Hey, Everybody!

Jon Newhall and I have been married for 35 years now. Two kids, one house and lots of rewarding jobs later, we seem to be in it for the long haul.

We got married late. We skipped our first marriages and went straight for the second. A strategy I recommend.

For more about how we wound up getting married, see “The Day She Popped the Question.”
