true confession = the bachelorette is my guilty pleasure….
now, i never thought i would publicly admit that i am rather
hooked on the show….but this episode is a little different….
West (who was voted off the show last night) is a very close friend of
my brother’s…he was in fact the best man at my brother’s wedding…
he is an absolute southern gentleman…funny & easy going…i really
appreciated he willingness to hold a basket of flowers or the wedding
bands for me…a job not all grooms-men are so willing to perform…
West tragically lost his wife at a very young age…i remember when my
brother had called and told me what had happened, my brain could not
quite imagine the incredible sadness & loss he was going through….
upon leaving the show last night West said…
“You can’t replace someone that you really loved and was taken from you.
That’s not what I was trying to do. I’m trying to move on. Life is love. If you don’t
have it, you could be happy on so many levels, but it’s so much more satisfying
deeper if you have someone to share it with. Hopefully one day, I’ll find it.”
wishing West all the best in everything…xoxo
