Engagement is a very magical moment. The most wonderful is when it’s a surprise. It’s exactly three years today since our engagement, and we’re already married for more than two years … We still go back to that time and think about it fondly. However, it was close the engagement would not happen…

At that particular time, we worked in two different countries. I had a lot of work. I used to work 12h a day and in my “free time” I was working on my doctoral thesis … There was no strength. The body refused to obey. I got really sick…

We saw each other every weekend. Once in Gdynia, once in Rotterdam. It was my turn to fly to Netherlands. Philipp was so disappointed when I told him on Skype that I will probably not come this time. I asked him to change reservation and come to Gdynia. I can only imagine what was going on in his head, because this weekend he planned for over a month! I do not really know how he persuaded me, but eventually after two days of my husband making some extremely therapeutic arguments and a slightly better feeling, I decided to gather to the airport on Friday afternoon.

An hour before departure I called Philipp with some surprising news …

Me: “Honey, the airport announced the bomb alarm and it is closed. Probably all evening flights will be canceled. Tomorrow it’s not worth coming, because on Sunday I have to go back.”

Him: silence ……..

Me: Hello darling, are you there ??

Him: Oh nooooo! (very devastating voice)

Me: Honey, it’s just one weekend. I’ll definitely see you next weekend! I’ll call you in an hour and let you know how the situation looks like. They told us to wait an hour for a final decision about today’s departures.

I think it was really a miracle, but ultimately the three planes took off that day and my flight was in those three! You can imagine the happiness in the heart of my husband. He was so happy and excited to finally see me at the airport 馃檪

The next day I felt a bit better but I was still weak. It was beautiful fall weather and we both really didn’t want to sit at home all day long. Philipp suggested to go for a walk in Amsterdam, which we had been planning it some time ago. I fell asleep in the car as a child on our way from Rotterdam to Amsterdam. I was woken by gentle tapping on the glass by an elderly gentleman who looked like a nineteenth century English gentleman. I thought for the first second, that it’s a daydream but that was happening for real. It turned out that we arrived at the Hotel de l’Europe in the center of Amsterdam and we were supposed to stay there for one night as of Philipp’s little surprise. When we entered the apartment which he booked and saw all of those amazing roses all around, I had a quick thought that it might be an engagement weekend but everything happened so fast that I didn’t even have time to think. However, my main thoughts were “God, how do I look like??!” Luckily, I was wearing a warm woolen dress, which didn’t bring shame 馃槈 We freshed up and went downstairs under the pretext of dinner in the restaurant. There was a table waiting for us but… on a boat! Beautiful boat with a captain on board and a wonderful Diva singing our favorite Frank Sinatra song. What happened later, you can guess, and the pictures themselves tell the story…

Sometimes life is tricky but then pleasantly surprising… 馃檪

Zar臋czyny to bardzo magiczny moment. Najcudowniejszy jest wtedy, kiedy jest z zaskoczenia. Dzi艣 mijaj膮 dok艂adnie trzy lata od naszych zar臋czyn, a my ju偶 ponad dwa lata po 艣lubie… Nadal jednak cz臋sto wracamy do tego czasu z m臋偶em i wspominamy go z rozrzewnieniem.聽 Ma艂o jednak brakowa艂o, aby do nich nie dosz艂o…

W owym czasie pracowali艣my w dw贸ch ro偶nych krajach. Mia艂am mn贸stwo pracy. Projekt nak艂ada艂 si臋 na projekt, terminy goni艂y, pracowa艂am po 12h na dob臋, a w “wolnej chwili” obrabia艂am tak膮 tam sobie prac臋 doktorsk膮… Nie by艂o si艂y. Cia艂o odm贸wi艂o pos艂usze艅stwa. Niestety taka moja uroda, 偶e jak si臋 ju偶 rozchoruj臋, to z pomp膮. Kaszel, katar, gor膮czka, b贸l g艂owy, staw贸w, oczu, mi臋艣ni i brak si艂.

Widywali艣my si臋 z m臋偶em w owym czasie co weekend. Raz w Gdyni, raz w Rotterdamie. Nadchodzi艂 czas mojego wylotu, a ja nieprzytomna. Filip by艂 tak przera偶ony moimi s艂owami na Skypie, 偶e chyba nie przyl臋c臋 tym razem, 偶e pewnie wydawa艂oby mi si臋 to dziwne, gdybym lepiej kontaktowa艂a 馃榾 W owym czasie odebra艂am jego zmartwienie po prostu jako obawa o stan mojego zdrowia… Poprosi艂am, 偶eby zmieni艂 rezerwacj臋 i przylecia艂 do Gdyni. Mog臋 sobie tylko wyobrazi膰 co dzia艂o si臋 w jego g艂owie, gdy偶 ten weekend planowa艂 od ponad miesi膮ca! Nie wiem naprawd臋 jak mu si臋 to uda艂o ale ostatecznie po dw贸ch dniach jego niezwykle terapeutycznej argumentacji oraz nieco lepszym samopoczuciu, postanowi艂am si臋 zebra膰 i uda膰 w pi膮tek na lotnisko.

Godzin臋 przed odlotem dzwoni臋 do Filipka z pewn膮 jak偶e zaskakuj膮c膮 nowin膮…

Ja: “Kochanie, lotnisko jest zamkni臋te, gdy偶 og艂osili alarm bombowy i najprawdopodobniej dzisiejsze wieczorne loty zostan膮 odwo艂ane. Jutro ju偶 nie op艂aca mi si臋 przylecie膰, bo w niedziel臋 musz臋 wraca膰…”

On:聽 聽 聽cisza ………

Ja: Halo kochanie, jeste艣 tam??

On: O nieeeee…… (totalnie za艂amanym g艂osem)

Ja: Kochanie, to tylko jeden weekend. W nast臋pny na pewno si臋 zobaczymy! Zadzwoni臋 za godzin臋 i dam zna膰 jak sytuacja wygl膮da. Ka偶膮 nam czeka膰 godzin臋 na ostateczn膮 decyzj臋 co do dzisiejszych odlot贸w.

To by艂 chyba naprawd臋 cud ale ostatecznie trzy samoloty wystartowa艂y tego dnia i w tym m贸j! Mo偶ecie sobie wyobrazi膰 szcz臋艣cie w sercu mojego m臋偶a. Jak przylecia艂am, to a偶 kipia艂 z rado艣ci 馃檪

Nast臋pnego dnia czu艂am si臋 lepiej ale nadal by艂am s艂aba. By艂a pi臋kna jesienna pogoda i 偶al by艂o siedzie膰 w domu. Filip zaproponowa艂 zatem aby艣my udali si臋 na spokojny spacer po Amsterdamie, kt贸ry ju偶 dawno z reszt膮 planowali艣my. Zasn臋艂am w aucie jak dziecko na trasie z Rotterdamu i w og贸le drogi nie pamietam. Obudzi艂o mnie delikatne pukanie w szyb臋 starszego Pana, kt贸ry wygl膮da艂 jak XIX wieczny angielski d偶entelmen. My艣la艂am przez pierwsze sekundy, 偶e mi si臋 to 艣ni ale sen okaza艂 si臋 jaw膮. Okaza艂o si臋, 偶e dotarli艣my do hotelu De L’europe w centrum Amsterdamu i mieli艣my zosta膰 tam na jedn膮 noc w ramach takiej niby ma艂ej niespodzianki Filipka. Kiedy jednak weszli艣my do apartamentu przez niego zarezerwowanego i widz膮c w nim ilo艣膰 r贸偶 dooko艂a, przesz艂o mi przez my艣l, 偶e to mo偶e weekend zar臋czynowy 馃榾 Wszystko jednak potoczy艂o si臋 tak szybko, 偶e nie mia艂am specjalnie czasu na d艂ugie my艣lenie. Moja jednak my艣l przewodnia kr膮偶y艂a wok贸艂 s艂贸w “Bo偶e, jak ja wygl膮dam!” Ca艂e szcz臋艣cie mia艂am na sobie ciep艂膮 we艂nian膮 sukienk臋, kt贸ra wstydu nie przynios艂a 馃槈 Od艣wie偶yli艣my si臋 i zeszli艣my na d贸艂 pod pretekstem kolacji w restauracji, a co si臋 okaza艂o, zamiast stolika czeka艂a na nas 艂贸d藕 z kapitanem na pok艂adzie oraz cudownie 艣piewaj膮c膮 Div膮 nasz膮 ulubion膮 piosenk臋 Franka Sinatry. Co wydarzy艂o si臋 p贸zniej, mo偶ecie si臋 domy艣le膰, a zdj臋cia same opowiadaj膮 histori臋…

Takie to 偶ycie czasem p艂ata figle ale te偶 potem mi艂o zaskakuje 馃檪 Ot nasza historia zar臋czynowa…
