Jillian Harris blogs about her Bachelorette journey for
the last time this week. She discusses the After the Final Rose episode, where
she faced jilted bachelors Kiptyn Locke and Reid Rosenthal, and her
relationship with fiancé Ed Swiderski. Ed takes over part of the blog and
promises fans he will take care of Jillian.
“Well … that’s a wrap! I will keep this post short and
sweet as I have an eager man waiting for me and wanting to get OUT IN PUBLIC
together … FINALLY! I have been waiting for this day since May 24th — the day
that I can openly tell you how madly in love I am, how happy I am and how
excited I am for the future.
A wise man once said, “Love, it don’t come easy” — and
that is so true. I can honestly say that I have found my best friend but it
didn’t come without consequences. Aside from all the crying, surprises, drama,
public criticism and most importantly, hurting two incredible men that I will
never forget — please understand that it broke my heart as much as theirs — I
never imagined in a million years that I would have to let two men go that I
love so dearly, and have it hurt so so much in order to be with the man that I
am wanting to spend the rest of my life with.
Reid and Kiptyn are both unbelievable men. Some will have
opinions of why maybe I should have picked one or the other instead of Ed. Some
will see why Ed was perfect for me from the beginning. I embrace ALL of your
opinions. I can see why you would all think ALL three of these men would be
great for me. For those who want to congratulate my happiness … THANK YOU!!! We
are both EXTREMELY happy (still) and truly it gets better and better every day
we are together.
The “After the Final Rose” was not easy. Not for me, and
not for Reid or Kiptyn I’m sure. I felt like there was no right way to deal
with the situation. I have always been very close with my exes but have never
had to confront them in a setting like this before so I was definitely hurting.
There are so many fabulous memories and so many sensitive ones. All I can say
is that I am lucky — lucky to have been loved by these men and lucky to be with
one right now that thinks the world of me.
As I type this, we are off to our FIRST outing in public,
hopefully just wings and beer! I am so excited and so eager to get my normal
little life back. Ed and I have spent the summer together (every two weeks for
five days at a time) and it truly does keep on getting better and better. We
have so much fun together, know one another so well and find ourselves so
comfortable with each other. We have learned so much about one another and I am
loving every minute of it.
Oh wait — someone’s stealing my computer!
Ed here! I cannot believe the journey that we have
experienced over the last few months. But we are having a blast and could not
be happier. I want to thank everyone for their support and cheering us on.
Jilly and I have been spending so much time together and have an incredible
summer planned. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU … for believing in Jilly and
supporting her throughout this. She means the world to me and I promise I will
take good care of her. We are ready for a wicked life together!
Well, I better get going. Mr. Invisible is waiting
patiently. Love you ALL, thank you soooo much!!!! I would not have gotten
through this without all of your support.
XOXOXOX and ALL MY LOVE,
