I was recently asked to write for the NFL Women's Resource Initiative. This article will be my first monthly piece and I will also be answering write-in questions on the website about love and relationships. Because of the audience of the NFL's website, this piece is more NFL-centric than most of my blog entries. I'll be posting each of them on this site for my readers before they go live on the NFL's site. I would love to hear your feedback.
When my husband, Craig, was drafted to play for the Seattle Seahawks in 2004, we left our homes across the country to make a new home, together, on the West Coast. We didn’t know anyone in Seattle and really, we were still learning to love each other.
I spent months alone in our apartment, sitting on our rented couch, feeling sorry for myself. I began to resent Craig for taking me across the country far from the dreams of my own that I sacrificed for him.
