Standing, Nicole took a breath of the fresh Autumn air. For the first time in years, she was happy and content with her life. It had been a long, hard battle bouncing back since her divorce over two years ago. She hoped to never go back to the place of deep depression an anxiety, ever again.

She had been married for a long time. They had conquered many things together and raised their family. Over time though, their lives changed and they drifted away from each other. They had tried their best but it was time to throw in the towel and to move on.

It was a great adjustment for Nicole. After 26 years, she no longer had anyone to come home to, and to take care of. The children were grown now and had families of their own. The divorce was simple and discreet. However, the emotion and anxiety of love and loss, had caused a deep depression and a lack of trust for Nicole.

So she came back home, a place where she hoped to recuperate and to learn to rid herself of the depression, anxiety and panic attacks. Looking out at the scenery in front of her, she knew that she had made the right decision.  She loved the beautiful autumn and the crisp fresh air. It reminded her of a time when she was young and carefree.

Nicole was ready to fall in love again. Gingerly, she stepped out of her comfort zone. She didn't want to spend the rest of her life alone. She missed feeling love and affection and knowing that she had someone to come home to.

She ran into him a few days later. He came into her office one day. He was very handsome and rugged looking. His eyes were a clear blue and he had a beautiful smile. One that would warm up a person on a
cold day.  The way he looked at her made Nicole feel alive and brought a blush to her cheeks.

Soon his sense of humor and love and affection won her over. She was happy again.
