Fate...and Pretty Lights

Two years ago, almost to the day, I put up this post about my hometown. The first comment was from Steve, my new blog friend, and I added an extra photo just for him:

I do too Steve - I love going up The Peak - the mountain overlooking the city, and watching day turn into night and the lights all coming on.We have something quite unusual here, every night at 8pm, the skyscrapers take part in a light show...I'll see if I can find a pic and post it!

This was the picture:


Little could either of us have known back then that, on Sunday, 4 May 2008, he'd stand by my side, as my husband, and take his own photograph of the lightshow across the harbour:

Patsy - it's a crazy wonderful world :) I did not know you had been here - when was this??!!

Annie - as the song goes "fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you". They can and it did :)

Tim - Everywhere I go now, there's a memory of Steve, I can't wait until he's actually here (about a month and counting) :)

I remember the first time you posted the picture. I loved it and downloaded it. Look at how much more beautiful it is now. Can you imagine where we'll all be 2 years from now!!! Hopefully, seeing the world with even happier eyes!!! Is that possible?

Absolutely WOW!

Fate is just incredibly, Veracity, I never in my wildest dreams thought all this would happen, just from opening a blog :)

Patsy - I wish I'd known you then, I hope you saw the real HKG :)

Jac - It's hard to believe it's been two whole years....time is flying by ever so fast, but so many things have filled those 24 months. Yes, I wonder what the next two years will bring and where we'll all be then. I think 'happier' is always a possibility!!

FB - It really is a WOW isn't it :) What a wonderful journey I'm on :) And you are too....waiting to hear an update on your blog!!
