Reflecting on Valentine’s Day 2015

Three years ago, ironically enough on Valentine’s day, my then husband and I got separated. I remember how afraid I was from the unknown: I did not have any family in the US to lean on, our friends did not know how to deal with the separation,and I felt so lonely. I thought to myself how ironic it was that I am in the wedding business, my job is to document couples on their happiest day, celebrating the love to each other, a day that they become a family, while my family was crumbling down in front of me. I was worried that it might affect me and I would not be able to do my job.

I remember thinking Valentine’s day will never be the same for me.

Instead, I found out that what I do actually saved me from losing hope and going to dark places. Seeing the love of my clients on their wedding day made my heart happy. Every ceremony I photographed the tears of joy still came down and I knew it would be OK.

And it was….Even better than OK.

My family flew thousands of miles to come and comfort me, and we all headed to Hawaii and had the best vacation ever {because what is a better way to forget about your problems than Hawaii?}

As soon as I got back from Hawaii, I met the love of my life {through Jdate, if you might ask}. We did not expect this to happen, but we fell over hill for each other. For the last 2.5 year we have beat all odds, like a long distance relationship, quitting jobs, and moving to a new country and we came up on top. We even managed to keep a great and healthy friendship with my ex, and I feel we have created a new extended beautiful family and I am so thankful for that.

Three years later, on Valentine’s day, I feel so blessed, so loved, and so so happy.

 

My heart is full.

 

I have amazing clients, awesome friends, close-knit family, bright beautiful daughter, a precious dog, and a wonderful man by side.

 

I wanted to thank my man, my valentine.

 

I love you to the moon and back

 

I can’t wait to celebrate with you our union in front of our family and friends.

 

Happy Valentine’s Day

Xoxo,

Inbal
