"Lightning strikes maybe once, maybe twice.
Oh, and it lights up the night and you see your gypsy..." - Fleetwood Mac

I got this outfit at the Free People store I visited in Tennessee. It was on a mannequin, and I instantly fell in love. It's a dress and a skirt. I've never worn a skirt over a dress before, but this really works because the skirt is so sheer it needs something under it. It was out of my comfort zone price-wise, but I just couldn't leave the store without it. It just felt like me.

The decision to start a new life was not an easy one. I knew I would be out of my comfort zone for awhile and that it would be very costly, but I didn't really have a choice. I fell in love. He's the love of my life. He understands me like no other. He allows me to embrace the gypsy spirit that's inside of me. He doesn't judge me or try to make me into what he wants me to be.

Love like this only comes along once, maybe twice a lifetime. Despite all the hardships I'm going through, I'm so happy to have found it. For the first time in my life I feel truly free.
