Today is my 39th Birthday. I am so excited to see what this coming year will bring.

Last year at this time I was married to a man who not did not value me or the vows we made. I was so sad and resigned to the fact that I was never going to have the kind of love that I wanted so desperately.

What a difference a year can make! Itís been a roller coaster ride but I am on the other side. Six months out from my divorce and so grateful to be in this place. Dating a wonderful man I trust 100% and he treats me like a princess. I have my own home, a great job, and wonderful family and friends.

My 18 year old DD graduated high school in May. She has moved thousands of miles away for school, but shows me so much appreciation and love that my heart overflows with joy every time I speak with her. 14-17 were pretty tough years with her, it is so amazing to see how she has grown.

Today, on the 1st day of my last year in my 30ís, I am claiming my new beginning. Iím not sure I would have made it through without all of the wonderful support I received from the amazing SI community. I am going to take everything I have learned from this site and my IC and do it right in the second half of my life. Thank you all so much!

Happy Birthday!!!!

Walk away from anything or anyone who takes away your joy. Life is too short to put up with fools.

Happy Birthday!!!!!


Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; theyíll scratch you up time and time again but in the end youíre 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.

Thank you for the Birthday wishes! Had the best weekend ever. My best friend rented a limo for my party and filled it with great friends.

We were chauffeured to dinner, then off to the local karaoke hang out. Stayed out till 3 a.m.!!! Saturday was a little rough but it was totally worth it.

Looking forward to seeing other NB'ers birthday fun throughout the year. HUGS!
