Just about six months ago, I gave the world an all-access pass to my life. I opened the doors wide and let everyone know the truth about the relationship that had then just begun.
The days that followed that post were difficult because I thought I was ready for the hatred that would ensue, but I wasn’t. Comments (that I still haven’t read, and never will read) were posted every few minutes, and I think I got over 400 views on that post in just one day.
It’s amazing how many people were so quick to jump on it and know all the details of my life. People that may never have cared a shred about what was happening before this, but who all of a sudden needed to jump into the conversation and make their opinions known.
But, despite those hurtful words and reactions, I don’t regret writing it. And, more importantly, I don’t regret my decision.
In fact, I am delighted to have proven all of those people wrong.
In the last six months, I have learned what true happiness is. I have learned what being unconditionally loved feels like, and I have given that unconditional love right back.
I have a man who would do whatever it took to make me happy, and do it with a smile on his face.
I have a man who tells me I’m beautiful and that he loves me more times a day than I can count; a man who makes me feel sexy, and wanted and all these things I never thought I could ever be before.
I have a reason for never wanting to get out of bed in the morning, but yet, a reason for always waking up.
I have found the person that my heart had always been searching for; that makes me feel whole.
And now, we are moving on with our lives together. We have been house searching, and found one we really loved. We are waiting to find out if we qualify for a mortgage and, if so, we will be putting in an offer!
Without getting too personal on his end of things, his divorce should be final very soon. Although we’ve been living like it’s been settled for a while, it will be a huge weight lifted off of both of our shoulders. And it will be a really great start to the new year.
Speaking of New Years, we are heading to Foxwoods (a casino in Connecticut) for New Years Eve and I am beyond excited. I never did fun, spontaneous things like that before, and I’m thrilled to have someone that will take these little adventures with me.
To wrap up everything that’s been going on – it’s just good. Life is good, I’m good, we’re good.
We’re both the happiest we’ve ever been, and we love each other more every second of every day. I find new things to love about him constantly, and his love is what keeps me going.
I can’t thank him enough for always being there for me, and for loving me the way he does. Every woman deserves someone like him, and I’m glad I was lucky enough to be the one that stole his heart. I’ll be living an amazing life from here on out.
No matter what hardships will face us in the future, we’ll get through it. People say that love isn’t everything, but I prefer to think that love conquers all. Because, with us, it does.
I wanna spend the rest of my life, with you by my side. Forever and ever. Every little thing that you do, baby I’m amazed by you. ❤
