I am a drama queen who loves to dream. When I was this little girl, I watched a lot of movies where in every movie a guy would see a girl and fall in love at first sight and then they would get transported to a new dreamland where they would sing and dance and fall more in love. Every time I saw such movies, I would picture myself falling so much for a guy. I had everything planned in my head. *blush*
I was always fascinated with the filmy-love-life (SRK and Surya always fascinated me) and I never bothered to talk to any guy in real life except for a very very few of them. I wanted and waited for that special guy to love me. I wanted him to propose knees down. I wanted him to buy me red roses. I thought of our eyes meeting and how we would get transported to the dreamland far away from this world.
In reality, yes! I told Lemon about all of this. Or at least he made sure of learning what all I would like in a guy before meeting me. So, most of my dream came true with Lemon in my real life. He came with big bunch of red-roses and waited for me in the station where we first met after few months of chatting and e-mailing. He proposed to me in one of those busy streets in New Delhi. He was knees down. He suddenly had a red rose in his hand out of nowhere. And then there were people looking at us. Yes yes all this is true! And that was my filmy moment! *we did not get transported to a dreamland though*
Our romantic dreamland experience happened very soon after marriage. Our first trip was traveling to the US of A. Hawaii was our dreamland. It seemed like the perfect destination. It all looked and happened just like I dreamt of seeing those movies. The beautiful scenery, the ever-loving-Lemon, the beaches, the fireworks, the music, the dance and what not. We stayed in a hotel facing the beautiful ocean, watched fireworks holding each other –> my awwwww moment!
Even in our latest trip to Canada, he made sure that we stayed in a suite overlooking the Niagara falls and watched the fireworks. And sometimes, I do have to keep giving him hints about what I would like him to do and when he obliges — it’s all awww!
Today was one such day. He packed lunch. For those of you who already think that he cooked. No! He did not. He just packed us lunch that I cooked. That’s a lot of help to me you know. He also did so many other things today that I have always asked him to do without a single reminder. Wow! I am impressed. It’s so nice to feel this way. Let’s just be this.
