Recent property reappraisal

I recently received my updated property appraisal notice and was quite surprised. I was surprised with the reassessment because the value is higher than previous years.

I didn't marry my soul mate, Part 2

About a year ago, I wrote an article titled, "I didn't marry my soul mate." I was very honest about a period of time in my marriage when both of us wondered if we had chosen incorrectly and even if we had settled.
