I met my husband really young, and we “took a break” (aka I broke up with him), and eventually (i think it was 3 whole weeks later) I begged him to take me back, and he thankfully did. Thank God I did or I wouldn’t have the wonderful life we’ve built together.

Studying abroad in England. I met my husband!

I don’t want to say my divorce, but it’s what really kicked off my personal initiative to get mentally, emotionally and physically healthier. Years of emotionally abuse took a toll on me and I wanted to figure out why I allowed that to happen for 7.5 years.
Lots of therapy and kicking myself to eat better and get more active has changed my physical and mental state for the better and I am the happiest and most fulfilled I have ever been in my life.

Choosing adoption when I had a unplanned pregnancy in my early 20s. I’m 100% pro-choice, but I was able to help friends who were trying to adopt. Also my experience with pregnancy (which I did not enjoy at all) helped me realize I have no desire to ever be pregnant again. I have since been sterilized. Both my husband and I are CFBC (he’d also been sterilized shortly before we started dating), and when I think of my life now with him, the hobbies I can devote my time and money to, and going back to school. . .there’s no question that I made the right decision.

Transferring universities and closing the distance in my relationship. No longer having a LDR, we’ve gotten engaged, married, and are much happier and less stressed overall. I love my college and have made a lot of new friends here, plus I have a job that’s opening up a lot of doors for me and my future career.
I honestly love this place so much, that I was desperate to come back during my latest internship, even though I liked what I was doing there.

- Wedding: December 2017 - Courthouse
That’s awesome Bee! I’m glad Spain worked for you 🙂
I am lucky enough to say I’ve made a lot of decisions I think that have really worked out well for me.
-Met an amazing group of girls from elementary on to high school and the 5 of us are best friends. They have been such a great group of support and we’re always there for each other.
-Joined my sorority in college and met 3 awesome life long friends. The sorority really helped me get through college and gave me a feeling of home away from home.
-Marrying my husband. I can’t believe I’m lucky enough to have found someone who is my partner through everything. He’s so supportive and we are so much on the same wave length its crazy!

Saying yes when my now husband asked me out on a date. I was so over dating, been in a couple of serious relationships after my divorce and I had totally given up. My experience dating at an older age wasn’t so great. Most men in their 40’s are looking for FWB and that’s just not me. I was in the mind set that I wouldn’t date anymore. I was enjoying being single. I was in a meeting at work with my now husband. After the meeting we talked a bit and I went back to my office which is in a whole other building in the complex. About an hour later my now husband shows up, hands me his business card and asked me out. Without hesitation I said yes I’d love to go. Two and half years later we are married and I’m the happiest I’ve been since my kids were home. I thank my husband several times a week for asking me out. I am grateful for my new life with him. He’s my Adam.

Going against my “gut” (AKA habit of choosing guys that were bad for me) and giving my sweet, gentle guy (now fiance) a chance. I had no idea love could be so peaceful and passionate at the same time. He will forever be the best decision I’ve ever made.
