I’m new to this. Blogging. Being married. Living away from home. Living in a different country. Living with a boy. And somehow it’s all happened to me at once. I’m laying it all on the line as I discover my life as a stay-at-home wife here in sunny Florida.

I met two new friends and watched their bewildered WTF expressions as I introduced myself as a housewife. They both insisted I give that up that title. Strangers have an uncanny ability to say the honest shit to your face your friends and family have been choking back for months. Their immediate rejection of my housewife life sparked something inside me that I haven’t been able to ignore since.
