There has been a ton of discussion on our blog lately about why Shannon and Matt Thiessen from Relient K are no longer engaged. Now, Shannon is setting the record straight with this blog post…
So it’s almost 2009 … And for the first time, I’m really excited for the “clean slate.”
I’ll make this short (And as sweet as I can): For those of you who missed my announcement on the show a few days ago, I am no longer engaged. I called it off after learning a few things about Matt that I simply just could not handle. He’s a wonderful person with an amazingly huge heart, and I love him more than anything. But … No more wedding bells. I’m leaving it at that, and I hope you will, too. I need a lot of privacy, a lot of support and a lot of inspiration as I begin the “healing process.”
Right now, I’m in Michigan spending some much-needed time with my fabulous family and friends. There’s about 8 inches of snow on the ground already, and I think we’re getting a bunch more before Christmas. I love it. (And I love that I get to leave after the holidays and come back home to sunny, warm ATLANTA!!!) I’ve been sledding, watching movies, playing Apples to Apples, and … Cooking. No joke. I’m Miss Domestically Disabled, but somehow I’ve pulled off chocolate-covered pretzels, chicken pot pie, and a ridiculous number of cookies.
That’s all for now … More to come when I get back to work!
