One year ago, my book, 101 Uses For My Ex-Wife’s Wedding Dress, was published. It is a combination of photographs of odd uses for a wedding dress and my story of getting through a really challenging time in my life.
I got the idea to start a blog when I inherited my ex-wife’s wedding dress after she moved out over three years ago.
I encouraged her not to leave the dress with me, but she refused, telling me to do whatever I wanted with it. Fortunately I could count on my family to find humor in a challenging situation, so when I told them I had the dress and asked them what I should do with it, they gave me offbeat answers. It was quickly suggested that the dress would make a lovely doormat and my brother thought I should wipe my a** with it.
