Subject: A little update on our Regretsy feature
The man in that photo is my husband.
I mean, he WAS my husband.
He was MORTIFIED when we were featured on Regretsy. I tried to tell him it was all in fun. You have to have thick skin if you want to sell online!
The more I tried to placate him, the angrier he got . . . until he walked out the door two days later. I haven’t seen him since (though I did hear from his lawyer when he filed for divorce).
It wasn’t the first time he refused to talk and just walked out the door, but I made sure it was the last. I told him not to bother coming back this time!
I bet you I’m the FIRST Regretsy-inspired divorce! Even so, I’m still laughing over the whole thing. It actually helped end a terrible marriage that I had been looking to get out of for over two years!
Forever a fan,
Even in divorce court,

I had no idea that I was featured again, and that people would be curious as to how things are going. Thank you!
So here’s your update:
The divorce was final last October. I got the house in the divorce, but he has yet to sign the Quit claim deed so I can sell it and return home to my daughters in Idaho.
He also took the car. But being without a car in place where you know very few people has its benefits. I have dropped four sizes now and feel better than I have in years!
It was painful at first, especially due to the circumstances he left me in, but now I am just grateful.
So there you go. Life is not totally on track, and definitely not where I thought I would be at 45, but I’m optimistic. And I’m working on a large project with Emily Balivet, and this alone makes me feel like my future will be brighter. It is a total honor to be working with an artist of her caliber.
Our love to you all, and thank you for keeping us in your thoughts!
