I’m in love. Head over heels, no talking any sense to me, all consuming, hopelessly, giddy in love, love, love. Having said that, I feel that anything and everything I’m about to reveal is completely venial.
As some of you are well aware, it’s been just shy of a month where I panicked and decided that the internet was no place to discuss all the intimate details of my private life.
Psshht. I’m so over it. Listen, this is too juicy not to share. Plus, I feel compelled to explain how it is possible that when I had finally arrived at a place in my life where I happily embraced my independence and my life as a single mama, a time when I was most certainly not looking for love, when I was sure I had given up on what I deemed the fairy tale of love, he showed up completely gorgeous and unexpected and swept me off my feet.
Never mind the fact that we live some 900 miles apart, that there are very real obstacles that weigh on our decision to make a go of it and that there are lots of folks who are near and dear to us that roll their eyes and shake their heads when they find out that we met *gasp* by way of our blogs.
So, we thought what better way to illustrate what unfolded between us and how we arrived here then to share our correspondence. This place we are at, this here and now, finds us obsessed with how and when we will find ourselves together again, phone calls into the wee hours of the night, IM-ing, email exchanges, love letters, poetry, music and hoping, scheming for a way to make this as temporary as we can. We imagine this as our stepping stone to a life that we envision as our coming home to a very full house pregnant with love, laughter and happily ever after.

Don;t ever say the "P" word!
Is that foreshadowing?

Does it make me a bad person to be totally envious?? :)
But very, very happy for the two of you. I'm glad you decided to share more of the story.
