There’s a reason I’m telling this silly story… and it's not the outfit I'm wearing. I didn’t know when I got dressed that day, I’d blend in with the desert landscape that surrounds our home in Tucson! I wonder if when I’m at my home in California, I look like my backyard? Why do I have two homes? Because I married a man a few years ago who already had a place of his own on 3 ½ acres and…. his business is located in Tucson. People questioned whether a marriage could work that spanned two states. I’d say it does with the right kind of planning in our personal lives and businesses… plus, a little spontaneity thrown in (like the time I drove 6 ½ hours at night because I couldn’t stand another day apart… didn’t Celine Dion write a song about that?).
The reason I am sharing this story is that people often have preconceived ideas about what love is, and how it works. Well, we just had our 10th anniversary, and it just keeps getting better and better. I think keeping an open mind can give you the greatest gifts in life.
