What I’m excited about this week!

Over the years my clients have told me repeatedly that I should write a book. My late husband, Al, said I had to write a book. My friends have encouraged me to write a book. So, I’ve begun my writing process with an audio book about marriage. It’s not a big book, but it is a book. An e-book, to be specific, along with an audio.   I’ve been working on this audio book all week so I could tell you about it today! It’s called

Making a Happier Marriage Today:
Ten Secrets for Creating the Marriage of Your Dreams.

I’m offering it, along with the e-book, at an incredibly affordable price. Click here to learn more.

What’s New?

I’ve been working on my audio project, getting my late husband’s Toastmaster speeches together so that I can record them. I don’t want his words of wisdom, hope, and inspiration to remain sitting in my computer. I believe the world needs Al Vásquez’s message and I intend to bring it out, dust it off, and offer that message to you very soon. I wrote about it recently and asked for your comments. I did get some wonderful feedback, which I really appreciate. That post is here.

Last Friday I celebrated Al’s memory and life with my new husband, Javier and you an read the blog post here.

My late husband’s musings on marriage

On the subject of marriage:

You and I are like two little kids walking down the same road. We choose to keep the same pace so that we remain side by side. We like each other’s company and, besides, walking side-by-side has the added benefit that when either one of us trips, the other is there to help. Isn’t that the whole point?
