Do you believe in Serendipity?

Has it ever happened to you?

I'd describe the way I met my boyfriend exactly like that. Well, if I had to describe it in one word :)

Serendipity means a "fortunate happenstance" or "pleasant surprise".

The first noted use of "serendipity" (meaning pleasant surprise) in the English language was by Horace Walpole. He said he formed it from the Persian fairy tale The Three Princes of Serendip, whose heroes "were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of".
