First of all, my husband Wally retired from being a financial advisor. Not being the type of person to sit at home, he decided to coach children in the First Tee golf program. And being a fitness buff, he also became a certified fitness instructor that qualifies him to work at the YMCA. He has also gotten some specialty certifications, including one to help golfers stay fit. I'm super proud of him and the way he continues being productive.

Both of my daughters, Alison and Lauren, are in good marriages with wonderful men. Alison and her husband Jason have the sweetest little girls, Emma and Sophia, and they live in North Carolina. Lauren and her husband Ryan have been married a year and a half and they are still enjoying being a couple and their new hometown in South Carolina. Wally and I go up to visit them every chance we get.

I'm happy about the direction of my career and how much has happened recently. My agent Tamela Hancock Murray has kept me super busy, so of course I'm grateful for her. I've also become the Etiquette Guide on About.com. If you'd like to read some of my articles, go here and click around: Etiquette.
