The last time we conversed with Brenda Boitson, it had been just ten months since she lost her husband Kevin to sarcoma cancer. She spoke candidly about her struggles as a young widow, where her community had both supported and failed her, and how blogging had turned from a means of communicating with family to a way to process her grief and connect with others in similar situations.

We invited her back, now a little over a year later, to tell us what it has been like re-entering the dating scene, evolving her blog, and working on a memoir.

The amount and depth of wisdom Brenda has to share is simply incredible. It was great to be able to sit down and listen to her insights and reflections at length, and we’re pleased to be able to share that conversation with you.
