My boyfriend of five years kicked off Labor Day weekend 2009 by asking me to marry him.  At the time it was the happiest moment of my life.  Nine months later though, despite telling me he loved me and questioning his decision, he broke our engagement.  As he walked out of our apartment for the last time, and out my life forever, I couldn’t imagine a more sinking feeling…until weeks later when I found myself trying to figure out how to survive a broken engagement.  And who I wanted to be following that broken engagement.

At the suggestion of my closest friends, I finally got off the couch, set down the glass of vodka and began to bang away on my laptop.  In the interest of new adventures and overcoming the potential to let my broken engagement consume me, I wrote my first entry for Unwedded Bliss.  In the aftermath of my almost-marriage and subsequent unknown and unplanned future, I knew there were bound to be stories of friendship, unexpected challenges and moving on.  Here they are…stories of the most trying (and maybe most exciting!) experience of my life.  An experience that may bring me to exactly where I’m supposed to be.  To my very own Unwedded Bliss.

(In case you’re joining us late to the party, here’s a quick look back, one year later, explaining why I keep writing and what exactly Unwedded Bliss means to me.)

Thank you for following!

    A friend of a friend suggested I read your blog, because it was inspiring and amazing … and it totally is. You’re a beautiful writer and you’re funny and witty … and to be all of those things after going through such a down-right crappy situation is nothing short of absolutely astonishing! Your ability to be realistic, truthful, and brave is incredible 🙂 Just wanted you to know that! I am loving your blog and look forward to keeping up with your journey 🙂

    Kate– I found you by way of Jill, and I have to tell you that while the root of all of this is every shade of bad, you are an incredible, inspiring, and downright funny lady. Keep writing. We’ll keep reading.
