Happy Birthday Affaircare Blog!


One year ago, I began in earnest to write regularly on the Affaircare blog.  I began the year with a bang, writing eleven posts all about Christmas, rekindling love, Her Christmas List and much more.  And here we are, one year later, still blogging along and once again right in the middle of the Christmas season.  Isn't this just the perfect time of year to celebrate a rebirth?


Affaircare was actually born in June of 2007--that was when I first went onto blogspot and reserved the name and picked out the blog's design and whatnot.  At that time I was several years past my divorce, I had moved to Oregon, and Dear Hubby and I were married.  I had just ended my job as the Administrator for a large political party and was just beginning my work-at-home career, and while I was working-at-home I had a crazy idea to start a website and a blog to help people survive the trauma of infidelity.  I came up with the name "Affaircare" because we give people care after an affair!  Seriously!  Isn't that funny?  Still when I first began working-at-home I was very focused on the job and did not yet quite envision Affaircare as a ministry, so I put it aside for a couple years as I grew my home business and did some additional training.  


I'm not sure what "possessed" me in December last year to really begin a more dedicated approach to Affaircare, but I had an inner passion for the topic and for helping couples--especially when I know what it's like "in the trenches"!  At first you lose your mind--then everything you thought was dependable is destroyed--and it seems so hard and hopeless!  Well, I knew a way through...and a way that often leads to reconciliation and if not, a way that leads to recovery for the individual.  A way that leads to a stronger, happier, more intimate marriage.  See?  I had to share that!  


So one year ago we began to post regularly, and as I posted Dear Hubby joined in more and more...we had guest posts...and here we are today!  


Want to help us celebrate?  We're going to review some of our FAVORITE posts from throughout the past year, and share some of our hopes and goals for the future.  How about you?  What were some of your Favorites?  Where would you like to see on the Affaircare blog?  Do you have a question you'd like us to write about?  Want to just say "Happy Birthday"?  Here's the place!
