Julia & Joerg:
Today, when we are asked, how we had met each other, he usually says “Classically! Via Internet! :)”
Today, when we are asked, how we had met each other, he usually says “Classically! Via Internet! :)” and we both smile.
But one year ago people used to call us “strange”. Perhaps in their eyes we were really strange, but for us both everything was as a miracle. We didn't notice anything or anybody around us.
I registered at InterFriendship and saw a Man with a short description of his person and just the only one picture in his profile. But with a really striking picture! It was so warm, cozy and manful that I hurried to say him all that.
Couple of days later I got his answer. Now it's our first date to celebrate :)
First e-mails were, in a good meaning of this word, intrigue. To know each other better, to discover and open our new sides, to talk more.
Soon I was surprised with an unexpected Skype-call. We were inspired by each other. Skype-calls followed every evening. Every day we both hurried to finish our works and get home sooner to feel this wave which covered us.
Less that in one month after our first letter he booked a flight and one week later I met him at the airport. Before I had seen him, my knees were shaking and I worried soooo much... But when I saw him, coming out from the customs zone, my knees started shaking double-power...
That was Love.
And that became our next date to celebrate :)
So, one month later, coming to visit me again, he said to the whole his big family, that he wouldn't join them, because he would spent X-mas...with HIS OWN family... With me...
And that was even before the time when we decided to get married. The proposal came in the end of his visit.
In two months (there were visits after X-mas time, solving questions with papers and official bodies, etc.) we got married. Without any guests, without wedding mess and even without special clothes and rings :) Just jeans and T-shirts and jackets... But now we make jokes, that we DO use our wedding clothes! Nearly every day! :) We were incredibly happy! And we didn't need anything for our happiness, but just each other...
And of course that was, and is, our main celebration-date! :)
Our families got to know about our marriage in about one week :) Sure everybody was surprised, but shared a moment of happiness together with us. They were happy to see our shining eyes and to feel warmth which was always between us.
Meanwhile we were busy with documents. Papers, papers and papers :) Then the visit to the embassy... We were forecast to receive an answer in about two months. But YES-answer came in four weeks... Unexpectedly, but we hadn't ever had a surprise bigger than that :)
Now we are a happy family, building our world together, explore the life and discover new things. Nobody is perfect, neither we are... We are normal people with our likes and dislikes, yes's and no's... But it's a great pleasure to solve tasks together, to work for our relations and to feel Love and Life running in our blood.
And yes, now we have cozy family evenings we were dreaming about. And every of them is worthy of the way to be done.
