And ever since then, I’ve been grinning ear-to-ear. MOSTLY because, well, have you seen my husband?! He’s about as handsome as handsome gets . . . but then again, I can be a little biased ;) no, it’s more due to the fact that everything [right now] in this very moment is my version of perfect. I know it sounds corny, but I truly believe this was a role I was meant to play = being Mrs. Pilant.
I’ve actually thought “this” for awhile now – even going back as far as our first date! I guess it’s true what they say: when you know, you know. It’s ALSO a task I will never take lightly as marriage is a privilege, not a God-given right. I’m serious. I believe that too many times in marriages [sadly] people become lackadaisical. I’ve seen it happen first-hand and I’m sure YOU have as well.
Now, I am by no means an expert at relationships. I just feel very fortunate that the universe [or whatever you believe in] has granted me this second opportunity at happiness and I will ALWAYS be grateful for it. I mean the job does comes with its perks: a one-of-a-kind rose gold ring, my own real-life George Clooney [did I mention that my husband’s gorgeous?], and the sort of love and respect most women only read about.

What I’m REALLY trying to say IS I’m having the best time :) and we’re only one month in!
