I was so excited when Alex offered to contribute to this series. Guys this is well worth a read. Thanks so much!

About a year ago my husband and I were in the midst of the hardest season we’d ever experienced, and I found myself living in another’s home in a desperate attempt to salvage what little of “me” I had left.

When she told me her topic I was so excited, and after reading it I can tell you that it has surpassed every one of my expectations. Do enjoy it.

I remember when I thought 30 was forever away. Now it seems as though it was last week in this life that keeps propelling forward at a rate somewhere between feverishly fast and awkwardly slow. Here are 30 random things this gal has learned (or is still learning) in her 5+ decades of living.
