As a small town girl, I certainly did not see myself as someone who would have the opportunity to move to another country. I was thinking about this last week when I was looking at condominium information at www.parclife.net online. My husband told me that he would let me choose our next home, and it just didn’t seem real to me yet! I told him that it probably wouldn’t feel real to me until we found our next home and got settled in. My life has changed so much in the past few years.
I worked in a small boutique for about 5 years. The town that I lived in was a sleepy little place where very few exciting things happen. One day, my future husband walked into the store during one of my shifts. He mentioned that he needed to find a birthday gift for his mom, and I showed him a number of different things in the shop that he might like. I couldn’t help but notice how handsome he was. He was wearing a business suit, and he mentioned that he was just passing through on a business trip. I felt that he was completely out of my league, as I quietly helped him pick out a an amazing necklace for his mom. Before he left, he asked me out for dinner, and that’s how our relationship started.
After two years of dating, we are now married. He works for a major real estate company, and he travels a lot. We agreed that it would be a good idea for him to help open a new location, and to my surprise, he chose to do that in Singapore! I was floored when he told me that he would need to be there for two years and I would be coming with him. I am pretty excited about what is to come for the two of us over the next two years.
