August 8, 2017 Back in Austria, after the best time of my life! And with news!

Hello dear friends!

So where to start… after so much has happened, so much is happening and the long time I’ve been gone from my blog. I will start with an apology to all of you, every single one of you wonderful friends, the ones who’ve known me and the many who came here through the blog of my dearest Ralph. I apologise for not posting on here, like I had thought I will do. I travelled to Spain, thinking I’ll be posting from there… But then Ralph and I were so much within our own happiness, enjoying every second we had together. From the moment I got out of the Taxi in front of Ralph’s home in Spain, to our first hug, we were just in the clouds with our minds. We were pretty much useless for anything else but enjoying each others company.

We were just as relaxed, natural, and at ease with each other, as we’ve been all the time before during our many hour-long calls, our emails and messages. It was even better than I had expected. We are so good together, it’s pretty much a miracle. We complete each other in a perfect way. And from the first things we did together, like making orange juice, we were a perfect team in even such little tasks. Everything between us is smooth, happy, natural and totally uncomplicated. It’s like we understand each other blindly, and as if we’ve known each other for all our lives.

It really was so amazing, so much more than I could never have imagined before, that we forgot everything else, as the time went by so quickly. Ralph started to reply to many of his lovely readers after quite a while, little by little. I was usually beside him or nearby, but still useless for writing a blog post…

The cats Samantha and Sonic are just the sweetest! They too stole my heart in no time and I love them! They seem to have taken a liking to me as well! Yay! I had so much fun playing with them, cuddling them, and taking to them. It was so sweet to sleep in a bed with Ralph and two cats!

As for sweet Murli, I was so very relieved and happy, because she was just fine, and happy, eating and playing and cuddling normally, thanks to my Dad. He took good care of her and they had quite a bit of fun. I was in communication with Dad every day, so I constantly knew how she’s doing, which put me at ease. Although I was missing her lots, and I cried for quite a while when the train left Graz for Vienna, on my first day of travel to Spain (I had to take a hotel room near the airport, since the flight to Malaga, Spain, was going very early in the morning the next day).

I will be writing a couple more posts soon, as there is so much to post about, I can’t do it in just one post. There are many pictures and things to write about, so I will do that in a couple separate posts. Today, this post is for the most important updates, so everybody knows about what’s going on with us.

So on to the news!

Back when we were still only communicating over the distance, in our many hours long daily calls over google hangouts, and countless long messages and emails, we were already amazed at how amazingly well we get on. We never seem to run out of things to talk about, and we are able to talk about everything. We’re both open and honest with each other, and we found that we have all interests in common, and the things we like and dislike, the way in which we go about our lives and the way in which we deal with things. We constantly found new things we had in common. And everything is so smooth and natural between us, so easy and relaxed and happy, it’s like a dream. Something like this doesn’t normally happen I always thought. I certainly would have never expected to find someone to love and who would love me. I had given up on finding someone for me long ago, when I was about 25. Now with 37, BANG! Finding the love of my life, when I least expected it.

Our time together in Spain, absolutely and completelyย reaffirmed what we had already felt and wanted before I came to Spain, and much much more on top of that. While there, Ralph and I got engaged, all official with a ring and everything. I had said YES within a millisecond. YAY!!!!! And I say Yes a quadrillion times more, endlessly for the rest of our lives. I say yes with all I am, and my heart and soul. Not a single hint of any doubts in either of our hearts.

For some, or even many, it might seem crazy, and that we’re doing things too fast… But for someone on the outside, it’s just different, as they can’t see within our hearts and minds, and how wonderful we are together, and how well we take care of each other and how happy we are, and how absolutely honestly we mean it with each other. For us, there is no reason to lose any time that we could spend together as a couple, as husband and wife. There’s no reason to wait, as everything is already clear and it could not become any more clear and certain that we are right for each other. So any waiting period would not change anything, but would just be time we’re not together. And with time, everybody can see for themselves how wonderful we are together and how much we help and support each other.

Hopefully, within September, Ralph will be able to come to Austria, as well as the cats, his belongings and all the contents of his apartment, after I have found us a home here in or around my city of Graz. From the moment on, that I have my dearest Ralph back, as I pick him up from the airport in Vienna, he will never again have to do anything alone, as I’ll be there, with him, for him and through everything. I love him so much, and I want to see him happy and make his life easier, in any way that I’m able to. Ralph is such a big support for me as well, with my anxiety, and my medical conditions, and together we are complete. Together we can get things done perfectly, as we really complete each other to such a degree, it’s like we’re really meant to be together.

Some of you will already know about it all, since Ralph’s post went live late last night, and the wonderful and talented Resa, has finished her newest art gown, which was another really miraculous thing, because of the way the ideas for the gown and the gown itself seemed to have gone their own way, as if there was some foresight involved. Resa also mentioned us and our announcement in her own very sweet words. You can read all about it here:ย O Royal Treasure

I will also reblog Ralph’s and Resa’s post on my blog, as they’re just so wonderfully amazing and important.

I thank you so much Ralph, for your amazingly wonderful post about us, and I thank you as well Resa, for dedicating your stunningly beautiful gown to Ralph and now me too, and for your kind words! You are really amazing! Your gown is so beautiful, I’m just speechless. Stunned! Thank you so much!

So that’s it for now, for this post. But there will be more to follow! With more pics!

Thank you all so very much, for all the kind words towards Ralph and I, it’s been absolutely amazing. We’re speechless, getting so much love from so many of you. I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Sending lots of love to all of you, from Murli and I!

    1. Hello dear miriam!
      Thank you, for your wonderful and kind comment! I will write a lot more about it all in a couple of posts soon. It’s actually really lovely to tell all of you lovely readers about Ralph and me, and the cats of course. We really are lucky to have each other. As you say, it really is not common, at all. I treasure all of it, and every second Ralph and I have together.

      So much to look forward to! Yay!
      You are so sweet, and I thank you so much for your words.
      Bless you too! Hugs, Natascha ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. What wonderful news Natascha & Ralph!!! Congratulations on your engagement! Affairs of the heart do not run on timelines. I found that out when I was 28 & met my soul mate Paul McMenemy. He was 21 1/2. Age meant nothing; time meant nothing. He was a C3-C4 Quadriplegic & I took care of him from February until December of 1984>>> he had no idea I was wooing him & December I proposed to him. We had 13 years together. Many people thought me completely mad/insane. I never regretted my choice. Love is LOVE <3.
    And I am so happy you both found LOVE with each other!!!

    1. Hello Sherri- Ellen :)
      Thank you so much for your congratulations. So kind !
      (I am going to speak for myself now).
      What a lovely story about you and Paul. I am so pleased that you had 13 wonderful years with him after you took the plunge and asked him to marry you. A wonderful story ! I never had an inkling that Natascha had completely fallen in love with me. I didn’t have a clue until one day she wrote me a beautiful email of her love for me straight from her heart. I fell for her that instant and the rest of our story is still unfolding with so much love for each other. One day soon we will all be together again in Austria, this time for ever.
      Thank you again for your lovely comment. Ralph <3

        I’m so glad I wrote that email to you back then! Yay!

        Love you lots my Ralph,

      2. HAHAH Ralph love happens when we least expect it ii think…Paul never had a clue either until I proposed!!! It’s very sweet when men do not realize they are loved & then find out….I’ll never forget the look in Paul’s eyes…I suspect when you read Natascha’s email you had a similar dreamy amazed look….
        I am so happy you two found each other!!! I totally LOVE ‘happy endings’!

          I am so happy that we found each other as well, but I am biased as I love Natascha so much. At the moment it is “happy beginnings” and I do hope that Natascha and I will live happily ever after.

      Wow, thank you so so so much! You’re so sweet! And you are so very right too! Love is LOVE, and it does not care about anything other than being together with the one you love. I totally understand you too and I’m so glad you had those 13 wonderful years together. LOL, Ralph had no idea either, that I was totally falling in love with him for a while in the beginning lol.

      Thank you so very much for your kind and lovely words. Means so much to me, especially from you. I’m so happy as well! Feel so lucky!
      Now there’s lots to do and lots to catch up on, with you and all other lovely friends and finding us a lovely place. And thankfully it’s not difficult at all here to find an apartment. I’m just looking around, and I know that when I come across the right place, I’ll know right away.

      But I’m so sorry for my late reply. I didn’t get a notification email. I was relying on them to alert me to comments, as I wasn’t online for most of the last month. Oh dear… I need to fix that, so it will hopefully notify me again.

        1. Aww thank you! We’re fine, both of us and the cats. We’re feeling very happy and excited to finally be together again. There is just so much we look forward to. I just hope the weather will be fine in Vienna late Friday night, as there is a cold front coming in. As of today, the forecast says the cold front will reach us Thursday afternoon and Friday will be calm, but cool. But usually, that late at night, the winds are usually calmer anyway. My gut feeling says everything will be fine. It will be the most wonderful moment and a huge relief for all of us, when we see each other again at the arrivals hall in Viennaโ˜บ

          Can’t wait to write my little update from the hotel in Vienna, to tell you all that Ralph, the cats and I are together in our Hotel room and everything is fine๐Ÿ˜ƒ

          Hope you are doing well and you have a lovely day!

      Yes! So unexpected! Not in a million years would I have expected to meet the love of my life just randomly like that on the internet, through blogging, through our cats. Because of cats, and through the comments section on a cat-friends blog, I found Ralph’s blog. Yay! for the cats! They’re good luck! ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ธ

      And YAY for absolutely wonderful and kind people like you! The amount of love we get from all of you is just so beautiful, and we both really appreciate it so much. Feels good to have people cheering you on ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜ฝ

      The landscape here will look quite similar to the mountainous region in southern Spain. Just the vegetation is a bit different and more green. We’ll have a lovely life here, I’ll make sure of it ;-)
