Most Proud Moment
 So I probably should have started thinking about this one a bit more in advance ... This was really hard ... I have such high expectations for myself so I don't come to 'feel proud' easily. But after some soul searching I have decided that my proudest moment has to be when I got (re)married. I never was one that thought I wouldn't get married again. Heck, I was only 25 when I got divorced. It would have been unrealistic to think that I wouldn't eventually get remarried. However divorce is a tricky son of a bitch. Whether it's your decision or not - it is hard. It is hard to know that you - the one and only person you can 100% trust could be so wrong. And also go back on your word - your promise. With that in mind I dated. I kept myself vulnerable but I always kept my doubts about my judgment in the back of my mind. So after meeting my husband - and falling so fast and hard into our love story I still waffled back and forth on whether what I was feeling (both myself and from him) was real. That it would not peter out and fizzle away. And when we finally got engaged (after dating & living together for 4 1/2 years) I was still so happy in our life. And at that point in time - we had been together longer than my entire relationship (dating & marriage) with my ex-husband. And I still felt just as strongly - if not more - that this was my forever life. And at on our wedding day - it was the most happy I have ever been. And there was not an ounce of doubt or nerves anywhere to be found. We've now been together 5 1/2 years total and I am so proud of where I am and where I've been.

This seems to be a tough one for me. I've been thinking about it for a few days now and, although a few things come to mind, I'm not sure one stands out over any of the others. But, I have to pick one. Soooo....
In recent history I finally graduated college (three years ago.) It took me 10 years to earn a '4 Year Degree' and I have yet to put it to much use, but it was a goal that I often thought I would never reach. So, the fact that I did is kind of a big deal to me.
Even after I had earned it, there was a moment that I considered not attending the commencement ceremony. I'm so glad that I did, because it turns out that's one of my 'Most Proud Moments.'
