I am a Happy Wife. But if I actually believed the television shows, magazine articles or books out at the moment, I’d think the term “Happy Wife” is an oxymoron and the enjoyment I’ve experienced throughout these years together is an anomaly.

I’m not a stay-at-home wife, I’m actually the president of a real estate corporation, it’s subsidiary ValleyRentals.com and a former hotel general manager. I work long hours, as does Keith, but we continue to keep the fire lit in our marriage. I absolutely love being married and began wondering how many other wives there are like me. Learn more about Fawn here.
