4 Steps to Successfully Navigate “Newlywedness”


First and foremost I am not a marriage expert and I have far more to learn than what I already know.

Yet, in the twelve days I’ve been married to the lovely Mrs. Heidi Cady, we’ve already overcome some fairly hefty hurdles with ease and, on her part, grace.
