Notes—Week of Love

For today’s Love Themed-This Writer’s Journey I have to mention my sweet hubby. Now, I know, it’s Friday and you’re like, “Oh, enough lovey-dovey.” Humor me, it’s just one more day, k? Celebrating fifteen years of marriage is super-exciting. And heck, the fact that I still kinda LIKE the guy, is even more exciting. All joking aside…..I really wouldn’t be where I am when it comes to my writing had he not given me the support I needed to keep moving ahead.

***Here is a repost of one of my favorites from the last Week of Love*** When it came to choosing a person to do the scripture readings at our wedding, I didn’t hesitate–Lynn & RG Boeyink. That’s Charlie’s Mom and Dad. First, they’re awesome role models (married 43 years now!) Second, their faith continually astounds me.

Throwback Thursday–Week of Love

When was it Love? –Week of Love

When it came to choosing a person to do the scripture readings at our wedding, I didn’t hesitate–Lynn & RG Boeyink. That’s Charlie’s Mom and Dad. First, they’re awesome role models (married 43 years now!) Second, their faith continually astounds me. Third–well, there is no third, I just KNEW they were the people to do it. But when Lynn and RG made their way to the podium, I got a little nervous because I saw Lynn carrying a piece of paper. It was then that I knew she’d written something down. It was then that I knew, I would need[…]

Love Stories

~~~ [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eO3lmDjHZL4] ~~~ I’m a big fan of love and romance. Heck, I write about–well, romance with a kick of paranormal–but still… Since it was Valentine’s Day a couple of days ago, I want to keep the love theme going. So, for those of you who are engaged or married, tell us your story. How did you get engaged?
