A Very Personal Update

I have some sad news to share with you today. It feels very weird to have to do this at all, but many of you have been following along for close to a decade, so it feels right to let you know what’s going on in my life.

After 4 years of marriage, my husband and I have decided to go our separate ways. While Mike (and Dolly) have moved out, we are still extremely close friends and will continue to work together on my site, as we have been doing the whole time we’ve been together. We’re both excited to move onwards and upwards, and I’m so thankful that we have been able to end things amicably and with a lot of love.

Mike was a wonderful husband to me: extremely kind, thoughtful, generous, and silly in the best way. There is no one to blame for the end of our relationship, it simply turned out that we wanted different things.

Even though our relationship didn’t work out the way we envisioned, we both hold one another in very high esteem. Mike has always been an incredibly private person, and I have done my best to keep him out of the spotlight throughout our relationship. I’d really appreciate if you could allow him the space and privacy he needs at this time.

The sanctity of our marriage is incredibly important to me, and the details of our relationship are private, so I won’t be sharing about our relationship in any greater depth. Needless to say, we are the best of friends, we talk all the time, and wish each other all the happiness in the world.

This is a difficult thing to go through — especially in public — so I’d really appreciate your support and understanding as this process unfolds.

Love always,
