I Got Cinderella’d and It’s Not All Great

My husband and I come from two different worlds. He comes from a different stratosphere than I do. I don’t get along with his family, even before I ran away twice. They mistreated me while we were just dating, and I never really understood why until I looked at class differences and ableism. I canContinue reading “I Got Cinderella’d and It’s Not All Great”

It’s almost a month left until my wonderful, creekside spoonie wedding, and I’m left with some thoughts. Communication is hard. Love is hard. It can be scary.
