Superstitions, part two:

So yesterday he asked if he could come over in the evening because there was something he wanted to give me before going away for the weekend. I just wanted to see him and give a ‘bon voyage!’ kiss—but when I opened the door he handed me a huge bouquet of orchids.


I have been bouncing, literally vibrating, with happiness since last night. I have never felt more giddy and overwhelmed with emotion. Even typing this, I have to stop and take breaks because I am distracted, beaming a huge smile, and constantly shaking my hands in ecstatic “really?! really!” Paige motions.

The orchids are beautiful. The boy is beautiful. “This is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me,” I told him. Ahhh!
