Secret REVEALED and Lean On Me...

My sweet husband has supported our family since Anna was born.

He made it possible for me to stay home...

... to care for Anna from the day she came home from the hospital and raise 3 great kids...

... to be home to care for him when he was diagnosed with cancer... surgery... chemo... recovery...

... made it possible for me to spend the time to become a scrapbook designer... internationally published... and teacher...

... and let me dive into my weight loss journey, training, and now follow my passion for triathlons and other races...

Jeff is AMAZING!  Yes, there are MANY REASONS that I want to be Jeff's Girlfriend, Again... and there are many different ways that I can accomplish that goal!  Times are tough, and Jeff has been holding the weight of this family on his shoulders for 7 years now.  We have had good times and bad times, but the ENTIRE TIME, Jeff was the pillar and let us all Lean on Him.  It is time that he can Lean on Me.  In marriage, we LEAN ON EACH OTHER... you know the song I'm talking about... Bill Withers', "Lean On Me." (find it over to the right)

This is the PERFECT SEGUE into my exciting news!  I have always LOVED to write and have been trying to find a way to make a living doing exactly that... and I have accomplished the first step in that journey!  I am the new "San Diego Love and Marriage Examiner" for Examiner.com.  I will be writing a column several times a week on topics relating to my journey here on "Becoming My Husband's Girlfriend."  If you have been following this blog, you know how much I have to say. :-)  My ultimate goal is to earn a living writing about this topic that I am SO PASSIONATE about!  I know I have many rungs to climb on this ladder, but as with my weight loss journey, I will take it ONE day, ONE opportunity at a time!
