I didn't think it would happen. After a high school breakup with my first "love" [whatever that means], and living with a parents' marriage that should have ended years ago, I didn't think true love existed. I had never seen it actually last.
And although I don't know how far this road will take me, I've fallen in love again and learned to trust another human being. I was reticent to add this because it's so overused, but I wrote it down on my own "bucket list" years ago before there was such thing as a "bucket list." Then, it was just called a life list. I felt obligated to add it here, as it meant something to me then, and it still means something huge to me now.
