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 completely 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: 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!

Art Gowns

Were you ever impassioned to make an Art Gown from 150 O’s?

Yes! Then you probably know this year is Canada’s 150th birthday.

In 1967, Canada was 100 years old. Our national anthem is “O Canada”. In celebration, Joyce Wieland created a famous lithograph of O’s formed by her red painted lips.

Yet, this is the Art Gown dedicated to Ralph from Bluefish Way, and Ralph lives in Spain. Ah, but he lives in Cañada del Real Tesoro, Spain. Canada/Cañada – it was a thrilling discovery.

According to Mini-Me, Ralph, and what Belen Soto told me, it means Path to the Royal Treasure.

Turned out the path to O Royal Treasure was a 4 month trek.

150 flowers were created. Using a dinner plate, and 2 different sized saucers. I cut out 150 circles, gathered the edges, & drew them  into flowers. I painted my lips red, formed an…

327: 🇪🇸 Spain, 🇦🇹 Austria, 🇨🇦 Canada …. WHAT !!!

Re-blogging this absolutely sweet post from my love Ralph!

Bluefish Way

~Resa’s beautiful Art Gown~

My dear friend Resa from Toronto,  Canada, has dedicated her latest creation to me.  I am really thrilled and honoured.  Thank you my friend.

This is her story of how it came about.

“I want to tell you about this Art Gown I’m making.

Quiet Samantha !!

It goes back to the beginning of May. That is when I began to think about an idea for the gown.  As I knew I would be dedicating it to Ralph, the first thing I thought of was a “cat” theme.  Then I thought of a humour gown, which made me think of court jesters and harlequins. This lead to thoughts ofthe Venetian Ball, where many of the gowns seem to have a harlequin effect.

However, there are challenges for the Art Gowns, and this is what helps define them as art.  I am not…

June 30, 2017 Time to let all of you know more about how I found real love

Hello dear friends and furpals!

Only a very few will know at least a little bit about the relationship side in my life. I won’t go into too much detail about myself in that regard, just that I simply never met anyone who accepted me just like I am as a girlfriend. Everyone I got to know, would soon talk about nothing more than the ways in which I needed to change myself and how I would need to accept things as they wanted them to be, since it’s considered the norm usually. Since I’m not the norm, I was automatically expected to be the one to change.

To myself, I’m happy to be as I am, I like myself and am happy with myself. I just appreciate everything that I have and don’t even think about things that I don’t have.  I just concentrate on every bit of good in life, every good day, every good hour, my sweet Murli, Dad and the wonderful friends I have. All these things I am so grateful for.

I lived day-to-day, happy within myself and my life, and did not even consider that I will be in a relationship in the future. Every day, I just went about my life as it is and has been for many years. I take care of everything I can do that isn’t limited by my pain conditions. I help my Dad, and have so much fun blogging, commenting and posting everywhere my friends are. I made many wonderful friends that way and some them I consider close friends by now.

Going about my usual day, reading blogs and comments, I came across a profile picture, Ralph’s profile picture. I don’t know anymore if it was in someones Sidebar with many links to other blogs, or if it was within the comments that I came across the profile picture of Ralph. Somehow, and I still can’t even find the words for it. I was drawn to it instantly. Nothing like that had ever happened, and I saw so many pictures of others online. But with Ralph’s picture, it was more like BANG! And it drew me closer like a massive star.

So of course I went to check out his blog, read many of his blog posts, his comments, the About page. Everything I read on Ralph’s blog, just drew me in even closer. It’s a combination of so many things that are just out of this world wonderful. I commented and from then on, we were posting comments on each others blogs. Over the course of the first months, I fell in love with him and there was really nothing I could do about it, it just kept getting more and more. Though, in my mind I knew I needed to be careful, because I was thinking a relationship would just impossible with me. I also didn’t want someone so wonderful and kind as Ralph is, with so much love to give, to end up unhappy. I worried about this, despite having a very good feeling about it. So I remained quiet about it for months, as I really did not want to cause any upset and emotional turmoil within Ralphs life.

But as the time went by, with us communicating over the comments on our blogs, I just sent an email to Ralph in the beginning of June. I couldn’t take it anymore and just wanted to talk with him more. We had such wonderful and amazing conversations in our comments already, and so I wanted more communication with him. I also sent him a link to my photo album where I have 100s of pictures of Murli, weather pics and cloud formations, and of my city, as well as two pictures of myself, as I just wanted him to see more of my life.

From then on we kept emailing each other long emails, and soon we started having voice calls, a couple of hours long, and every day. In one of the first calls we had, and after a couple very long emails in which we both opened up about what we feel, we became a couple. Every day since, we’ve been messaging, emailing and having calls over the internet. It’s absolutely wonderful! There are just no words anymore to describe how amazing it all is.

I have never in my life felt anything like this. I feel so much unconditional love, and we have been so at ease with each other right from the first comments on our blogs. It just continued on like that, and whatever we did and however we communicated, we were and are always so natural, at ease and comfortable with each other. From the beginning it was and still is like we’ve known each other all our lives already. There is no worry, no barriers, no uncomfortable silence or worries about what to say and what not to say. We both just freely talk and speak our minds, and pour out our hearts. Never in my life have I met someone so similar to myself in so many ways. Our personalities, the way in which we do things, the way in which we just go about our days as well as so many interests we have in common, and the same likes and dislikes. It all feels completely natural and comfortable. My love for Ralph is unconditional, and all I want is a life with us together and the cats.

On July 12th, I will fly to Spain, and stay for a couple of weeks. A time we both await like nothing ever before. There are so many things to look forward to in regards to the future and life itself now. Ralph loves cats just as I do and has two wonderful kitties, which are Sonic and Samantha, and my future furkids and Murlis new siblings. Yaaaaaaaaay!

And as I mentioned in my previous post, a really wonderful thing happened regarding my daily migraines. Ever since we became a couple… my daily migraines have decreased massively. All the things that would normally trigger migraines, don’t cause them and that’s been like it for weeks now. The only time I seem to still get a migraine is physical exhaustion and heavy lifting. It’s absolutely amazing to me and opens up so many new possibilities in life. I can’t remember when I ever felt that good physically and it’s just stunning! It’s beautiful!

Ralph is such a wonderful, loving and kind man, and I still just can’t believe my luck. I feel like I’m the luckiest woman ever and I can not wait for us to be together in person soon!

We don’t care about our age difference, it does not matter. We fit together so perfectly, so smoothly and it could not be more wonderful and special. And it’s all very special.

There will be more updates coming, which I’ll post from Spain.

Here are two beautifully written posts Ralph wrote about us:
