I live a simple life as a bookshop owner in the quaint town of Forest Pines. I may be fabricating the truth. My life is far from simple.
I have three children, one husband, two cats, two employees, one sister, and a partridge in a pear tree. A box from an estranged family member recently arrived at my shop, and opening the box scares me to death.
Join me, Margo, in my journey of self-discovery and healing as I battle my inner demons over, The Box.
I have a question for all the single ladies out there.
Have you ever received flowers at work with a card that was signed, "Love, your husband"?
No? I'm the only one? I figured as much. This doesn't seem like an everyday occurrence.
My name is Kennie, and I'm single and ready to mingle. Who am I kidding? The closest thing to a date I've had in months is my frequent trips to the local candy store. Nonetheless, the single life changed for me in the blink of an eye.
I was minding my business at work, sitting at my desk, glaring out the windows, when a delivery guy strolled in from the local florist. He carried the biggest bouquet of flowers I had ever seen, and to my surprise, they were for me.
I thought maybe I had a secret admirer until I read the card, "I finally found you! Can we meet for coffee or dinner? Love your husband, Kevin."
From that moment forward, I instantly became a married woman, and my life spun out of control.
Have you noticed that one "over-the-top" mom at school who you know is a stay-at-home mom but always wears makeup, jewelry, and high heels to drop her children off in carpool?
You know, the one who looks like she would rather be at happy hour but attends every PTA meeting, event, and volunteer activity?
That mom is me, Leaha Singleton. Welcome to my not-so-glamorous life.
I have lived this glamorous lie for quite some time now. That is, until a couple of weeks ago. Saying that my past has finally caught up with me is the truth, but an understatement.
My life has begun to change! And it all started when I ran upon two secret cabins.
The Leaha Singleton roller coaster is on fire, so have a seat and strap yourself in tight.
