Finally, my dear, we are able to step our feet in this old, culture-rich, beautiful country.
It took as so many years to get here, a lot of low-paying sideline jobs, a lot of tiring graveyard shifts, a lot of painful tears and stinky sweat, just to fulfill our European-dream.
Remember my love, that today is the beginning of a life that we dreamed of building together. In this gorgeous city will rise our beautiful home that will be filled with love, between us and our six children. (Okay, six is too many but I want six!) 🙂
Remember my love, that I love you before we have this city, I love you as we first smell the autumn wind of this country, and I will love you until our last breathing day here as well.
Brushing off my tears, I crumpled the letter that reminds me…
…of his long-forgotten promises.
