Constant reminders

Being in the wedding industry doesn’t help me get over my marriage ending. Every day, I talk with brides and help them plan their wedding and every day, I think about my situation. It’s their happy time and my sad time. I watched a really great documentary on HBO called 112 weddings. I would highly […]

Couple of updates..

When my nephew passed 3 weeks ago, I really struggled with the decision to let my soon-to-be-ex know the tragic news. He and my nephew had a pretty close relationship. My ex and I have not spoken since he left me last May, except through lawyers. I have no way to reach him so I […]

I admit that I am a pretty emotional person, so much so that I can even cry during some commercials, depending on the subject.

The legal process is so slow.

It’s been 8 months since I filed for divorce.  A scary and sad step for sure.  A friend, who recently got divorced, referred me to the lawyer she used. As I mentioned before, I don’t have a very large income so this wasn’t going to be easy financially. I definitely did not want to use […]

Coping day to day

As the days, weeks and months went by, after he left, I tried to stay busy. But that wasn’t always easy. I didn’t really have any hobbies or a lot of extra money to start one. I also didn’t have the motivation to do anything either. I had a little extra to meet a friend […]

Getting Organized

Divorce. I can’t believe I am saying that word, let alone going through the process. And the cost… don’t get me started. I work full-time, but like a lot of the working world, I don’t make a lot of money. I had to do this with one income now. Mind you, he walked away and […]
