Hello! And welcome to my new blog! My name is Cathy Marie. Those of you who know me may already be aware of my previous blog, The True Confessions of a Reluctant Bachelorette (www.thereluctantbachelorette.com). I launched that site in January 2015 and ended it in September of this year with a post that celebrated my marriage to Mr. Daniel Tighe! Thus, the title of my new blog!
I will use this site to write about the things that concern or tickle me about being a newlywed. Topics such as changing my name or moving out of Queens are already brewing in my mind. This site will be a platform where other newlyweds– or even veterans of the married life– may either identify with it or find humor in the things that are not a part of their married experience. This site can also be visited by the single people out there who, upon reading about my experiences, may grow ever more thankful that they are not married themselves. Or my words may inspire the hope of marrying some day. Perhaps, the divorced woman may read my words and celebrate the fact that she is freed from the proverbial ball and chain. And let’s not forget the widow and widower, who may (or may not) find a bit of comfort in reminiscing about the things that they once felt were important when their spouses were still with them.
This site will obviously not be for every one and that’s okay! I just hope whoever happens upon it may take something positive from it and perhaps find it a good read. I want this site to be an insightful look at the married life in the fresh perspective of a newlywed who loves to formulate her thoughts and feelings into words.
