Yes, it's been two long years since Paula Patton has hopped on social media, but she decided there was no better time to return to Twitter than tonight.

The actress tweeted her first message in months earlier this evening and asked fans for their forgiveness during her lengthy hiatus.

"Please forgive my long absence," she started out by writing before adding, "Feeling so grateful for every second of this life. If any of you are still out there, thank you & I'm sorry!"

Her last tweet, on April 7, 2014, was a photograph taken at Dodger's Stadium with her son Julian on his birthday.

And while The Perfect Match star's social media hasn't exactly been top of mind for her, she recently admitted to E! News that she's open to finding love again following her split from Robin Thicke.

The longtime couple parted ways in February of 2014 after almost nine years of marriage and their divorce was finalized in April 2015.

"I think there is probably a perfect match for different times in your life," she explained to us. "I think you have to define perfect. Nothing in life is perfect like that. People argue. People have fights. But that's how you get through it, get to the other side, compromise and then you're like, ‘I think I met my perfect match. They've helped me grow…and I love them in spite of it all.'"
