Two very important anniverseries

When Mike and I first started dating, I sent him a copy of a story I was trying to publish. I was really proud of it and I didn’t understand why I wasn’t hearing back from any publishers. Mike read it and pointed out the areas that could be stronger. I’m not going to lie, I was hurt at first, but then I was blown away. This guy had the guts to tell me the truth, the brains to offer great suggestions, and enough faith in me to know that I was capable of so much more. I decided I would never let him go.


Couples that dance together stay together!

On Monday, we celebrated our 5 year anniversary of meeting. We met on After emailing back and forth for a week, and then talking on the phone for hours, we met in person at a little cafe in the West Village. I was taken by his big smile, and his willingness to talk about everything you’re not supposed to talk about on a first date (politics, religion, sex, money, you name it). Before the date ended, he asked me to go with him to the Middlesex County Fair in New Jersey. We had our first kiss on top of the ferris wheel: it was the kind of date I dreamed of as a little girl.

Two years ago, Mike told me to stop procrastinating and just start a blog already. After hemming and hawing for weeks, I finally posted my first ever Heso Project entry. I cannot believe I’ve been blogging for two years now. First, I can’t believe I have so much to say, and second, I can’t believe people are reading it 🙂 I owe Mike a huge thanks for his encouragement.

Happy 2 year anniversary, The Heso Project!



  1. Congrads. May you have many more anniverseries. My wife and I will be celebrating our 43rd. in April. It goes fast. Make sure you mark the days with much celebration.


  2. You wrote that no one contacted you on your writings. You are talented and I am sure one day it will happen. I too am looking for someone to get me out there. I just do not have the inclination to play the game that is necessary to get published. I know it is crazy but I like to write and do not want to go in circles playing the publisher game.


  3. Good for you, for both of you. My husband has proven to be very good at helping me come up with ideas when I get stuck on a writing project. It’s so great to have that kind of support.
