My SO and I went to Cape May for a long deserved mini vaca. It was the first time we've gotten away in almost 2 yrs! Well, he proposed and we are engaged!!! Whole nine yards, called my dad, got a beautiful ring, and went down on his knee. I just love this man and how thoughtful, caring, and wonderful he is. We won't be getting married any time soon, our kids are coming first and are an hour apart and pretty integrated into their communities/school. And the other parents are where we each are living. So we are staying put until his son is driving to HS (2-3 yrs) and then we will get married and he will moving into my house until my kids are a little older. I know that we've had our trials (death of both of his parents) and less tragic stressors (our exs). He has done everything to reassure me about his boundaries w his ex and has included me with everything in his life (financial and logistical decisions). SOOOOOOO much different than my marriage, I have so much more hope!
Me - 42
2 kids, 9 and 11
D-Day 2/5/10, separated 3 wks later
