“My passion is motivating
couples to find a love
as functional as it is strong”

I’ve been a south side Cubs fan since age 2. Because my parents didn’t have cable, I grew up watching the Cubs on WGN with the only fan in our household, my great-uncle.

Brene Brown from Daring Greatly: “I define vulnerability as uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure … Waking up every day and loving someone who may or may not love us back, whose safety we can’t ensure, who may stay in our lives or may leave without a moment’s notice, who may be loyal to the day they die or betray us tomorrow – that’s vulnerability. Love is uncertain. It’s incredibly risky. And loving someone leaves us emotionally exposed. Yes, it’s scary and yes, we’re open to being hurt, but can you imagine your life without loving or being loved?”
