Well. What can I say. I blog today as a completely different person than I was a year ago. This blog has followed my dating life, and my regular life, through ups and downs and random thoughts. It’s been my savior at times, times when I needed to get demons out of me. I’ve met some great blog friends on here, and, looking back through some of the worst blog posts, I don’t regret much of what I’ve written here. But I’ve entered a new part of my life, and with these changes, I’m blogging less here and more elsewhere.
A year ago, I was single, finally getting over a horrible relationship and breach of trust, wondering if I would ever meet someone special, if I would ever be able to trust again. A year ago I was unemployed, wondering if I would find a job, if I would ever get to do all the things I wanted to do but didn’t have the money to. 2010 was a very rough year for me, and I was glad that it was over, and hoping for a better year in 2011.
Then I met someone. Someone special. And I found that I was still capable of trust. And I loved, and I was loved, and I was respected and cherished. Nine months after meeting this man, I married him, and I still sometimes can’t believe how lucky I am to have him in my life. He’s amazing, funny, caring, strong, loving, supportive, trustworthy, smart, chivalrous. Everything you could possibly want in a man. They do still exist.
Two months after getting married, my husband and I made a huge move, to Finland. We’ve been here two weeks now, and it’s great. A little cold, but not as cold as you might expect. I am here on his work permit, which means I don’t have my own, so I can’t work. My job, my husband tells me, is to write.
Imagine that. My lifelong dream to not have to work and being able to write full time has come true.
Another lifelong dream – to travel. And living in Europe, we intend to do exactly that. France, Italy, Estonia, Sweden, St Petersburg, Prague, Krakow, London, Germany – they’re all on the agenda in the next two years.
To sum up: I met my Prince Charming and am living my Happily Ever After. It does happen.
I don’t know how often I’ll post on this blog now, but you never know when I might pop up.
Oh, and I met my Prince online, at OKCupid. So, sometimes, online dating does work.
