a change in plans.

On a flight somewhere over Ireland, two travel companions decided they couldn't stand to part ways a few days later in California, when one of them had to return home. And so the boy who works in Iraq booked seat 2A on a flight to Wisconsin, so he could spend his final week of leave with the girl who had booked seat 2B.

It has been reported that passengers 2A and 2B were spotted holding hands on a layover in Chicago's O'hare International Airport, before boarding their final flight to Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

What does this mean? I'm not about to pretend I know. For today, it meant Monday morning bowling, a brewery tour and ice cream cones. It could be sparkly and wonderful, or it could be heartbreak. All I know is, I've experienced and survived both...and am daring enough to try again for the sake of what could be.

Stay tuned. :)
