It’s been a minute. 

I’ve been across the country and back. A lot has changed but some things haven’t. Austin and I are no longer together. I’m working on my PhD, planning to finish it in the spring. My older daughter has started college, the younger is almost done with high school.

I’ve found someone I truly believe is the love of my life. Jack and I have known each other for almost four years now. We’ve been in a D/s relationship about two years, all of it long distance. I am owned and collared and he has had a huge influence on my life, helping me get through some of the hardest times of my life. 

Everything I learned about life, love, communicating, and kink from Austin, Tucker, Michael, and Chris is being put to excellent use with Jack. We share a way of being together that is so strong and comforting that being with him is like a combination of magic and coming home.

Maybe once I finish writing my dissertation I’ll come back here. Perhaps not. Either way, this bit of my life remains for those who might find it useful.
