Yup – as of this past Monday, that would be me! A year and a half after knowing, finally, I could no longer be married to my husband, it’s official.
I cried in court as the words were read; feeling the finality of them. Afterwards we went out for smoothies and I showed him the place my sweetheart and I will be calling our new home in less than a week.
I breathe more easily with the knowledge that I am officially not his any longer. Even though I have always just been mine, it took me a long while to come to that conclusion.
A door has closed and I step out into the world, feeling more solidly myself.
