She’s Engaged!

Hey guys, I’m sure you already know because most of you follow me on IG BUT last week on my Birthday I turned 45 and got ENGAGED all at the same time! Ohhhhh M G! I have to say I’m still a little shell-shocked, I look at my ring finger and still can’t believe I’m engaged.

8 years ago I was going through a divorce and I didn’t even want to be in a relationship much less have the desire to get married EVER again like EVERRRRRRRRRRR again….lol. My mentality was I don’t want to be married ever again. Honestly, I didn’t even want to be in a relationship which is probably par for the course after coming out of a 10-year marriage.

But truth be told I was never that chick that dreamt of being married.  I got married for the wrong reasons and stayed married for a lot of reasons but none of them equated to happiness.  When I finally got a divorce I literally felt like I had righted all my wrong from decisions I made in my 20’s. (that’s a whole nother blog post!)

We went to tech school together back in the day and then we both went on to live our lives,  we got married (to other people), had kids and I guess fortunately for us got divorced. Then HE messaged me via FACEBOOK after 10 years of not speaking to one another (isn’t that crazy).  That damn FB man, it will get you every time! LOL. We reconnected and started long distance dating (he was in NY and I was in AZ).

Being in my thirties with 4 kids and divorced I really thought that my chance of real love was over and I basically lived in that mindset for the first 4 years of our relationship.  Luckily he had a vision that was unstoppable even for a control freak like me.  He mailed me this SoulMate plaque the first year we were dating and as romantic as it was in my mind I was thinking…. this dude is seriously DELUSIONAL! LOL

He told me then that one day I would be his wife and I laughed and said: “I already told you I am NEVER getting married again.” I fought this man year after year. Fought the process and fought all his far fetch ideas (or so I thought) of us one day living together and ultimately being married.

“Needless to say 8 years later and ALOT of conversations about monogamy, my fear of marriage, the purpose of marriage, divorce rates, logistics, and parenting he proposed to me on the HighRoller at 550 ft in the air and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

She Said YEs | She's Engaged | Engagement Ideas | Cobalt Blue Off The Shoulder Dress | Fenty Sneakers| What To Wear With Cobalt Blue Dress | How To Propose | Proposal IdeasThe moral to my love story is never say NEVER and don’t give up on love.  If he could change my mind I know there’s someone out there that will give you everything you need, want and DESERVE too.  If a man comes around and you think he’s too good to be true, feel him out (don’t just blindly accept what he says), let him prove he’s THE ONE. He may just Surprise you in the long run.

P.S. sorry for the picture quality but one of the patrons of the HighRoller took the pictures when he proposed and sent them to me…. How nice of her was that! I am forever grateful that she captured this moment for me. Okay guys, that’s all I have for today. Hope you all have a FABULOUS week and don’t forget…

 

THERE’S ALWAYS TIME TO INVEST IN YOU!
