In her own words.
The eighth season of The Bachelorette kicked off last night with Emily Maynard hosting the first cocktail party at a mansion in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Maynard, 26, opens up about the night and who made the best first impressions in her first Bachelorette blog for People.com.
“First of all, I can't even begin to say how grateful and blessed I feel to be The Bachelorette.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
It's still hard for me to wrap my head around the entire idea and I just hope I can do as good of a job as the ladies who have held this honor in the past.
It was a big decision to come back. And to be honest, I didn't know if I wanted to put myself through all of this again.
I was in love with Brad and what we had was very real and true, but when things didn't work out with him, I was reminded that sometimes when people grow they grow apart.
I never want that to happen to me again and it is scary to try to find love in the same way that it had fallen apart for me not that long ago.
I can't tell you how many times I said no, but I know that God allows us to meet people at the right time and I just hope more than anything that this is the right time for me.
I put a lot of pressure on myself to make it work this time because I've been in this situation before and in a way feel as though I've already had my chance. I'm so lucky to be here again and promise it's going to be a great season!
It's always scary meeting new people for the first time, especially like this! I wasn't sure if I would like any of the guys or if any of the guys would like me, but so many of my fears were calmed after just the first limo.
Every guy that stepped out made me feel so comfortable and put the biggest smile on my face as they tried to impress me.
As nervous as I was, I remember getting out of the limo to meet Brad not that long ago and it was honestly one of the most nerve-wracking experiences of my life. I tried to remember that as I spoke to each of the guys and make it my goal to help them feel as comfortable as possible in this crazy experience.
