so as most of you know, my love brought me from my home in Texas to the state for lovers, Virginia. Today was the first time i went out on my own. It may not sound like a great feat, but suffice it to say i was proud to find my way, especially in the rain.
I got a much needed trim to the mess that was my hair.
while i waited, i read the end of Eclipse.
For all you twilight fans, you know i'm Team Edward completely but Jacob... i felt for him. I've loved like him, or better yet had someone that loved me like he loves Bella.
one of my favourite things is the moment you are reading a book and you realize why the author picked the title. Sometimes it's obvious and sometimes you get it after you close the book. I love these moments.
"He sighed. 'The clouds I can handle. But I can't fight with an eclipse." pg 600
I texted M immediately telling her i was nearly in tears in the lounge of my new salon.
i can't wait to get started on Breaking Dawn and can't believe it's taken me this long to start the series. (4 a.m., i think we'll have another date very soon)
ok if i can stop thinking about the world of vampires and sullen werewolves for a moment, i can tell you that i met a friend today.
Yup, my hair stylist. She was sweet and i don't know what it is when you're sitting in a salon chair but you chit chat. And if you're like me, you have a gift of opening up to any kindred soul. I told her about my engagement that brought me to Virginia. I asked her if she was married or had any kids (small talk) and of course, i instantly felt bad when she told me she was engaged but broke up with her fiance awhile back...
this could have been awkward.
i did feel terrible for asking.
but there's something about these kind of meetings... even in a salon.
this otherwise perfect stranger shared her story with me... that she had been engaged for 15 years. That it didn't work because they were never on the same page.
and we agreed that that was life.
it wasn't all "heavy" (and even that part wasn't for us as it should seem) and thanks to her i now know where a good indian restaurant is and a pet groomery to take Maverick.
perhaps i'll try out this indian place tomorrow...
