I found this website by accident and have been pleasantly surprised at how helpful it has proven to be. I am not a first time bride, however, I have never truly planned a wedding. I met the love of my life two and half years ago and cannot wait to be his wife. That being said I was and still am completely unaware of how much goes into planning a wedding. I am slightly overwhelmed by all of the information that is out there but perhaps with the help of the members from this website I can pull it together in a years time. I am so looking forward to this experience and most importantly to being an amazing partner and friend to the man that I absolutely adore!
After feeling a little less overwhelmed since finding my way around, and by all of the warm welcomes; I felt compelled to post a little more about the main reason I joined this site. For the last 10 and a half years I have remained single. This was partly by choice but mostly by chance. I was married for nine years to my previous husband who I shared beautiful children with. The marriage ended and unfortunately shortly after he passed away from cancer. My mother passed away six months prior to his passing so I think for the next several years I was just pushing through the day like a mindless droid. However, time does lend to our healing and fortunately for me, I was coming out of the darkness just in time to meet the man I assumed only exsisted in chic-Flics ;-) We worked together for over two years before I finally...and accidently I might add shared my feelings for him. I always assumed I would be taking those thoughts to the grave with me and never thought I would be brave enough to share how I had fallen so deeply in love with him. To my surprise and sheer relief, he shared similar feelings with me and so it began! There has been a great deal of change for the both of us since I had to be transferred to a different division since you can't marry or date your immediate supervisor. That was extremely difficult since I was in the same position for 14 years and of course came to consider the individuals I was working with family. He was ABSOLUTELY worth it and I always tease him by saying he kicked me out of his office and into his life :) He has brought so much to my life and to the lives of my children. The man I prayed for, the man I promised I would take care of and love with everything I have inside...finally arrived! He is my entire world and I am so honored of his desire for me to be his wife. I look forward to sharing my experience with you all in addition to having the privelage of sharing yours.
