My promise kept.
I have been telling stories through my designs for more than twenty-five years. Ten years ago, as my beloved mother-in-law was slipping away from us into the depths of Alzheimer’s, I started sharing our journey as random Facebook posts, referring to my mother-in-law as MIL.
To my surprise these little stories were wildly popular, so much in fact that followers and friends, including my mother-in-law encouraged me to write a book.
As a dyslexic this idea just about crippled me with fear, how could I write an entire book?
I believe in surrounding ourselves with people that are smarter than us, and that it truly takes a village to accomplish all great feats in life. My village rallied; they guided me well through the process while allowing me to preserve my own signature on the design of this very important story.
Life with MIL is a memoir thirty-one years in the making.
It is a story about a relationship that defies odds. A daughter-in-law and mother in-law aren’t supposed to be close; they are often rivals. Our story, however, is a story of friendship, respect, and unwavering love.
This is a story told through a compilation of heartwarming dialogue between myself and my mother-in-law; a brilliant writer whose mind is crumbling from this wretched disease. It will not only make you laugh and cry but will also guide you through this tragic disease with whimsy and humor
It is my pleasure to share with you the release of Life with MIL. I made a promise to my mother-in-law to share our story, she believed it would be a way she could help others.
Here is my promise kept.
