Describe the happiest day of your life.

Bloganuary day 17

This is another tough cookie. I have had so many amazing days that I have lived throughout my life thus far. From my wedding, to receiving my permanent residency in Australia, to becoming a nurse, to passing my driving licence etc etc. However, the one day that sticks out in my mind, where I was so happy all day long and bursting with joy, was way back in 2017. I had just returned from an around the world trip in six days!!!

I had planned a world trip that would last for a year. I was going backpacking with my good friend and three months prior to departing, I had just fallen in love with my partner, my first real relationship.

My friend decided against travelling and I thought ‘I can do this on my own’. Off I headed after a very emotional goodbye with my partner and many epic leaving parties from my friends, family and my two jobs.

I traveled to New York for a couple of days and stayed with my friend there, before heading to my next stop in Boston. I was so sad every day being away from my partner. I was calling him every day and wishing we could be together. After six days I called my parents for advice and they advised to come home immediately. That was all I needed to hear. I stormed straight to the airport to book the next flight home. I was on standby and luckily for me there was one flight left and it was in business class but they would just charge me economy! I was over the moon!

Eight hours later I arrived back home to Ireland. My partner collected me and it was the BEST feeling ever, walking towards each other in the airport arrivals, smiling from ear to ear, a very ‘Love Actually’ moment, if you have ever seen the movie! This was definitely one of my best and most memorable days 😊.

This week we celebrate 16 years together. Maybe that wouldn’t have been the case if I had travelled solo for a year. What’s meant to be is meant to be ❤️

  1. Congratulations on 16 years together! My husband and I will celebrate 16 years together this coming June, so we are not far behind you. But our love story is not nearly so dramatic as yours! He did leave for 2 weeks holiday 3 months after we got together – the holiday was pre-booked before we even met so he couldn’t put it off.

  2. I love to see someone who has found their partner in life. Leaves hope for all. Congratulations!! Mine is too bizarre after yours – after getting divorced after 20 yrs. of marriage going back to my maiden name was what brought me happiness. I was back to who I am meant to be and I think it will probably stay that way.

  3. When I left my partner in India, I could not forget the look on his face as he walked away at the door of the airport. We wouldn’t see each other for 2 years. I cried for weeks remembering how sad he looked. When he finally arrived here in 2020, we married as quickly as possible! Best decision ever.
