If you follow me on , you know that as of last week (May 18 to be exact) I am an officially divorced woman! For those of you who aren’t over there, now you know, as well! After 19 months of paperwork hell, it is finally DONE. Joe and I exchanged congratulations via text afterward and all was well with the world!
So, what’s next? If you had asked me two years ago, I would have told you I would never get married again. My first marriage did not go as expected and frankly left me with little trust in relationships. It was very freeing to move out on my own, though, and being out of that relationship has done wonders for my state of mind.
David and I knew very early on that we had met our soul mates in one another. I was still a bit surprised, though, when I realized that I was certain that I wanted David to be my husband. We waited for the divorce to go through but when it became apparent that the process was going to take longer than expected, we gave up on being politically correct and got engaged anyway. It’s rare that a day goes by that one of us doesn’t propose to the other all over again. (Awwww…)
We’ve gone through several iterations of wedding plans but we are set now for September 5. My dress has been purchased, the invitations are addressed, and the cake has been tasted and ordered. It will be a small, intimate wedding with a backyard reception before we fly off to Italy for our honeymoon. I’m so happy to be leaving the angst of a failed marriage behind. I am so thankful that I feel healed now and ready for my life as Mrs. T.
