There was an intense love, a circle of togetherness meant only for us. A happiness inside never felt before. A look in the eyes never seen before. A pace of heartbeat never measured before.
It is only the beginning of the ever after. Happiness has no bounds, but it is invisible. It is reigned in for those unguarded moments. It is subtle and delicate, twinkling like a star when no one is looking (maybe like the one shining on my finger). It is contained in that circle of togetherness.
Many people guessed that something was up last week and well… It was. The engagement. The first start of my forever, so to speak 🙂 It took me sometime to understand what evolving means, and now I embark on a journey to understand what evolving together signifies. I have a feeling it is a journey that never really has a destination because there is never just one destination! There are turns and forks and slides and climbs. Perhaps, veer off the path and simply enjoy the foliage for a while. It is going to be exciting, fun and inspiring! With tons of schooling.
The first step that we are taking is a trip of a lifetime! 🙂 Three weeks of pure happiness and immersing ourselves in a melting pot of cultures, adventures and sights. United States, here we come! Fall foliage, yummy foods, colorful cocktails and road trips. A time to relax and find ourselves in new ways.
I am excited. Butterflies fluttering like mad! But it is not just the prospect of a long due vacation that is making me happy, and, at the risk of sounding unromantic, not just the prospect of travelling together. It is also making memories that I know for a fact can never have a round two. It is also discovering the version of myself I will meet while I am there. It is also carving different dimensions to the relationship that we are slowly building. Travelling thousands of miles is obviously not necessary for it, but it is a factor that has a heavy weight. It is really going to be one dreamy interlude, seemingly endless.
So it is a race to wrap up loose ends at work, complete last minute formalities and stay sane till the date of departure. It’ll be difficult to be around and keep up with my reading of all these wonderful blogs over the next month. Promise to come back soon and get on track!
Attention US folks/people familiar with US: Some suggestions and tips for New York City and Washington DC is most welcome. New Orleans too! Food, places to see, hidden gems not on the tourist map 🙂 And Oh! Best places to catch fall foliage 🙂
