On Saturday, August 1st Jim proposed to me! I haven’t blogged about it for several reasons…I haven’t been able to find the exact words for it, I become emotional just thinking about Jim and the life we’ve had together thus far…and well, that’s enough for me to share about why.

For those of you who don’t know much about me I was married before. It wasn’t an abusive marriage in any way there was just something that wasn’t right. Something was missing. I just wasn’t happy.  I knew deep down in my soul we weren’t meant for each other. There were other issues going on in my life at the time that were playing their part in my failed marriage as well. Gratefully I worked through everything, was back on my feet and feeling confident. Feeling whole for once in my life. Before I knew it Jim entered my life. Well, we had worked together for several years but he was always ‘this guy’ at work to me and I ‘the married chick’ to him. Little did I know what a beautiful, caring, gentle and loving man he was (to everyone and everything). We quickly went from hardly knowing each other to knowing we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. Please don’t think rebound. That’s hardly the case. I’ve had enough happen to me in my life to know things happen for a reason  - no coincidences in life.

We have been together for 5 years and it certainly doesn’t feel like it. I can honestly say I have never been happier in my life. I literally have a knight-in-shining armor, a gorgeous 4 month old baby girl and a ‘I would go to the ends of Earth for you’ canine. I don’t know that I could possibly ask for anything more. The weird part is when Sophie was born I fell in love all over again with Jim. I saw him in a different light. Pre-Sophie I saw how wonderful he was with Cooper - Cooper adored him just as much back - but then I saw him loving Sophie more than life itself. I felt my heart swell even greater for Jim.

I am at such a wonderful place in my life and I really have Jim to thank for it. He is without question my soul mate and I am eternally grateful to be able to spend the rest of my life with him.

Jim and I
