I feel like I’ve been on another planet for the past two months and although the travel and the adventures were wonderful, I am so, so happy to be home. Well, I’ve done my job. Wife 22 is officially launched and out there in the world and I am just starting to dip my toe into the waters of my new novel. This is my absolute favorite part of  being a writer. Starting from the beginning once again...

“For the first half of your life each minute feels like a year, but for the second half, each year feels like a minute.”
Melanie Gideon, Wife 22

“What was unspoken between us, what need never be explained or said, was that nobody would ever love us again like our mothers did. Yes, we would be loved, by our fathers, our friends, our siblings, our aunts and uncles and grandparents and spouses--and our children if we chose to have them--but never would we experience that kind of unconditional, nothing-you-can-do-will-turn-me-away-from-you kind of mother love.”
Melanie Gideon, Wife 22

“All I have to say is - run, dive, pitch a tent... Spend hours on the phone with your best friend.... Wear bikinis. Drink tequila. Wake up in the morning happy for no good reason.... Lie in the grass, dream of your future, of your imperfect life & your imperfect marriage to your imperfect true love.... Because what else is there? Honestly, there's nothing else. Nothing else matters.”
Melanie Gideon, Wife 22
