Today is a celebration.  A celebration of singleness.  A celebration of life.  A celebration of who I am and where I’ve been.
Happy Noniversary!

What’s a Noniversary?  It’s a celebration of Non-Wedding Day (NWD)- the day that I didn’t get married.  As I’ve said before;

I know that eventually, I won’t want to celebrate NWD.  Eventually, I won’t care.  Eventually, I’ll wake up on September 6th, and I won’t even realize that it’s the day.  But as for now, when I do remember what almost happened, I choose to celebrate it.  Not just because I know that I am better off in every way, or because I didn’t give up my awesome last name, or because I get to enjoy living by myself.  But just because I can.

    Happy NWD! I thought of you today while I was out on my run. When I thought I couldn’t go on anymore, I thought about your strength today. I admire you so much!

    I was engaged when I was 18. You’re right… you’ll wake up on some September 6th, and you won’t remember it’s “the” day. It usually dawns on me in the evening or not even at all.

    Those pictures of you are great! I think it’s awesome to celebrate yourself on this day. I especially like the idea of celebrating who you are and where you’ve been. You are awesome.

    Happy NWD (I know I’m late to the party…)!

    I’m so proud of you and how you approach this day. Your positiveness is so addicting. I love it!

    I’m a pretty ardent champion of the single life — perhaps to a fault. But for that very reason, it was a joy to read all of this story.

    Thanks Heather!
