“This is where the heart is. This is home”
“We would like you to be over on our solemnization day but it is only going to be a small affair”, said Angie.
To me, no celebration of love is deemed too small. It never is.
See, Derrick & Angie have gone a long way back, and they too, come from a tiny town 800km north. Distance was never an issue despite being in different places for a moment in time. Being far away from your family, friends you grew up with; I could relate to that. You may settle down when you move, but there will always be something amiss.
For both of them, my heart told me that is the missing puzzle. Having that someone you hold closely to the heart, sharing your life with you wherever you are, is when you truly feel at home.
Twas’ a beautiful evening.
