5 Decorating uh-oh’s and a pinch of marital advice

I’m not a professional decorator or stylist…nor do I play one on TV. I just like to be creative.

Five signs your marriage may be destructive

When disappointing becomes destructive

I always tell my coaching clients, no one gets all 52 cards in a deck. What I mean by that is there is no “perfect” man or spouse.
