I met Mr B when I had been living in New York for just one week. He was there on a conference. He'd spent the past nine years based in Richmond, Virginia, but had moved permanently back to Australia a few months earlier. What were the odds?
Two years later, when I moved back to Australia to live with him, I made him a little graphic novel of our crazy romance, for our first Valentine's Day together. Here is the Reader's Digest-esque condensed version.
(Sorry about the sometimes blurry text. I no longer own a scanner and these were snapped on my iPhone.)
Happy Valentine's Day (week), all you lovers. And if you are searching for love right now, I hope you take heart from my story. You never know what (or who) awaits you in the strangest of places and circumstances!
