I've been needing and wanting to write about the changes in my life for some time now. Changes that are very big and affect many people. Changes that I know I need to put out there sort a speak but at the same time they are so personal that I feel uneasy writing about it online.
As some of you already know Kevin and I are in the process of getting a divorce. It's something most will find shocking, some may feel the need to speculate or gossip, others who are so dear to me, won't do either, they will only love and support me through this difficult time.
The last 2-3 years have been quite the roller coaster for Kevin and I. It took a long time and a lot of tears but we have found that we make better friends than husband and wife.
Divorce is not something we ever in a million years thought would happen to us and yet it is. We remain close friends and will always make an amazing parenting team but husband and wife we are no more.
We love each other enough as friends and parents to our children that we want both of us to be truly happy even if we can no longer do that for one another.
Kevin and I had an amazing 11 years of marriage, have three beautiful children, and we know everything, even the hard stuff, happens for a reason. We know we were always meant to be one another's first soul mates and have our three amazing children. We also know we both have second soul mates that we will spend the rest of our lives with. For that we feel truly blessed to not only have that but to recognize that.
As I mentioned above, Kevin and I remain close friends, both online and in real life. If you reply to this, I ask that you be respectful to both Kevin and I. Anything less than that will not be tolerated.
Change can be very very difficult, but change is sometimes necessary.
