There has been
of speculation about why I haven't been wearing my wedding rings in my outfit photos since August. While I don't believe it's appropriate to get into details (especially since the blog doesn't really concern my private life), we have decided to issue a statement (J.Lo and Marc Anthony style!) to quiet any rumors;
"After five happy years of knowing each other, we have decided to amicably split. We remain close friends to this day, and are excited to see what the future holds for each of us! Thank you for your support and concern, and for respecting our privacy during this transition."
- J. & M.
If you choose to comment or talk about this situation publicly, please remember that this is a situation that does not only involve me, but another person and their entire family and we all need to be super-respectful of their privacy, as well as mine. Also feel free to email me privately if that seems more appropriate (
). As a Christian who never in a million years thought I would ever be the "d word," this is not my favorite life situation I've ever been in. But going through this process over the past 8 months has taught me more about life, judging others, judging yourself and what it truly means to follow Jesus than I could ever express. I also look back on my 5 years with M. as a very happy time, and wouldn't trade a minute of it. Thanks for all your support over the past year and a half of blogging, and now let's raise a glass and cheers to lives full of happiness and love for all of us!
