Happy belated Valentine’s Day everyone!

 

Well, my Facebook friends are already well aware of our big announcement from this past Friday…

 Miloš and I got engaged!

Friday the 13th is a lucky day after all! 🙂

 

I can’t say I didn’t know it was coming – we had already started the process of planning the wedding and choosing the date.  We even went ring shopping together.  But I had no idea when or how he was going to do it.

 

He surprised me on Friday afternoon when we walked out to Kačjak (the peninsula above town) and climbed down to our favorite cove by the sea.  We walked out on to the cluster of rocks in the water (where we often sunbathe in the summer) and he surprised me with the proposal.

 

You all know our story already, so I’m not going to repeat myself, but I thought I’d share some overall thoughts.

(Here’s a link to our LOVE STORY if you’d like to read it, or in case you’re new to the blog.)

 

So, here goes with some of those thoughts…

 

•For anyone who has ever been jaded or felt cynical when it comes to love, I personally know that feeling.  Been there, done that.  But I was proven wrong, and I came to realize that love is real and amazing.  I needed the right person to help me learn that lesson.  (CLICK HERE for my revelation post.)  If things aren’t going great for you and your love life, just hang in there – it will happen when it’s time.  I know waiting sucks, but often in life, the best things come to those who wait.

•For anyone who has ever felt the pain and yearning of being in a long distance relationship, just hang in there.  If you really want to make it work, you will.  When two people want to be together, they will find a way.  No one knows that better than Miloš and I.

•For anyone in a long distance relationship who has had to listen to all the skeptics and their negative comments… well, those naysayers don’t know what they’re talking about.  What matters is the two people in that relationship and their commitment to each other.  Don’t ever let people tell you it can’t work!

•There is someone out there for everyone.  It’s just a matter of finding the person whose idiosyncrasies mesh with your own.  Someone who brings you happiness, friendship, fun, and love.  Someone who makes you feel safe and appreciated.

 

Here’s to love and happiness, everyone!  ❤

One of my favorite quotes is, "If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough." I guess I've been a dreamer all my life - I set my sights high and then I try to reach the sky. Some might call me a naive idealist, but that's just the way I am. I believe in always taking the high road, I believe in true love, and I believe in treating people the way you want to be treated. If you put good out into the world, good will come back to you! Being the dreamer that I am, I pursued singing as my primary life's calling - I've got two degrees in classical voice under my belt, and I sing just about anything under the sun. I also love a good adventure. Over the past few years, I've done quite a bit of world traveling, and have even lived abroad for stretches at a time: mostly in Vienna (Austria) and Croatia. A few years ago, I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, and I became a travel agent who specializes in Disney vacations. (Seriously, I KNOW Disney - I've been going regularly since I was a little girl - and I LOVE it!) And with all my experience traveling and living in Europe, I'm becoming quite the specialist in that travel category as well. (And last year, I started working as a Tour Director in Central Europe!) As to the other juicy details of my life - I'm originally from Pennsylvania, I'm married to an awesome Croatian man named Miloš who is the BEST adventure partner a girl could ask for. (He's also an expert on knowing how to make me smile.) He's truly the love of my life! I've also had all kinds of other jobs along the way, besides singer and travel pro. (Which is pretty standard for those of us who went to school for music.) I've worked part time weekends as a Disney Princess look-alike for children's parties. I've been teaching for almost 20 years, and have lots of experience in retail and customer service. Oh, and I should also probably mention that I'm a huge Lord of the Rings/Star Trek nerd! :-) Let's all go along for an adventure, shall we?
