Life After Us
Life After Us is a series that I'd created in the 14 days that followed after my ex-husband and I had sold the house that had been our home for the past 6 years.
On June 17th, I locked the back door for the last time. I let myself out through the yard, past the peonies about to bloom for someone else, and went out the garage door. I watched as it closed behind me.
Two days later, I boarded a plane headed towards Tbilisi, Georgia, where I roamed unfamiliar streets feeling shattered and new. It was if the axis of the world had shifted.
On that trip, I finally gave myself the permission that I didn't even know I was seeking: the permission to just go out and live.
