Let’s start at the end: this photo was taken shortly before sunset by my significant other, because I wanted to share with you that I’m six months pregnant and we’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of our baby girl.
As soon as the camera was turned off (how classic), we sat on a bench – facing the sea. Then, in the most surprising and unpredictable (at least as far as I’m concerned) timing, my “camera hater” pulled a ring out of his pocket – and moved me to tears.
In one small, intimate moment – the accumulation of years of disappointments and failures just burst out of me, mixed with incredible feelings of hope, happiness, love and also – a sea of hormones.
Are you still breathing? ;-)
At the age of “a few minutes before 42”, after I’d already given up romanticizing about the classic family dream and started seeking other options, the craziest year came around and taught us all (for better and for worse) that we can plan and plan, and think we have control over our lives – but in reality, the universe always has its own plan and pace.
Sometimes I wonder just how many hallucinogenic drugs the screenwriter who wrote the story of my life was on?! I swear the storyline is totally worthy of a telenovela!
But if there’s one thing I learned from the crazy road I’ve been walking down, it’s – “seek and you shall find”.
After announcing my pregnancy and engagement, I received such an amazing response from you. You’ve showered me with love and warmth, and thrilled me to tears with your warm words. Thank you all, I feel so incredibly lucky!
I never imagined that my own personal happiness and excitement could touch your hearts as it did. Thank you for opening your hearts! I do not take this for granted.
May we all continue dreaming, loving and experiencing excitement. And may good news come head your way!
