But then I forgot to go back before leaving town.
Fast forward to Christmas when we were out shopping and looking for unusual items. I took my husband to this store where he looked around. He wound up buying that book—and later giving it to me as a gift.
He had no idea I had fallen in love with it six months before.
I guess the book was meant to be mine. When I flip through its fragile pages, I am in awe of the beauty inside.

It's a reminder to me that things that are meant to be together will eventually find their way to each other.
