Blonde Episodes meets Brown Eyed Belle!

Yes, today Ms. Kori (aka Blondie) meets Ms. Julie (aka BeB) and it is heaven!! I hope you will agree once you've finished reading what this amazing lady wrote for me! If you don't know Kori, head over to her place as soon you're finished here. If you are visiting me from Blonde Episodes, hello, I hope you'll stay a while! Now, settle into a comfy chair and enjoy.....

What have you learned this year?
I was asked by my friend Julie to guest post on her fantastic blog.  I am so honored to be chosen and thought I would write a little about something I am feeling…love.

Now, before you get all nauseous and want to gag, hear me out.  Yes, I am newly in love.  No, I am not some star-eyed twit wandering around in a fog. 

With Christmas fast approaching, I think it’s time to really reflect on the past year.  I was married.  I’m newly divorced.  I finally found the sweetest, kindest, most considerate man I’ve ever known.  My husband verbally abused me and made me feel like I was nothing.  I broke away after only 5 months of marriage and have never looked back.

Am I proud of myself?  Yes.  Do I wish I never married him?  No.  You see I had to marry the biggest jerk on the planet in order to grow up.  I always dated bad boys you see, and didn’t want anything to do with the nice guys.  That all changed after I went through what I did.

That’s when I found Jerry.  I believe God truly sent him to me.  I am so lucky and thank God every day for this new beginning and happiness I never thought I could find.

So, what did I learn this year?  A lot.  Most of all, I learned to be happy.  What have you learned this year?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
