We’re all confessing to some really funny stuff and giving things away to some lucky onlookers. Confession: The most awkward part of writing my Losing It scene was when… I gave it to my husband to read. He’s my content editor. It’s natural that he read it. And it’s not like sex is, you know, foreign to us married people. Still, I was so worried he would hate it. … Read More
