I am a 30-year-old wife, mother, and lawyer currently residing in Chicago. I grew up in Oklahoma, went to St. Louis, Missouri to study law, and then moved to Chicago to begin my career. Along the way I married the man of my dreams and gave birth to two beautiful children. On paper, it would seem that I’m living the dream.

But that’s just on paper, and paper is thin.  Only fairy tales end happily at the point where Prince Charming marries Cinderella (or, you know, however that story goes). My life is far from its end, and I have far more chapters to fill.  This is the story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down, so I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there ahem, how I’m going to fill those chapters. (Sorry, I, um, have music breaks from time to time…)
