In 3 weeks, save 1 day, I'll be heading out to the Dominican Republic to meet someone I was introduced to by a close friend at work.

I've known only known her by voice and through the messages we exchange on a daily basis.

Even growing up in cultures that are so completely different, it's incredible to find that we have so much in common. She's a strong, educated, single mother who's been through even more than I have, which is certainly saying a lot.

I've never fallen for someone in a foreign language before and I can only hope my American accent is charming enough to cover my seemingly vain attempts at eloquence in Spanish.

I applied for my passport just a few days ago and it made all this feel so real. This is the craziest thing I've ever done and I don't know what to expect.

I'm nervous and I know she is too. But hell...even if this all goes horribly wrong, it'll still make for one hell of adventure.

When you have nothing, you have nothing to lose, no?

I know we'll become good friends either way...but I can't shake this strong suspicion that fate might well have something even more in store for us.

There hasn't been much happiness on here lately so I'm happy to share that we just made it official ^,^. It still isn't super serious between us but... We'll fond out 13 days from now if that changes or not :).
