was May 18th and then her birthday, followed by mine. I just feel blue and pissy. Over […]

Warning: This post may be nauseating to some people owing to its focus on marital bliss, three years in and seven years on, since I met Sid, the type of guy my father always dreamed I would marry.
