What do you do if love and travel mix?

It's almost at the end of the year. This has been the worst year of my life. In the beginning of 2014 I told myself that this is going to be my year. Just got married, planning to start a family as soon as possible, loved my new husband to bits, our business was growing fast....

Never plan your life so far ahead! One moment I was so happy with my life and the next I was getting divorced, sold the business, childless, depressed. Never in my wildest dreams did I thought I would be almost 30 and single. Well as they say life goes on. I got a job at a news paper, paid the bills, got a small department, smaller car, living life the best I could. The only good thing that happended were that I lost weight through all the stress.

It's October, just got to the musical festival my friend invited me to. Sitting beside them, happy at last again with myself, got a bit of confidence back again.  It's been a blast but almost about 11pm and things were starting to get quiet, people are packing up, drunks are being led to their cars by friends, been a fun long day. Decided to go to the bathroom before going home. On my way back I see that the chairs we were sitting at were empty... my handbag were under the chairs and now it nowhere to be found.

Really!!! I have been through enough, my wallet, kar keys, phone, cards, money, my whole life is in there. My friends already left, and I burst into tears searching everywhere for my handbag. No one here anymore... suddenly someone taps me on the shoulder, "what's wrong, I saw you were crying and thought I could help you". I don't talk to strangers but suddenly remembered that I didn't had a phone with me or my car keys, bummer! "Yes please", we started to search for my handbag everywhere, but nowhere to be found.

I phoned my sister from his phone to get my spare car key. The next morning, something told me to go check on the computer on Facebook to look if someone sended me a message or something, my id was also in my handbag with my name on. Was like a miracle that happened. Someone sended me a message on Fb and told me they had it. Jumped in my car and went to get it. Everything was still in there. Just to show there is still good people in this world.

Got his number from my sister who still got the last dialed on the phone to thank him. As it turned out, we have been chatting ever since. Been on dates, the most wonderfull guy. I really like him to bits, but there were a problem. When I started the divorce, I started to plan to go oversea and work there for a year, to get my head right and find myself again. Everything already organised, paid for. But I feel something deeply connected to this guy. So I am going to go oversea, if we were meant to be, we wil work out.

Been so dissapointed in my years in love, I promised myself to never let love run my life again. I will do what I feel is right for me! But when I see him, I feel a deep connection I have never felt before, butterflies, sillyness, happyness, just plain stupid love in my heart...
