When I saw the wedding pictures of a previous acquaintance, a realization happened for me. The gypsies that once danced around that large bonfire on the outskirts of society have found a new cause in life: settling down. We may still buck convention and live outside of the box, but we are starting families of our own terms. Why even little ole me is happy to be at home with a good book and some company on a Saturday night.
It was a year ago when a dear friend explained to me that life was meant to be spent with someone you love. No person has to go at this great thing alone unless that is what they choose. You want to be able to share the good times and bad times with someone special at your side. She was right, and it was something that I needed to hear.
