With the start of the New Year I wanted to share something very personal. 2016 was a year filled with many blessings but it has also been a difficult year. You never know the battles that people are dealing with and this is something I have been dealing with both privately and with my close friends and family. I have sat down to write this post several times but decided I ultimately wanted to get through the holidays with as much normalcy as possible. I also just wasn't ready to share this publicly.
I know many of you have emailed me and left comments asking about Matt. The truth is we separated several months ago as I am sure many of you suspected. This is not something that we took lightly or that was a rash decision. We tried and fought for our marriage especially for the sake of the kids but at the end of the day neither of us were happy. Sometimes you can love someone but you just aren't a good fit. Matt and I still remain close and dedicated to being the best parents possible for Sterling and Frances Moon. We want this transition to be as smooth as possible.
As many of you know a separation is so difficult. My heart goes out to any of you who have gone through such a difficult time. I trust God in all aspects of my life and trust in His plan for me during this new chapter.
I am happy for the New Year and a fresh start. I am also thankful for all the love and support you guys give me. Thank you for being there for me and your devotion for my blog and respect for my family during this difficult time.
