Flashback Friday: Love 2003

This picture is from October 2003, taken in India. I'm not sure if most reading remember or knew how me and my husband met. It was online. And actually we weren't expecting that to happen, I wasn't seeking someone online for a relationship and neither was he. It was just for chit chat, nothing more. But it turned into something else! If you want more of the story you can read this post.

Me and my dad went to India to I could meet up with Sujeet. So this picture is even before we were engaged, but we were engaged within days. That trip was definitely a trip of a lifetime. I went to New Delhi, India and also we went to Agra, India to see the Taj Mahal.

I remember feeling the happiest I had ever felt, in love, and on an adventure. Sometimes that trip seems like a dream, so long ago. But I know it was real since the same guy I went to go see is now living here in the US with me and we have been married over five years. :) We have been "in love" for about eight years. The separation we had because of being on opposite sides of the world was very hard for me back then. I used to wonder if we'd ever be together for good because it seemed so complicated - you can't just have someone move the US to marry you easily. It's a long immigration process. But now it's a distant memory.

If anyone wonders how he settled in to living here, I am happy to say very well. He works in computer software development and has a job only 9 miles from here. He used to have to drive over an hour to Tampa but a job came up nearby for the state and he's been there since October 2008. :)

By the way, tea is much more popular in India than coffee. So I thought this tea vintage image was a cute addition!!

What a cool way to find the one you were meant to love. I'm so happy you guys were able to find one another, even half a world away. That's a great pic.
