Marriage the second time around can be a dream come true. I am always inspired by couples who have the courage to give marriage another chance, and then find happiness.

“On days when our two bottle flipping fiends’ play room resembles a crack den (half-full bottles strewn everywhere), or homework anarchy reaches fever pitch, or I have been labeled “the worst mom ever” for demanding showers, I wait to hear your keys in the door.
