The wait is almost over!

Sweet single mom Emily Maynard will make her debut as The Bachelorette on Monday night and it sounds like this season may be the most exciting one yet.

"I had the best time being The Bachelorette and I can't wait to share my experience with you on Monday night!" Maynard, 26, tells PEOPLE.

But like anyone who's meeting someone (potentially) special for the first time, Maynard had first-night jitters.

"My biggest fear was that I wouldn't be able to see myself with any of the guys," she says. "But after I met all of the men on the first night, I couldn't have been more wrong."

You'll be able to keep up with Maynard as she meets the guys, goes on dates and hands out roses all season long with her Bachelorette blog.

"I hope you all have as much fun watching as I did living it," Maynard says.
