One of my favorite people in the whole world, Courtney, just got married to Pete, another one of my favorite people in the whole world.
They met at my TV station a little over 3 years ago & got married about 2 months ago.
A few months before Courtney moved to Arkansas, she ended her engagement to her boyfriend of 6 years. She wasn't really looking for love...& she explains why.
"When I called off my wedding in the fall of 2006, I actually had a friend say to me, "you know, it takes half the amount of time you were with your ex to get over your ex." Um, I wasn't liking that. I was with my ex for 6 years, did that mean I had to bench myself for 36 months before I was ready to jump back in?"
"I met Pete about six months after I called it quits with my ex. I had gone on a few blind dates in those months and entertained a few worthless flirtations, but I wasn't ready for a relationship until I met him. As our courtship got going in earnest, I started to worry that it was too soon to dive into something serious, but the only thing holding me back was what I had been told, not what I was feeling. As soon as I gave in and let my heart do the driving, it was like throwing open the curtains and letting the sun in. So ladies, trust me... and just trust your heart."
So, friends...please welcome Courtney to the wonderful world of blogging! I know you'll love her just as much as I do!
