Wow… It’s been a while – like a long, long while. Thanks so much to those of you who are still stopping by. I really do appreciate your readership, and it’s for you that I’m writing this post – quite possibly the hardest blog post I’ve ever written.
Back in January, when I said I was going through some not so fun stuff, I wasn’t joking. The first month of this year was probably the hardest month of my life so far, and because there’s no pretty or nice way to say it, I’m just going to be straightforward with all of you.
In December of last year, Mason and I decided to get a divorce. We agreed that we weren’t right for each other and felt it was best that we each go our separate ways. While great friends, our relationship was missing some of the key elements a marriage relationship needs, elements that we felt we had worked on with no progress over our years together. After some tough conversations, we agreed that we would separate in the new year.
During the last few months that Mason and I were together, I started spending time with someone I had known for a while, but had never really spent time with before. His name is Jon, and he quickly became very special to me. When Mason and I decided to separate, I made the decision to move to Kentucky where Jon is stationed in the Army at Fort Campbell to see where our relationship might go. I made the move in mid-February, and I am happy to say it was the absolute best decision I ever could have made. Even though it's only been a short period of time, I know without a doubt that Jon is the partner in life that I always wanted but never thought I’d have, and every single day that goes by, I feel so lucky to be with him.
I know that this is A LOT to take in. Believe me. It has been A LOT for me to work through, so I can only imagine how it feels to read about it all at once. If I have disappointed or upset any of you with this news, I sincerely apologize. Situations like these are never easy, but I am confident that I made the choices that are right for my life, and I hope that you will understand and trust my judgment. I look forward to getting back to regular blogging (I have so much to tell you all), and I hope that you’ll join me in reading. If you have any questions about any of this, feel free to ask them in the comments. I’d be happy to answer them and provide any additional info that you might like to know. You guys mean the world to me. You really, really do. And boy, have I misssed you!
