Just got married!

I got married in 1993, and just now in 2013. Ha! Just realized that.

I don't post much, so I don't expect any to know me, but just wanted to extend hope to the newer people here. I am NOT saying, "someday you will find your special someone." I mean, I certainly hope you do! But what I've learned through all this infidelity experience, and we hear it all the time, is how important healing is. I am at a very happy place in my life now, and I can say that if my new husband ever cheats on me, having gone through it before, I know that I can survive and even thrive after the experience. I am a complete person all on my own and do not NEED a partner. It is nice to have one, but I am my own soul mate.

I hope that doesn't come across as diminishing my new sweet, wonderful amazing, nearly perfect hubby, but I hope you get what I'm trying to say?

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Ha ha Threnody, that is a great idea! As it turns out, we are saving the reception til the fall, so now I may have to incorporate that idea!

It was just us and kids, no family or friends, as we just wanted to seize the moment.

I think I can, not this year sadly. He doesn't have enough vacation time to come with us. I'll be out there the week of August 11th, just fyi.

Thank you everyone for the congratulations!

I remember you when I first arrived at SI !

Congrats to both you and your husband !


It's my life now, my choices, my mistakes to make and my victories to celebrate. His choices made me free of liars and betrayers in my life. That is priceless.

I'm not here much these days but it is nice to pop in out of curiousity and see that one of the "old gang" has found their new happiness.

Congrats and the very best of wishes!!!

Actually, not really. He gets some knee pains. However, he has surprised me at 6 am at the starting line of one of my half marathons! (I don't know if I'd have done that?) He rented a bike and met me at various points on the course to cheer me on. Awwwwww!
