The grandest adventure of all.
It's taken me a while to share this news.
I think, somehow, that I never grew out of the idea that if you tell your wish, it won't come true. So, I have always kept big things like this a secret - for as long as they could be kept, anyway.
It has always been this way - with job interviews and crushes and auditions that really mattered. Rational thinking tells me that discussing them won't make a difference, but my heart just won't allow me to speak.
Anyway, there it is now. Out there for all to know, and happily shared with only the purest joy and anticipation.
O and I have always felt so incredibly lucky. Our relationship has consisted of one adventure after another - some intentional, others just a natural part of the journey - and each one more exciting than the last. But I can't help thinking that this one just might top them all.
