Year when love struck, quick and strong
Louise Leahy looks back on an unforgettable year -- a fairytale adventure that ended in marriage and new family, and a baby on the way
Whatever happens in my life, I am never going to forget 2010. During the year, I met and married a man within a month of meeting him.
We moved in together, and our children now make a combined happy family. And we also have a baby due within weeks. I last wrote in this newspaper about how my life had changed last summer. I reread the words a few days ago and I still feel a sense of awe when I reflect on the year just ended.
At the time, our story was shared with so many that friends would sometimes ask if I cared about opening up publicly about such a private matter.
